There are several card challenge websites I really like and Paper Craft Crew is one of them. Their challenge this week is
Card Sketch #138
If you read my previous post regarding my last minute card challenge entry to Pals Paper Arts Card Challenge and how my first attempt at making the Very Vanilla mat stamped with SU! Dictionary stamp and two other stamp sets had turned into a Hot Mess of cluttered-ness, then you might recognize how I took a “Hot Mess” and used it in another card challenge.
I took the On Film die and strategically placed it to take advantage of my “mess.” I think it turned out rather well. From that starting point, I ran a piece of Pistachio Pudding through the Big Shot and embossed it with the retired embossing folder Script (not sure of the actual name) and brushed the edges with Pistachio Pudding ink. I matted it on SU! Mossy Meadow. I colored three rhinestones with the darkest of the Blendabilities Old Olive marker (in the picture, the light causes the rhinestones to reflect the Crisp Cantaloupe paper). I cut out the thanks in Mossy Meadow and Crisp Cantaloupe offsetting the Crisp Cantaloupe on the Mossy Meadow to give a shadow effect. I made the flower with the Boho Blossom punch. I punched four flowers out of the Crisp Cantaloupe; then, ran them through a crimper several times until I could pull them apart, I crumpled them up and uncrumpled them stacking them on top of each other. I punched the smaller of the flowers on the Boho Blossom punch out of the “Hot Mess” paper. I placed them all together, secured them with a brass brad (retired), and curled the petals around the brad. I lifted the frame and thanks up from the cardstock with dimensionals.
Here is the results:
Note: As I lay awake this morning, Saturday, April 11th, I realized…I think I used Pear Pizzazz paper instead of Pistachio Pudding (that’s what I get for having sheets of paper outside of their wrapping).
