I tried to work on a card this weekend but I wasn’t successful. I ended up making a whole lot of parts that don’t have anything to do with each other. (I think that was partially due to my confusion that we gained an hour on Sunday! LOL) I thought well if I hold tight maybe some of them would work for any challenges this week.
That was the case with this wreath, I stamped it, coloured it, embellished it and even cut it out but that’s about as far as it got! Then I sat tight…
Wahoo!! The Mojo Monday sketch this week had a circle element to it so I was back in business!
Here’s the sketch:
Here’s what I did with that Verve wreath:
I didn’t quite follow the sketch to a T, I realized a little later that perhaps I should have used a larger card base! I’m one of those peeps that cut, then measure twice…um, uh…oh…then have to cut again! The paper is from Memory Box, Mistletoe. I used Copics to colour in the wreath and Distress Inks to shade. Glossy accents is my friend and the I-Rock is soon becoming my best friend!
See those flat metal thingies in the middle of the poinsettias?
Those are “Glam Rocks” and started off looking like this:
Um, yeah…I stuck them on (I swear that I-Rock calls me 24/7!) on the wreath BEFORE I cut it out. Well, I thought…there’s only one way to find out what happens when you run it through the Big Shot! Yup…metal disks. They do look kinda cool. I just need to get my hands on a Tim Holtz texture hammer! LOL Hmmmm…
Thanks for joining me today!
