Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!
Here is my card for today's challenge at the There She Goes Blog, TSG50!! Today's challenge is either paper or ribbon pleating!! How fun! This is the first time I have pleated, but it won't be the last!!!
For my layout, I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday, SFYTT, and it was perfect for what I had in mind!!
While I am stamping, I have a tv on in my stamp room. I don't necessarily watch it, but it is always background noise. Lately, I have seen the same Volkswagon commercial over and over, and that is what inspired my card! Punch buggy red!!!
I used this DARLING car (which totally reminds me of a VW Bug!) from ROFL Taglines by There She Goes and I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Crest and colored it with Copic Markers. I added a coat of Glossy Accents to the windshield and headlights. Too cute!!
I created my own sentiment, "red one", using A-Z and 123, also from There She Goes, and I cut it out, along with the focal image, with Circle Nestabilities and sponged the edges. I punched a hole in the sentiment panel and threaded it with Hemp Twine.
I used some yummy Fudge Polytwill ribbon and I pleated it, which was easy peasy! All the patterned paper is from Farm Fresh by October Afternoon (which, if you saw my last post, was still sitting on my desk!). I attached the sentiment tag through one of the pleats.
Head on over to the TSG Blog and create a card with paper or ribbon pleating!!! One lucky participent will win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store! Cool right?
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
