Hello crafty friends! Today marks the start of a new challenge on the World Wide Open Design Team Challenge Blog. Our sponsor is Sherri Ann Baldy and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES. The only requirements to enter are that you must be on a Design Team and you must use a rubber or digital stamp.
I have used Image 618 for today's project. I colored this little beauty with my Spectrum Noir markers. I usually shy away from using my makers (on more than the skin) for these digis because they have such tiny details. I'm always afraid I will make a huge mess of them, but I actually think she turned out pretty good. I impressed myself! That's always a good feeling.
The background started out as a plain white piece of cardstock. I embossed it with a Spellbinder embossing folder and then inked it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo, Tim Holtz Wild Honey, Tim Holtz Black Soot and Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Inks.
The gear boarder is from the Cricut image set Birthday Cakes. I inked it with an embossing ink pad, put two different embossing powders on it, and set it with my heat tool.
After that I sprayed it with to give it an aged look. I also used the image set Paper Lace 2 for a couple of the individual gears.
These gorgeous red roses were hand made by me with one of my favorite files from The Cutting Cafe...3D Paper Flowers. There's even a video to show you how to put them together. I love being able to perfectly match my flowers to my project by making them myself.
I will often times make extra just to have some on hand.
I am so thankful to have a Cricut Explore that does all the cutting for me.
Here's a shot of the inside of the card.
