Paper Crafts Crew #242 – Dreams Take Flight – Taylored Expressions
Welcome back to the Paper Crafts Crew Challenge! This week we have a color challenge:
The rules are to pick 3 of the 4 colors. Well, I didn't want to leave any of these colors out! So I used them all! I decided to grab a stamp…yeah, yeah, yada yada, had it a long time, haven't used it, la la la, why don't I tell you something you haven't heard before! Anyway…lookie:
GOJUS! I think this card would be perfect for graduation or any occasion where someone is transitioning from their old life to their new one.
I colored the stamped image with Copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen and my favorite Sakura Stardust pen.
I used this great Stitches Cover Plate from Essentials by Ellen to create the background. It gives a lot of texture without a lot of volume like an embossing folder and echos the Cross-Stitch Circle die from My Favorite Things perfectly.
For accents, I used some tiny Prima flowers along with this cute wooden butterfly from Kaisercraft.
I had put a Doodlebug Lily White Sprinkles in the center of one of the flowers, but I wanted to add one more to create that important visual triangle. But the white was too white, so I colored it with a Copic marker to match the yellow on the butterfly.
