Hi everyone! I'm popping in this morning to share the card I made for my second week as Artist of the Month over at Our Craft Lounge. I'm a tad delayed in posting (okay, a little more than a tad) due to a work trip to San Antonio, so please forgive my tardiness. Hopefully you were able to check out my project on the OCL blog and this is a repeat! I had the pleasure of working with a lovely set called Love Notes. Check it out:
I plan on using this set again, so keep an eye out for more fun projects ;] I have a TON of ideas for this set...just not enough time in the day to bring them to fruition all at once. For my card, I used one of my newest paper packs over at My Time Made Easy called Island Love. Now, I realize I also released a more traditional Valentine/love color palette for this paper, but I wanted to go against the grain of what's expected. So, I stuck with the pretty Pool Party, Calypso Coral and white palette. I created a double frame if you will to bring the focus to my script panel. If you look closely you'll see that I first stamped the "shaded" background in Soft Sky and then embossed the script in white on top. I highlighted the last word in the script, "love" to draw the eye to the first word in my sentiment.
I added some white, frilly trim layered with some teal seam binding and a coral bloom, then adhered the second word in my sentimet, "YOU". Hot glue is my adhesive of choice when I play with blooms, so I just tucked my tag in while it was still hot. I added some antique brass SU! brads to finish the look and I was done!
I'm having such a great time using my OCL goodies and sharing them on their blog. I'm still very honored to represent OCL as their Artist of the Month ♥ I'll have another project to share on the OCL blog tomorrow! I might wait a day or two to share on my blog just to break it up a bit since this post was so late. Hope your new year is off to a wonderful start. I know I'm inspired by the possibilities and have a great feeling that this year is going to be amazing.
All the best ♥
