Hello, my friends. Well, it seems that I've missed quite a few of these challenges. More often than not, life gets in the way and the week is over before you know it, and other times, I either don't have the products required or I can't get my mind around an idea. This week I didn't wait until the last day to figure something out. This is card made for Grungy Monday 39, a weekly challenge all about the products and techniques of Tim Holtz, that can be found on Linda Ledbetter's blog, Studio L3. This week's challenge technique can be found here.
I decided to make mine monochromatic and stick with blue, since that's my favorite color and makes me happy. This also fits the Free for All challenge on SCS today.
I recently found a good deal on a Spellbinders die called Nested Tea Cups and immediately saw tulips and skirts, so I used the largest die to cut a skirt from the plaid I'd made.
I die cut the dress form from black, white and pacific point card stock. On the white part I stamped SU's linen background stamp in tea dye distress ink and on the pacific point piece, I stamped one of Tim's grungy dots stamps in faded jeans. I punched some partial circles around the neckline and sleeve area and added some white gel pen accents. Around the waist, I knotted some ribbon.
The background stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms and the buttons are from SU's button, button. I threaded black crochet cotton through the holes in the buttons and popped everything up.
I hand wrote the sentiment and added some faux stitching with black marker. Then I coated the buttons with crystal effects.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have time to create this weekend.
