Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!
I’m back today with my card for Day 3 of the Pattern Play class. For Day 3’s homework we were to create a card using a hard to use and/or bold pattern. I am *so* enjoying this class! I wouldn’t have stretched myself with patterned paper were it not for it!
I actually really loved this challenge and came upon this design and card pretty quick:
Love! What do you think? Hope you love too!
I started with a neutral pattern from the My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks patterned paper collection. I trimmed a panel to size, inked the edges with my VintageTouch Chamomile ink then adhered to my Stamper’s Select White card base. This card is 3.75″ x 5.5″ – I’ve been making a lot of slimmer cards these days and now an A2 card looks ‘fat’ to me, lol! I splattered the paper with Electric Blue Glimmer Mist to add some interest and tie in with the rest of my colour scheme.
I then thought about one of the boldest patterns in my collection, and certainly one that is harder to use – it’s this pattern from the Sassafras Sunshine Broadcast collection:
Fun, but very bold and busy! To tame it I decided to die cut some clouds from it using the MFT Cloud Trio die. Flowery cards? Why the honk not?!
To help add a little subtle definition to my clouds I edged them with A:Muse Bermuda ink. I then adhered them to my base, together with a die cut I had lying on my desk (die cut from 24 Karat cardstock) using Pinflair Glue Gel.
Finally I added the sentiment from Up, Up & Away using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Well, that’s it from me for today! I would love to know what you think of this card before you get on with your day. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
