In again today with a little card I made for the Feb mood board challenge over at Off the Rails Scrapbooking. Here's the gorgeously colored mood board:
Below is how I put everything together.
I started off with a sheet of white cardstock (12" x 6") and folded it into half. Taking some papers from Maja Design, I trimmed them further into 2 sizes for layering - 5.75" x 5.75", and 5" x 5". Distress the edges and ink them.
Take some distress stain and paint (I used the same shade) and color the edges of the white cardstock. Ink the edges again.
Adhere the 3 layers together. I also added some twine underneath the second layer for a nice little bow later. Twine also because I saw the balloons in the image and the strings they were drifting from.
To make my floral paper a little more interesting, I added some modeling paste over a stencil.
And some splatters of color by mixing paint with liquid medium, both from 13@rts.
Adding a die cut doily with the edges inked.
Scrounge up a piece of canvas cloth and glue it onto the card, followed by pompom trim. I added the canvas for a fabric texture, which I figured the lady in the image must have been a fashionista (from the oversized sunnies of course!). Pompoms because they look like cute little balloons.
Colored a piece of mini flourish chipboard (Blue Fern Studios) with a few different types of pigments. Assemble everything else (flowers, embellishments etc) and voila!
You can see the purple, deep red, pink and just a tiny bit of green.
I didn't have anything stickers with "awesome" in it, so I guess being yourself is another way of being awesome :D
The Eiffel Towel trinket was just begging to be used after being hoarded for so long!
So that's all I have for today. Do check in with the blog for more details on the challenge!
