Hello! A quick post this morning before the doors close at Papertrey’s SAF … this is the last of my cards … it’s for the Threads Challenge … inspired by Laura’s loosey goosey thread nests! Here’s my take …
I cut the Papertrey cover plate (Modern Cross Quilt) in watercolour paper, ombré washed it in Distress Inks, split it to draw the eye to sentiment (and to fit our standard 10 x 15 cm cards!) and adhered it flat to the card base. The sentiment (from Reasons To Smile) was white heat embossed onto a black panel, I sandwiched the thread nest between it and the card base using foam tape, and finished with a scattering of bling.
I’m joining in at …
Papertrey SAF – Threads Challenge … use Laura’s loosey goosey thread nests
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes … my fifth and final entry
Seize The Birthday – No ‘Weather’ topping
Addicted to CAS – Blue
SSS Monday – Trio of Colours … mine are the watercolour Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire.
Finally, a picture of me (well, my pointing finger!) with my SAF cards, that I’m linking up for the Red Carpet Challenge …
It was such fun to spend even a little time being inspired by the team at Papertrey during SAF. I made three cards … fewer than I’d hoped … but three more than last year … and I have ideas galore for more! So I’m a happy little soul! Hope you have reasons to be happy today! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
