Hello again! I’m back with my second card from the weekend … rather more bold and graphic than the last … look …
I sliced up some black and white card, put it together again over an adhesive covered piece of spare card, and trimmed it to size. The banner is a die cut from SSS (now retired), also cut to size … in length and width. I used some removable tape to take the little squares from the grid, coloured them randomly with Promarkers, adhered the grid to another strip of card and nestled the the squares cosily into their places. A loosey goosey (Laura speak!) nest of thread was twirled behind the banner, which was then adhered across the black and white panel. I stamped the sentiment (Annabelle Stamps, sadly now not operating), the panel was popped up on fun foam and I added a black sequin and white dot over the nest.
My inspiration for this card came from …
Runway Inspired Challenge – Michael Kors … check out that cool, graphic ensemble below! I picked out the black and white from the jacket, trousers and walls, my banner mimics the blouse, the thread nest is a nod to the handbag strap, and the sequin/dot combo reflects the belt buckle!
Virginia’s View – Geometric Patterns … both the panel and the banner.
Freshly Made Sketches – Sketch below… it’s fabulous!
SSS Monday – Trio of Colours … mine were the aqua, lime and black … the black was so key to the design, I counted that as a colour rather than a neutral … hope that’s ok!
That’s it from me for now … time for bed … I’ll be back tomorrow with my final make of the weekend! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
