My first step was to get out my Distress Ink minis and a blending tool and apply a rainbow of color to a card front using a Dyan Reaveley stencil :
Back to searching my stash and I came up with a "frame" in a Teresa Collins album kit. Maybe... but it was white and had a border and was thin card and...
I grabbed my scissors to trim it a bit and a label from a Funky Junkie Boutique glassine envelope freebie. Some markers for color and an Idea -ology rub- on and I had this "embellishment":
Products used in the making of this card were:
- Stamps: Hero Arts "Wildflower Garden" (CG170)
- Stencils: Dylusions "Number Jumble 9x12" (DYS33998)
- Inks: Archival "Jet Black"; Distress Inks "Dusty Concord", "Chipped Sapphire", "Pine Needles", "Fossilized Amber", Dried Marigold", and "Barn Door"; Distress Markers "Pumice Stone", "Squeezed Lemonade", "Carved Pumpkin", "Candied Apple" and "Blueprint Sketch"; Pigma Micron 05 Archival #1 "black"; Marvy Uchida "Liquid Silver" fine; Signo Unibazl board "white"
- Papers: Paper Studio value pack notecards "white"
- Embellishments: Teresa Collins Album Kit "World Travel" (WT290); unknown label from Funky Junkie Boutique; Idea-ology Remnant Rubs "Words" (TH93055); Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi Mat Minis "Tiny Butterflies" (WVMM010)
- Adhesives: Viva Las Vegas "Miracle Tape"; Ranger Collage Glue Stick
PS. This one really got me thinking outside my usual: patterned backgrounds aren't my favorite thing to work with because, if they come out "right", I hate to cover them! Thanks, Yvonne, for the challenge!
