Fortunately I managed to finish this late yesterday afternoon, because not long after we received word that the installation of my craft room is to begin today and in fact, as I type is in progress. I don’t expect to be crafting today at all and possibly not till next week unless I can get things put away properly and organized quickly. I’m so excited to know that my space will be functional very soon.
The photo inspiration made me head in a direction using dies and paper in some of the colours shown in the photo. I used a Memory Box die called Sketchy Rings, a Nestability type set (can’t remember which company) and 3 border dies that I think are by Spellbinders. I don’t have access to them at the moment and forgot to write down the products yesterday. The PP is from an old 6″ by 6″ paper pad and fit the colours so I used it. Card front is gray from GKD, but in the photo it looks bluish. After cutting the sketchy rings in yellow I cut the background piece in turquoise, which looks darker in the photo and then I added both to the card front. I cut a 2nd sketchy ring using the pp and paper pieced the inside main circle. Using the same pp I cut the borders and after some playing decided they looked best on an angle. I wanted it all to be about curves. When searching for the PP I found a Tim Holtz Idea-ology pad with the sentiment strips and decided on the one you see here. At first I thought I wasn’t going to like the card, but in fact I do and am happy with it. It is a bit chaotic but it works!
