The Paper Players is a new challenge blog for me, and I find that I love the challenges. They do come up with some great challenges, so let's play! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge, inspired by Jaydee. Here is what I came up with:
Look at that fabulous paper bow! I came across this bow tutorial online, and I was immediately hooked. I could just imagine the possibilities! It does take a bit of practice, but it is super easy. I am going to try to either do my very first video or an detailed picture tutorial on it in the next few days. So check back for it. This layout is wonderful, I loved it the moment I saw it and knew which DSP to use. Do you recognize it? It is the Domestic Goddess DSP. There are some really fun prints and a really great color scheme with this DSP.
My main flower is the stamped flower image from Button Buddies. The scallop circle punch can punch this out, which is great. I fussy cut the other two layers, and for some reason today, my skills left me.. The edges are a bit ragged, sorry. Each one was popped up with a stampin' dimensional, and a new In Color brad was used for the center. The sentiment was stamped in pool party using the Pennant Parade stamp set. It was punched with the 3/4 inch circle punch and layered on a 1 inch Calypso coral circle punch. Some baker's twine was threaded through and around the brad. I liked the movement of it just dangling, so I did not adhere it.
Here is a nice up close picture of the bow, it is nice and three dimensional, the only thing is, it would probably get a little squished in an envelope, so I will need to figure something out, maybe a small envelope box, hmmm, I will get right on that!
Here is the inside, using up all of my scraps, it is a great way to make sure you stretch your paper. I hope you enjoyed this card, and when I had the camera out, I snapped this picture:
This is our little Sasha girl, she was all tuckered out from playing outside. She does not like the flash however, and closes her eyes just before the picture is taken. She has the cutest brown eyes, she is just too cute for her own good. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
