2014-03-04…Color challenge & casing design


A stamping friend asked me to Case this design and color theme using the supplies I had on hand and to try to come as close as I could to the original design.

I think I did ok… I found a large and small flower in a Close to My Heart set by the name of Friendship Blessings. The background was embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder.

I didn’t have a tiny clothes pin as shown in the original design. But I did have these fun clips and in the color needed for the color challenge. The tiny tag is by Stampin Up from the set Tiny tags. I thankfully got the matching punch for an easy tiny tag.

I was searching and searching for a jump ring so I could hang the tag properly from the thread. I never did find them; I ended up making my own with a round nose pliers and some floral wire. I am so surprised that it turned out 😉

The thread was originally beige. I took my Chocolate Chip ink pad and rubbed it all over the cord to change it to the color needed for the challenge.

I didn’t have enough of the tiny 1/2 beads as indicated by the original sketch. I substituted some mini holographic stickers & added glimmer by painting on some iridescent medium. The flowers were colored using a water color pencil and then blended with a water brush.

And one more look before you go on about your day…
