Since this is a new challenge for the DT at Littles Tangles challenge, we thought we'd kick it off with a few introductions and Just Say Hello.
The saga of our house renovations continue and let me just say that none of my crafting things made it out of the box yet. But the craft room's floor has been laid, the walls are painted and the base boards are back into the place. All that of course before I flew off on my business trip.
Here a quick progress picture of what it looked liked last Saturday and it's not the latest. But it gives you a glimpse into the room's wall color and the floor that we had picked up.
Needless to say my card today has no single stamp on it. Instead it whipped up with a bunch of supplies I ordered up and managed to set aside. Can you guess what they are?
Sequins of course!
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink;
Embellishments: (Sequins - Crystal Clear, Cotton Candy Satin, Lovely Lilac Satin, Ocean Breeze Satin, Mint Satin) Neat & Tangled; (Tim Holtz AlterationsTexture Fades - Retro Circles) Ranger; (Decorative Washi Tape - Woodgrain) Hambly Studio
Yep - I cut out a piece of card stock and went nuts laying down the little sequins with lots of patience and love. I had this "brilliant" idea that if I can't stamp "hello" I can at least spell it out. Funny thing is, after I layed out the "H" I had to switched gears, because the number of letters I realized for "Hello" would not fit across the card. To make matters worst, I thought I could italize the whole lettering because I thought that would look better, which resulted in cutting half sequins.
I think the idea was okay, but the implement could use a few improvements. For one, use the metallic sequins so that it would stand out more. Next, don't try to make them line up diagonally. And lastly, lay out the card stock and find a size that fits well to the sequins. And more importantly, don't try starting a card late at night...
Anyways, I hope you had a chance to check out all girl's creations and give them a huge welcome. They are a talented bunch of group that you will find as inspiring as I do.
Don't forget that one lucky winner will get a free Neat & Tangles Stamp set of their choice.
