Today I'm playing along with three challenges that are new for me. The Challenge had a nifty sketch with some layers that are askew (and who can resist an askew layer), City Crafter is looking for burlap and Retro Rubber is looking for the crimping tool that I'm sure hasn't seen the light of day in a long time. So I put all this together and this is what I came up with.
I love to use burlap and since the color is so close to kraft I used that as my card base and then accented it with some bright yellow and black. I stamped a simple zig zag pattern on white which I hoped wouldn't detract from the die cut sentiment that I layered over it. All this is layered over a crimped layer and as I was busy crimping my card stock I remembered why I don't use that tool: it's really difficult to get that card stock to stay straight as it's passing through. The longer the paper is the worse the effect gets. It's a cool tool, but better equipped for small pieces I think.
It's very cold here. And I mean really cold. There's no snow, which is a good thing in my book, and I'll take a cold day over a snowy day any time. But I'm dreaming of spring. I keep telling myself that it will be here soon! Stay safe if you live in a cold place too!
Thanks for stopping by!
