Three in One

Thursday, August 19, 2010

You read that right!  I've got another three challenges, in one take, for you all, today.  I combined Off the Wall Craftiness' Challenge #20...
with Wee Memories' Challenge #18: Buttons, Brads, and Bling, to incorporate one or all of the three into a project...
as well as Everything But the Kitchen Sink's Sketch Challenge #21...

and came up with this.
I started this card by stamping the design images, several times, in Moonlight White ink, over the top portion of the Tempting Turquoise, cardstock, card face.
I, then, adhered the rows of punched and distressed, Perfect Plum, cardstock strips, one on top of the other, in the bottom center of the card face and topped them off with a Plum Pudding, saddle-stitch ribbon, tied in a bow, just left of center, and embellished with a row of turquoise buttons, laced together on a length of white string.
The peacock was stamped, in Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, and Elegant Eggplant inks, on a circle of white cardstock; framed by a, slightly, larger circle of Elegant Eggplant cardstock; adhered in the top center of the card face; and embellished with clear and turquoise gemstones.
Hope you're all having a super day!  We're just busy working away at our studies, cleaning, and trying to keep a busy toddler out of trouble.  The latter is enough to keep me running all day!  Hee!  Well, have a good one; and thanks, as always, for visiting me.
