Color Cue {16}

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Welcome to Wplus9 Design's Color Cue {16}!
Talk about a color combo ripe for summer picking!  Check out what it inspired me to create!
I started this card by machine stitching, with ivory-threaded, straight stitches, around the edges of a piece of red, star burst, patterned paper; tucking a punched strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock under the right side of a strip of multi-colored, floral, patterned paper; adhering that bit near the right edge of the red, star burst, patterned paper; and machine stitching, again, with ivory-threaded, zig-zag stitches, down either of its long sides, before adhering the prepped piece to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face.
I then adhered a length of white lace, horizontally, across the bottom of the card face and wrapped a length of hemp twine, three times, over it, before tying it, in a double bow, near the right edge of the card face.
The large leaf image, from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, was stamped, in Tempting Turquoise ink, on Whisper White cardstock; hand-cut out; distressed, around its edges, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; and adhered, with dimensionals, in the center of the prepped, card face.  The "LOVE You" sentiment, from Spring Post, was stamped, in Real Red and Tempting Turquoise inks, on a Whisper White, cardstock die-cut from the All Occasion Label die; highlighted with the stamped, in Dusty Concord ink, frame from Brothers and Sisters; glittered; and adhered, in its respective location, with dimensionals, at the foot of the large, stamped leaf.
A trio of Pure Poppy buttons, laced with white string...
complete the look.
Can't wait to see what you all create with this bold, bright, color combo!  You have until Thursday, July 7, 2011, at 10:59 pm EST, to link up your takes over at the challenge link above.  But before you run get inky with it, please be sure to check out what the rest of this fabulous design team has created just for your pleasure, and thanks ever so much for stopping by!
