TUESDAY THROWDOWN CHALLENGE
Good Morning ladies... Tuesday Throwdown Challenge
for this week is a Shaped card. Our Sponsor is
Stampin Up Demonstrator Catherine Pooler.
The talented ladies on our team have some great
examples for you today so be sure to
stop by each of their blogs and give them some love.
I'm trying to make things that meet challenge
requirements and will fill my needs for this
busy time of year. I decided a leaf shape
would make a perfect thank you for ladies in my
Women's Ministry group. I drew a leaf then
folded all my 8 1/2 by 11 papers in half length wise. I placed the leaf on the fold as you can see the
left side of the leaf is a bit squared off so it will open.
I used my Stampin Up inks for this project. I dropped
yellows, browns greens and rusts on a piece of
foil then whiffed with water. After it all ran together
I pounced the leaves in it. I'm really happy how
they turned out, they are all a bit different. I then
made lighter colored papers and punched out
the small leaves to put on the sentiment. After
all the big leaves were colored I also randomly stamped with my SU canvas bg stamp using
brown to give a bit extra to them. I then used
a black marker to give some veining to the leaves.
In this pic you are able to see how it opens
from the side. On the inside I cut a piece of lighter colored paper so I would be able
to write a personal message to each of the ladies. A little faux stitching to finish it off.
