Crafty Catwalk Challenge is to "use what ya got" in the way of designer paper, take inspiration from Miu Miu's sunglasses and use your designer paper to frame the focal image on your project. It took me a while to come up with something, but as I was looking through some retired SU Christmas DSP for something red and white, I found the paper I wanted to use and my creation came together. Here is what I came up with:
Taylored Expressions Buttercream Choice Cardstock and colored it with Copics. I cut the image out with Nestabillities Labels Thirteen, embossed it, and used a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink to add color around the edges. I stamped the settiment from A Cardinal Christmas using VersaFine Onyx Black ink on the Buttercream card stock, punched it out with the Modern Label punch and shaded the edges. I added a piece of Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain ribbon toward the bottom, placed the sentiment on top and finished it off with an Antique brad. Please go on over to the Crafty Catwalk and give their challenges a whirl! They are lots of fun!
