I'm not totally in love with this card I made for the Papertrey Ink 'Make it Monday' challenge - Vellum Sentiment Strip:
For starters, it's not my usual style - I had a totally different card in mind when I began to put it together.
Ok, so the challenge over at Capture the Moment was to use a vellum sentiment strip - mine is probably the 'shortest' sentiment strip!!! I used a pretty tag stamp and then stamped a PTI sentiment from the 'On my Couch' stamp set by Lisa Johnson for PTI. I had no vellum so I had to raid my baking press for greaseproof paper - boy was this difficult to work with cos it's so flimsy!!
The 'let's chat' background was created using a square of baking parchment scrunched up, straightened out and distressed using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment lots of times in different directions. I finished off with four stamped flowers coloured with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, a ring of tiny black punched flowers, a couple of punched borders and a gold ribbon.
I think the card is 'growing on me' the more I look at it. Can't wait to see what tomorrow's Make it Monday challenge will be!!
