Morning crafters! It's Monday again, my goodness the weeks seem to whizz by and of course the weekends go even quicker don't they? It was a hot and sticky weekend here, so I didn't get tons of crafting done, it was just too sticky, but luckily for me I made this card last week for a friend who was leaving our department (though she's still working in the hospital and will be just a corridor or so away from where my new office is, which is nice :)
Anyway....our theme at La-La Land this week is Twine/String, so we needed to incorporate twine or string somewhere on our project. Now I'll say straight away that I don't use an awful lot of the stuff. I have it in a few colours, but I'm really not very adventurous with it, and the same holds true for my card today lol!
I used the following items from La-La Land Crafts
Here's what I made
Now unfortunately I don't have many 'office' themed bits. I did have these lovely Prima papers Stationer's Desk and so I went with an old fasioned office feel. I used the Steampunk Border and Corner could pass for typewriter parts, and I had some of these lovely Tim Holtz pen nibs in my stash. I used one of the Stitched Tabs dies to create 'files' and sat Marci in a Postage Stamp frame. I stamped one tab with a sentiment from LotV and for the other tab I cut her name with a Memory Box Alphabet die.
I coloured Marci with my Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E19, E08, E09
Oufit and Phone: R35, R46, R59, W9, W7, W5, W2, W0
The black lace, red polka dot ribbon and black button twine are from The Ribbon Girl as are the rolled roses. All other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used a crochet lace with velvet ribbon trim
Everything is edged with Black Soot DI and I stitched my layers with Gutterman Top Stitch thread.
The inside I decorated to complement the front.
Well that's all from me for today, do pop along to the blog to look at the rest of the design team's work, they're pretty amazing I can tell you.
Bye for now and I'll see you again tomorrow for my Dies to Die for inspiration post and you can see how I've been playing with Inktense Pencils.
Have fun! : ) x x
