This weeks challenge ... Challenge # 15 Cabinet Card Pocket is found on page 38 in your book.
Omg ... this is fun !
I chose Tim's Found Relatives as my spring board ... I love these ... just so much fun!
I used my Wallflower Paper ( both the regular and the Vellum) ... I so love that collection; Thrift shop Ephemera (regular and vellum) ;Remnant Rubs Life Quotes, Botanical, Numbers, and Elements... LOL I love remnant rubs too; and I used Industrious Stickers and tissue tape. Oh I got so excited I forgot to tell you I used baubles, adornment arrows, mirrored stars, heart charms, word band, gem clip ,wire pin , linen ribbon and crinkle ribbon and my cabinet card.
One of the things I LOVE about the challenges is that I USE my TIM STASH !!
I used vintage photo to distress my cabinet card, I attached my photo to a piece of wallflower paper and embellished it by adding various vellum ephemera, using the remnant rubs I embellished some of those pieces. I colorized my word band and the arrow using bundled sage distress paint.
I distressed my tag using antique linen, old paper, vintage photo and crushed olive distressing ink. I layered it with a piece of vellum cut from wallflower paper and added sentiment from my Words For Thought Stamp set, trimmed it with industrial sticker borders and corner... added some additional verb age using the remnant rubs, and then attached a ticket using my tiny attacher.
I added crinkle ribbon that I colorized using barn door, picked raspberry and Victorian velvet distress stains.
I so hope you enjoyed my cabinet card pocket as much as I did . Better yet go do one, you've got plenty of time ! Don't forget to show the crew some love ! See you again soon :)
