June ILWS Design Team

Well, here are two of my submissions to the June edition of the ILWS Design Team Challenges and Gallery.

The first is for the "stitching - real or faux" challenge.

I tore strips of black and white cardstock, and strips of the night and day DSP, then layered them, curled them with my fingers, and tore into the curled edge. I then added a strip of printed black grosgrain ribbon from my stash, and layered it all ontop of a piece of the dotted transparency that comes in the night and day DSP pack. The stitching comes into effect along the top. This is how I attached it all to the card base! Stitched it all together with black thread and my sewing machine!

This second card is based on the inspiration piece (here).

Very simple card, with clean lines. I started with a Kraft base, and took a strip of perfect plum DSP and tore one edge and adhered to the card base. I then took a second bit of Kraft cardstock, and tore an edge, and stamped my image onto it. I coloured my image with elegant eggplant and old olive markers. Then stamped my greeting with eggplant as well.

I then decided it needed a bit of sparkle to really make the plum strip of DSP stand out more, so I took my two way glue pen and ran it down the torn edges, and sprinkled on the dazzling diamonds to make it really....... well...... dazzle!

I hope you enjoy, and please do take a look at the ILWS DT challenges here!
