Waltzingmouse Stamps is having a belated Blog party, my thoughts go out to Claire's recent loss. While in theory I could've made a sympathy card, I opted for more of a celebration. Let's just say my project today took on multiple different forms before finally deciding on its mission in life. If you scroll back through some of my other posts you'll see I've been playing with MFT wine dies, so since my desk is a disaster, there are extra die cuts floating around (or buried beneath huge piles of scraps). So in the end I made an wedding card. The wine label uses a felt flower for the hop and the card has a felt chevron strip. I'm also going to play along with the Let's Get Trendy Now and Moxie Fab World Doilies and Lace challenges, I ran my doily through both antique linen and vintage photo to give it a bit of a distressed look. It's hard to tell on the wine label, but I inked up a few of the decorative accents from WMS Very Vintage Label No 1 in antique linen to give a bit of a background.
I tried, unsuccessfully to figure out how I could incorporate the hop and this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge together. So in the end I opted to try a one layer card (b/c sometimes when I get overwhelmed by layers and choices it's a good exercise to just remove them all). I've been wanting to play along with the Moxie Fab World postal challenge, so thankfully I've finally got out my WPlus9 and PTI postage stamps. I've used WMS Frame It sentiment and then if you look closely you'll see WMS Big Bloom hiding in there too.
