Timeless Tuesday...It's in the bag!
Flourishes Betty wants us to use brown grocery bag paper on the card/project. Fun huh? Well I went all out and made some paper flowers out of my brown bag with a Sizzix's die. Decided to go as DD calls it shabby chic. Me shabby?? Me chic?? To clarify that's chic (not sheikh as in Rudy Valentino's sheikh).Don't know if I'm either but I can do a card that way if I want to and so I did.
My card base is kraft, with a mat of ivory, and then some "chic" dp bought at Mike's pad. Didn't show who put it out because I used part of it previously and so the name is gone..sorry people. It's a soft denim colored blue and ivory so I wanted to bring that out in my flower. After cutting the different size flowers I brushed them with denim colored ink that Adirondack puts out. Now for some fun I used the Scor-Pal and did a bit of pleating out of the ivory card stock and then added some crocheted ribbon stuff to give it that vintage look. Guess I need to use some of that on myself to add to my vintage look (mine is wrinkled skin and old age spots) not so classy, me thinks. After I slapped it together I added the little flag sentiment "thank-you" found in the Hello Hyacinth set. Put a few blingers on and I'm through here.So now it's your turn to get a bag (not a live one like me) and see what you can come up with. There's lots of ideas out there, just tune into one of them and give it a go. Oh, and be sure to check out the design team's work...they are listed and linked below.
