I finally had a chance to play along with this week's Papertrey Make It Monday Challenge. The kids and I along with friends spent all day at Paramount's Kings Dominion on Wednesday! I spent the better part of Thursday washing clothes and equalizing my equilibrium! Bahahaha! Can you believe Kings Dominion is Celebrating 40 years? I actually remember going when it was new. Took in a show that was a walk down memory lane. Do you remember the singing mushrooms? I am not sure which concerns me more....the fact that I went to a show(I keep telling myself it was because it was hot and the theater had air conditioning), the fact I enjoyed the show, or the fact it has been 40 years and I remembered it all! Good grief!
Anyway, for this week's Papertrey MIM Challenge we are to do pop up die cuts! After looking at this week's Retro Sketch, I thought why not just use the whole hexagon cover plate! Once it came together I actually like the look of portions cut out and portions popped up. I did do it with pop ups from the bottom to the top, but liked the vertical look better. I am playing along with this week's Colour Me Challenge as well. Just love these colors! I stamped the eggplant/purple color using the PTI large houndstooth print background in Ranger Watermark ink. I then used the the mini hexagon set and stamped the pieces using watermark ink onto the aqua mist die cut card stock. I assembled the in laid portions to mimic the sketch with solids at the bottom.
I added the "hello" die cut which I cut three times and glued on top of each other for added thickness. I added some loose thread to behind sentiment and literally just hung it on the cut out hexagon shapes. I did add a few drops of glue. The little bow was cut out using the hydrangea die set in vellum twice. I rolled the edges a bit and fastened to card with glue dot and added some sequins throughout for some sparkle, of course. I love the way it turned out. I am playing along with this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge: Let's Be Clear! Acetate or vellum as well as The Catered Crop: For a Friend,Virginia's die cut Challenge and Simons Monday Challenge to start from scratch!
Moxie Fab has a "Wonderful Words Challenge"
I am also using these other products on my card. TomBow Mono Aqua Liquid glue, and Watermark/Resist Ink Pad & re-inker from Ranger.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
