Ahead of the game this week! (that won't last) as the weather was SO grim there was nothing for it but to stay in and craft. And so to my entry for Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers Challenge this week.
I love the art of origami, especially when it brings more of a 3D element to cards and projects. The sentiment (yes, this is going in the post this week for a reli) was Flitter Glued, the accessories were from a Spellbinders die purchased at Ally Pally (oh, my poor bank balance!!)with an accent touch of Pearlidoodles and if you look really closely you'll see the large die cut border at the bottom is in fact from a sample piece of wallpaper that looks and feels exactly like ruffled fabric!! (amazing what you can pick up at the local DIY store). I also stamped some faux stitching effects down there to add further interest.
The ribbon dress band got a touch of 'Frantage' with various types of embossing powders, a bit more Flittering and a lovely red element that came from... no, that would be telling. Suffice it to say me and the OH got some gorgeous posh choccies for Christmas which have been savoured and rationed!!!
By the way, if you haven't already seen it yet I URGE YOU to check out the STUNNING creations on Julie Short's blog for this challenge and prepare for your jaw to hit the ground... this uber-talented lady takes embossing folders to a whole new level and I am in awe.
OK, that's all for now. See you very soon.
