This week's challenge at Less is More is a recipe challenge and we have been asked to create a card using string or twine. I have a lot of twine, all different colors of twine, I just love the stuff. Here's my card:
I used a Kaisercarft stamp, a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, some watercolor pencils and some pretty purple twine. Oh yes, I also put a little stickles on the flowers but it's hard to see in this photo.
The Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World this week is called "Apache Tears". I had never heard of chevrons being referred to as Apache tears before. When I mentioned this to my husband, he told me the name came about during the 1800's when the calvery patrols came out west to engage in war with the Apaches; the calvery patrols wore chevrons on their uniforms.
Although somewhat disturbing (sad tears, not happy tears), I learned something new today. I guess I need to read more Louis La Amore. Anyway, here is the inspiration photo for the Tuesday Trigger:
And here is my card. I chose to change the pattern from chevrons to squares staying as close to the color pallate as I could:
The squares are from a Bo Bunny geometric patterns stamp set and the sentiment and butterflies are Stampin Up.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Now hop on over to the book store and get a Louis La Amore book. I'll be taking one from Mike's book stash and will start it later today :)
Hi - I have been a busy bee lately and have neglected my blog terribly. Well, that's over now and I'll be back soon with some posts. Here's a Halloween / Birthday card I made for my friend, Therese's birthday :)
