CR84FN Amour...


I love the colours in this week's CR84FN challenge:

The ribbon, pin cushion and thread made me think of a lovely patchwork quilt for some reason, so I went in that direction and created a patchwork panel with a 1 1/4" square punch and different DSP. Here's the result (you can click on the image for a larger view):

I combined these colours with this Viva la Verve sketch. I made the card slightly larger than a standard A6 card and went with a 7x5" card base so I could fit all the elements on. The heart was stamped with second generation Poppy Parade ink (i.e. stamping once on scrap then stamping a lighter image). I stamped 'Amour' from Artistic Etchings over the top with Early Espresso ink. I'm LOVIN that ribbon with the big bow and a button to finish... can't go wrong with one of those babies!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts, Artistic Etchings
Ink: Pure Poppy, Early Espresso
Paper: mix of various DSPs, Naturals Ivory, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Real Red striped ribbon, linen thread, Crumb Cake button, Soft Suede marker, 1 1/4" square punch, oval nestabilities

Thanks for stopping by!
