This is for the October 29 Speedy the Cat's Challenge of Week 79 .. using scraps only. (Here is the website)
I opted to try something I'd never tried before...a tri-fold shutter card. ONCE I figured out how to score, cut and fold the next challenge was how to lay it out. Since the challenge was to use scraps only this worked like a charm for the backgrounds as I had plenty of Fall scraps in my scrap box! I measured and cut and and can think of some modifications I will do in the future...but finally got it laid out. The stamps were from Mark's Finest...Country Thanksgiving. This is a great set with LOTS of possibilities in combining stamps. I stamped with Tuxedo Black and then used Tangelo and Dandelion Memento to sponge backgrounds with. Colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. I used the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped rectangles, and Eyelet Squares. The sentiments were die cut with Ribbon Tags Trio 2, Fancy Tags Three and Ribbon Banners all by Spellbinders.
After I laid out the different sentiments and images, I filled in the rest of the spots with embellishments by Recollections and some bling, ribbon and a pin from Mark's Finest.
Hope you will join us for the challenge this week and see what kind of scraps you can find in your box! Happy searching ... and what a GREAT way to clean out that box!
