This weeks challenge was sponsored by Sherrod Studios. Kim from Sherrod Studios provided us with these great images from the "Harvest Blessings" stamp set. The challenge from the Creative Belli Blog this week is to use raffia, or twine on your card. Don't forget the basis behind the Belli Blog is to use items you already have in your stamp room, or house. I found some raffia that I had from an old craft project I did when I was teaching Sunday School. Here is what I came up with.
Isn't the pilgrim image adorable?!!!! I colored the image with colored pencils, and added some yellow stickles to the buckles on the shoes and hat. I layered the image onto some yellow CS, to help bring out the yellow on the buckles. The patterned paper I used is some that I purchased from the Target $1 spot awhile back. I used an oval punch to punch the sentiment, and layered it onto a yellow scalloped oval. I used a light blue CS from a mono blue pack I purchased from TAC as my base. I then added some raffia along the bottom, where I normally would have used some ribbon. What a fun thing this raffia is...who knew??? I think it looks great with fall/harvest cards, and hope to use it some more...since I found a whole bunch in the basement. I love the thought of using up things I have laying around. Last I added a couple eyelets to the upper right corner.
Well, that is all I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by the Creative Belli Blog, and play along this week.
