Sigh sigh sigh, I blogged only once in August, how very sad - lets hope September is better.
So I’m kicking this month off with a Family Challenge. Seeing how I keep picking up paint chips here and there on my travels (mainly because I find they somehow magically have “that shade” I need on some projects) - I figured to intentionally challenge myself and family members Nina and Judy to come up with something nifty too. The only perimeter I set is we incorporate a paint chip into the mix.
I chose this feather cut (from the Silhouette Store’s “feathers” set) and a paint chip from Behr - 420F- 4 (Sagey) is the top colour and it has three other shades below. Next I trimmed my paint chip into it’s coloured sections because originally there was white space in between each hue. I used some scotch tape to hold the pieces together. I created an offset in my Silhouette software and then plunked the feather atop.
I wanted my card to reflect the entire spectrum of my chosen paint chip so I kept my background cardstock very simple. I used the same cardstock and embossed it to add interest to the front, and left a strip open on the card face so I could stamp a sentiment. I embossed the sentiment to include some texture into this area of my card. I used some foam tape to bump out the feather as the feature of my creation.
I thought I was done. Something missing.
Ahhhh - used a small strip leftover from my feather cut, reversed the color sequence and tacked it to the bottom panel, this seemed to have grounded it.
