Another challenge has started at Totally Gorjuss: String. There are so many ways to use string on a project and I cannot wait to see what everyone shares!
For my card I used another LaBlanche stamp. (There is quite a bit of pretty detail in the stamp image so I made the photo of the card larger for your viewing ease.) This is also a stamp that I have never used but this one will definitely be used again. What a lovely image! I stamped it on watercolor paper and used TH inks to color in the image. For the sky I used two different blue chalks. The image was then die cut using Spellbinders die Decorative Labels Twenty Eight. Two Cheery Lynn French Pastry doilies were laced under the image. Graphic 45 French Country paper was cut using Spellbinders 5x7 Enchanted Labels and another sheet of French Country (stripes) was placed under the die cut. All of the paper was assembled to a Kraft paper base.
Crinkle ribbon and blue string were wrapped around the card front as shown. I picked three twigs from my evergreen tree and glued it under my bow. A metal button and more blue string was adhered to the bow.
I hope to see your string card at Totally Gorjuss! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
