I wanted to play along with this challenge from Moxie Fab World ... but can you believe that I do not own any houndstooth paper or stamps!! I looked thinking surely I have something ... but no I have nothing! So I had to improvise.
I focused on the green (although a much yellow-er green than the color in the inspiration photo) and the brooch....
I added a pattern similar to houndstooth on my green designer paper using Versamark ink. I kept the rest of the card clean and simple to focus on the embellishment and sentiment. I stamped the bird image (Memory Box) and then cut out the paper to be just smaller than the frame. Once the image was adhered, I filled the frame with Glossy Accents to mimic a brooch.
I adore that cream coloured lace below the sentiment strip ... found it at the Dollar Store for "a dollar!".
Okay, so that was a stretch for me .. but fun just the same!!
Thanks for dropping by.
