Designer Challenge Day 4 31-2018

Now it really gets fun!  We get to choose from Theresa's picks for us!  We each are to choose one for Thursday and Friday!  Decisions, decisions!

Here is Sue's pick:

I chose the black fishtail banner on a burlap fishtail banner with white and gold twine. I die cut the “hi” from gold card stock using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Happy Hellos, which I adhered to the black fishtail banner. To further emphasize the gold, I used a Gelly Roll gold pen to add hash marks along the edge of the black fishtail banner. I found some black chevron paper for the background. I cut a 2” x 5.5” strip which was adhered towards the bottom of a natural card. I adhered the banner on an angle to complete the card. ~ Sue

The "Hi" just pops!

Here is my card:

Black and burlap just look masculine to me and I need excuses to make masculine cards - I am such a procrastinator because I have a hard time trying to think what looks masculine!  I started by adding a sentiment from Fiskars using pearl embossing powder.  I tied the burlap tag to a white tag and adhered it to a black card stock panel.  I added the man on a bicycle from my vintage stash.  I then accented with bronze enamel heat set dots.  I used a craft paper card stock base.  I agree with the sentiment!  My joy is to play - in my craft room! ~ Gracie

  1. I just love what different directions the same embellishments take in the hands of you two talented ladies. Great job.
