I was at the mall and was walking by a Gymboree store and came to a screeching halt when I saw this cute little girl dress in the display window. I couldn’t tell you what caught my eye but I whipped out my cell phone and took a picture. It was in my “inspiration” stash for a while and when the latest In Colors where introduced this instantly came to mind. This card is all about different types of texture. I remembered I still had the previous version of the Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stacks which included small stripes like the bottom of the skirt. I added textured Whisper White to the top half to give a “crinkly” look and subtle-y elevated the designed. Sometimes a little bit of texture adds the perfect touch to finish a design. I spritzed the sentiment oval with a bit of Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. Oh…….how could I forget!!! I also added just a touch of silver glimmer paper that peeked out from beneath the “waist band” and “bow knot”. The final texture is on the “waist band” and “bow” are the faux suede technique. Take a strip and run it over the edge of you bone folder 3-4 times then rotate 180 degrees and do the same, then flip and repeat process. Keep repeating this until the strip starts to separate. Our fabulous paper allows for this, then start separating at one end pulling apart until you get two separate strips. If it doesn’t come apart easily use the bone folder a few more times to help finish separating.
Remember to keep your eyes open for inspiration any time, any where and if something catches your eye stop and take a quick picture. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just needs to capture that moment. This inspiration happens to be pretty literal but it isn’t always that way, it could be a color combination, shapes, etc!!!
