Embellish Color Trends Challenge using Trim...

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Hello, all!! Wow...it's been more than a week since I've been able to post! That's too long!! I've been working on a few different things, but just got this one completed for the Embellish Challenge using trim and these colors... I have made up a wedding card with a little gown made from a piece of vintage lace (thanks to my friend, Susan! And, yes...it was almost painful to cut into this small but beautiful piece!) I stamped a dress form image (Girls' Paperie) to cut and create a little dress template from creme cardstock. Ran a small piece of the lace through my sticker maker and stuck it to the template, then trimmed the excess away. I gave the dress a little portrait collar with a tiny piece of chiffon. Then after embossing, cutting and edging (inking) another dress form image, I added the dress to it... I used some trim to create a little rug to stand the form on. It was some old two-toned tatting (have to thank Susan AGAIN!!) that was already made to be used for a circular shape, so it was very easy to circle it around to create the rug. A little bridal bouquet was made from some tiny creme posies that I inked up slightly with So Saffron ink (SU) and placed on the rug. I had some narrow creme silk ribbon from a previous hobby that I tinted with Ripe Avocado ink...perfect size to tie a tiny bow around the mini bouquet! I tried to keep the rest of the card fairly simple for the trims and textures to shine. Under the rug is a piece of pale yellow velvet ribbon that I variegated a little with Ripe Avocado and Spring Moss ink. (I just loved all the velvet trim the designers were able to incorporate from the sponsor this week! So lush!!) Anyway--I think I've covered the details... (That rug looks a little large in the photo, but there ain't no turnin' back now!!!) I finished it all off with a Papertrey border die and sentiment. Hope you like it! It was a fun little design!! I want to thank the DT for their inspiration once again this week. I found too many beautiful and surprising details to list. I think this has been one of my favorites so far! They took trims to a whole new level!! So glad you could stop by today! Hope you have a great one! Geri
