Yay, it's Friday! It's also time for a new challenge over at Tag, You're It!
Our Muse this time is the wonderful Carol Mayne
. I pieced together a Paper Smooches vacuum cleaner that didn't end up on a card, but I still wanted to use it. I closely followed Carol's design, because it was so perfect for it! Here's Carol's inspiring card:
Here's my CASE:
I followed a similar color palette, including the rich colors blended on Carol's
tag, and even used a smaller version of her tag shape. I stenciled the card base with a pink background, and then stenciled with multi-colored dots to reflect the dotted paper on the vacuum. I love the open space Carol left on her tag which gives the full focus to the shiny dragonfly, and a sentiment that pairs with it beautifully. Originally, I masked the sentiment section to look like suction underneath the vacuum cleaner, but then my husband pointed out that it looks like a path made by the vacuum, and then the vacuum turned to the left. Okay, I see it! Either way, it's a fun card to give to a friend going through a rough patch.
