The Card Concept #61: Washi Meets...{Pretty In Pink}

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept - {Pretty in Pink}

Here's the gorgeous photo inspiration:

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.


Here's my mixed media card, inspired by the typewriter and colors:

I tore a piece of patterned paper and adhered it on card...can you see some of the typewriters (or parts of it, anyway...)?

I trimmed a white panel and distressed the edges. I mixed All-Purpose Ink with water on my craft mat and smooshed the panel down, a coulpe of times. Happy with the result, I placed the panel on my table, put a sheet of dried wet wipe on and placed a book on top to flatten the panel. This gave my panel an interesting texture...maybe if you click on the photo, you might be able to see it...
After it dried, I embossed the panel, added washi tape (CTMH) and adhered on card.
I stamped typewriter (CTMH) twice and I cut the second generation image out. Then, I stamped the sentiment in brown.
I adhered it on card and added a flower with a sequins in the center.
