Whenever I have papercrafting ideas, I jot them down in my journal to try at a later date. Color combos, sketches, or a certain way to use a stamp/embellishment...they all get written down. The only problem with this is that I rarely go back and look at my journal when sitting down to stamp! LOL! Well, this morning I had a few more ideas to add but somehow I got flipping through my previous ideas and was inspired by a particular sketch I had drawn several months ago! I then decided to live on the wild side, and couple the sketch with one of the color combos I've been wanting to try! :-)
The end result is a bit dramatic, but I like it! I have to tell you though, I kept wanting to add ribbon and I think I tried a thousand different ways...but in the end I thought it looked better without. So I settled with a cardstock strip cut to look like ribbon! :-)
I embossed one of the images from Giga Guide Lines three times onto New Leaf cardstock. The Kraft card base measures 3 1/8" x 6 1/2". To finish it off, I added three Moss Rhinestones in the middle of the embossed medallions.
Well, I'm off to correct some schoolwork! I hope you have a wonderful afternoon! ~Laurie
