The Wrinkly Paper


Hah! The wrinkly paper. That makes me laugh. One of my boys saw this card and told me he like it. Curious, I asked him why? His response, "Well, I like all that wrinkly old paper with the holes all over it. And the colors too, Mama." Ahh, a boy after my own heart.
Here's another go for Moxie Fab World Challenge: Diggin' on Doilies & Lace Challenge (mainly because I have this fascination with attempting to make the doilies modern and probably because the doilies came in a pack of 30...) For these, I sponged each of four with their respective ink colors and then spritzed with water. I was excited to see that the final result was a nice bright and blended look. I placed the four cropped doilies in a row and topped it with the black satin bow and fancy rub-on letters-I think the black grounds the colors and the clean and simple design is pretty darn sophisticated.

Supplies Used: SU Whisper White Cardstock, SU Cameo Coral, Old Olive, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie Inks, SU Black Satin Ribbon, Making Memories Rub On Alphabet in Beach, Mini Mister
