*WooHoo! I was a Rashup Glamette with this card*
Oh my! I can't believe I'm writing a new post. And it's about a card I've created. Will wonders never cease? It's been a busy year. So much travelling and other family stuff. It's time to get back to what I love: creating cards and other projects.
This one is all about inlaid die-cuts. I love the effect that one gets with this technique but it's fussy work. Especially since I decided to use my spider web die and had to ensure that none of the seeminly thousands of pieces became lost. Still, even though I cursed the card several times, the finished spider web inlay is so effective that I've made peace with it.
I've used a retired piece of Designer Paper into which to inlay my spider web. That skull and faintly printed paper is so creepy and yet such a piece of art. I love it and have been hanging onto it, waiting for just the right project. The Friday Mashup challenge turned out to be that project.
*Create a project with the Sketch
*Create a project with Inlaid Die Cutting
*or Mash it Up! and create a project with the Sketch and inlaid die cutting
I chose to mash it up. You'll see that my card combines the sketch with the inlaid die-cutting. My colours are Basic Black, Tangelo Twist, Basic White and Wild Wasabi. You can see from the close-up photo that I've inlaid the die-cut spider's web as well as the Wild Wasabi banner. If you look closely, you'll see that I've also inlaid each of the die-cut letters into the banners. The Tangelo Twist banner is mounted on dimensionals, the Basic Black banner is added with adhesive and the Wild Wasabi banner is inlaid just for a variation in texture.
For fun I also die-cut several spiders from a scrap of Chalkboard black paper. I wanted the extreme black of that paper to make those spiders "pop" against the card. A couple are mounted on glue dots while the others are mounted on dimensionals.
I hope you'll check out the other cards at the Friday Mashap this week. I've also put my name in for the Design Team. Wish me luck.
