It’s Thursday, and I am just getting around to making my card for the MOJO Monday layout challenge. You know I love a challenge, but it’s been a very busy week.
Today’s layout comes from Carole Burrage:
The minute I saw this layout, I knew I wanted to play around with the Artistic Etchings stamp set. This was my opportunity to really do something cool with all the vintage images in this set. I envisioned tattered edges, lots of layers, intentional ink stains, bulky ribbons…vintage, vintage, vintage! OK, so I never got there, but I really like the way this turned out:
I played around with a piece of vanilla cardstock I had sitting around (I knew in advance I would want to use black, gray and white. BUT, once I got a peek of the vanilla against the black and gray, I was in love. I like when things turn out different from what I planned.
- Use the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to punch even holes for brads. I love the look of a paper-pierced project. The piercing pack can also be used, though, to lineup the brads on a project. To create the three evenly placed brads at the base of my project, I punched every other hole on the grid of one sheet.
