Look Ma, no Ink!!!
Happy Sunday!! It's a good thing the VSN challenge this weekend issued by my friend, Peggysue, was limited to 45 minutes! I set my timer, and I found myself reaching for one more ribbon just as the buzzer buzzed!! The challenge was to make a card using no ink...the idea behind it that you are on a limited diet!! I know all about limited diets, we just recently came off a no-iodine diet at our home. It was part of my husband's thyroid removal treatment and that was a lot bigger challenge than this card. Did you know iodine is in everything?
Anyways, on to the card...I had seen these fan-fold flowers at the bottom of this week's tutorial for a tri-shutter card. I loved the idea of making your own flowers, and so gave it a whirl. Other than the fact my flower just kept popping up like a tiddly-wink every time I tried to tame it down to put the backing on, this was fun! I do like the end result. The only problem I see is there is absolutely no way this will ever fit in an envelope...it is either a box card or hand-delivered type of card! Oh and if you look closely between those two black ribbons, there is a rub-on sentiment, "Make a Wish."
This was also made for today's featured stamper on SCS, VA. Sunshine! She has amazing talent, and gave me the color inspiration for my creation!
So the fan fold technique is here:
Just in case you feel like playing tiddly-winks!!
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday, and thanks for stopping by!! Could you please do me a favor before you leave and sign my guest book at the bottom of the page?? I somehow lost the first one, don't know how that happened! But sure would love to see you here!
