Seasonal Nature Traveling Sojourn Kit for CKCB November challenge:
Reveal photo showcasing all 3 modern cards=
Card #1 using the zig-zag background paper=
Card #2 using the vibrant floral for the background=
Card #3 using the vibrant tone on tone dot print paper for the background=
a. all three use the same mauve pink square-shaped base
b. all three use the same bold blue cardstock for tag base
c. all three use a rainbow forgery thank you banner image (it's like an optical illusion with the paper design and the stamp design!)
d. all three use a strip of the rainbow forgery Ikat print paper
e. all three use a strip of bright bubble gum pink cardstock
f. all three use star graphic designer border tape (used for newspapers and newsletters before digital technology)
g. all three have star stickers, just in differing amounts, colors, and/or type
Before pics-- 2 of 4 forgeries made a few days ago for this November kit in order to copy cat rainbow embellishments from the Citrus Twist curate kit that is our CKC prompt for the month
From the stamped thank you banner images seen above, 3 were used for this blog posted project.
From the Ikat patterned paper that I added rainbow spectrum to I only cut a 1/2" strip off the long left side and then divided it into 3 different lengths to use for the tags/cards.
Background papers for the cards--I used one section of the zig-zag patterned paper, one of the vibrant floral seen in the bottom right corner in this next pic, and the third card has one section from the tonal red with pink small dot print paper seen under the gold foil on the left pile.
The driving force behind the rainbow embellishments came from the chosen inspirational kit from Citrus Twist called "Little Things" released October 2018 and picked by Master Forger Lisa for CKC blog's November kit to counterfeit: https://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/11/november-2018-forgery-on-fourth.html
Is this starting to make sense? In the above photo which is a combination of the papers and embellishments you can see a pastel hued rainbow acrylic embellishment, puffy hearts in a rainbow assortment of hues, tasseled type bows in 4 hues, and tiny puffy style stickers in a variety of colors as well as a star-studded patterned paper in the upper right corner.
The cards featured in this post have only a token nod to nature with the stars and rainbow coloring and one background floral. I've styled them very modern which seems to clash when you see the some of the other photos. I think the problem is that I should have done more pre-planning of projects before pulling papers from inventory. I've pulled items three different times this week and each time the focus has either been for rainbow, hearts and stars, or for weather/travel (which hasn't been shown yet). At this point I'm not sure if I will take time to edit. I think I'm going to concentrate on getting lots of scrapbook layouts made as well as thank you's and Thanksgiving/harvest season cards made and mailed. Let's keep this creative mojo going!
