Check out this amazing paper collection from Alexandra Renke here in Deutschland. It's all about stones. Love it. Got me some. Had to make some invitations with it. (If you don't know what's up with me and my invitations, you can find out here.)
Took my new PP, my Dieversions die and these sketches and went to town.
|Clean and Simple #295|
|Feeling Sketchy #93|
|Deconstructed Sketches # 156|
I'm also hooking these up at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where it's all about Friends. If we didn't have 'em, I wouldn't be making all these invites!
I love the speech bubble sketch, but had to work with my "party time" circle. So this happened. Oh well.
Now if I had been clever, I would have taken a closer look at my PPs for guidance on the placement of the circles on the first card. Don't ya love the "flow" of the images on this next card. And, well, I had to tweak the sketch a bit to get my die cut nestled into the "flow".
Here's a closeup so you can see the small pattern stamped in Delicata gold on the vellum backing the die cut. Which is dark gray, BTW. Looks blue here :(
On the last card I stayed pretty true to the sketch. Even kept the banner! But mine looks kinda not so good. The elements are too stretched out. Ugh.
But I love these papers. And the fact that I've only five more invites to go! I'm guessing my folks would probably like these best - they've always been great fans of greige. The house I grew up in was painted "Adobe Gray" (no clue why I still know that). Just googled it and it's all about software today. Proof that I'm getting old ;)
Thanks for visiting. I'm off to watch some soccer -go team USA- if I don't fall asleep on the couch!
