this week's theme at the city crafter challenge blog is seeing stars...so i managed to work one or two (or 27!) of those into my design; i was also MASSIVELY inspired by the gorgeously clean and simple look of this card amy tsuruta made using last week's sketch from skipping stone designs. (clearly my card is not clean or simple...but we cannot blame amy for that, eh?!)
just in case 90,000 volts of PURE COLOR were not enough, i decided to amp up the texture, as well: i've got machine stitching, fabric paper, layers of foam tape, and hand stitching...done with both ordinary smooth floss and some awesome metallic thread, too!
ok, so the result is a bit intense, but i think i kind of love it. i just have to remember to send it to someone with an excellent pair of sunglasses!!! :)
