i formatted the text of the quote in broderbund's printshop and printed it on an inkjet transparency. in retrospect, i really *WISH* i'd used the entire transparency sheet so that the blank edges would've covered the entire top panel. i really should have gone back and re-printed when i realized my mistake, but it was 11pm and i was just ready to wrap it up. ah well. live and learn, eh audrey?!
(patterned paper: echo park, recollections, silver metallic cardstock: the paper company; gem flourishes: want2scrap; ink jet transparency for ink jet printer: 3m; fonts: bohemian typewriter, susie's hand; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, scotch gluestick)
i used this week's lovely and dramatic pink-pink-black-white-grey palette from colour q (#157);
it's difficult to tell from my photograph but on my bottom layer of patterned paper the swirls are light pink and not actually white; whereas the ones on the top layer ARE white. i quite like the way they (and my stragetically clipped pink gem flourishes) all flow together.
speaking of things that are fun and pink and can be as blingy (or non-blingy!) as you like, i heartily invite you to pop in at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and celebrate pink christmas with us! stephanie and i are raising money for the komen fund this fortnight; but also, as we move inexorably closer to the holidays, each card you make now is one less to be stressing over in december, right?! (just sayin!) plus the group dynamic really *IS* inspiring... trust me... more IS merrier, darlings! ♥
