Can you tell that I’m having a ball working with these new folders? I neglected the old ones so I’m really excited to have something new to play with and I’ve enjoyed the challenge trying to do something different, not anticipated, with each one. Of all the folders (believe it or not), this one really had me stumped. When you think of houndstooth, you think of dark colors, fall attire, perhaps a masculine flavor. After coloring up a few samples on dark colored paper, I decided to do the houndstooth in pink!! I felt it would be a fair companion to the little boy card I did a couple of days ago.
As with the other samples this week, I decided to use chalks – even for the little girls dress. I wanted the card and images to appear soft and I think that’s an easy order to fill with chalks. Again, for the clean simple look I used Fabriano Acquarello watercolor paper layered with a pink metallic cardstock. I used another Fiskar border to make the top seem like a lacy valance and embellished with small white pearls and finally, ribbon.
Bless you today and through the weekend. I hope you find and embrace joy in your living.
