Hi and welcome to post to announce the start of a brand new challenge at CUTplorations.
Here is my inspiration card.
My card was based on this month's image below.
My starting point was the shape of the shortbread biscuit along with the colours, but it's all down to you as to what influences your project.
To start I took a panel of white card and got messy with my DOs, DIs and water spray bottle, building up the depth of colour with lots of texture just like the velvet ribbon in the picture.
The biccy reminded me of the new feathers dies, so after the inked panel was dry, I cut a banner and using one of the larger feathers die cut a previously white heat embossed matching feather stamp. On a separate piece of scrap white card, I stamped and embossed with yellow EP the small feather then die cut it with the matching die, adding a little scattered straw DI over the feather. The final feather was cut from vellum after heat embossing the stamped feather. I wrapped some jute twine around the banner and attached the group of die cuts with some more twine and a red button from the stash for a pop of colour. A stamped and heat embossed sentiment from Balloons and Banners completed the purple element of the design.
On a white, A6 top folding base card, I stamped some of the feathers from the set in Memento London Fog, then attached the finished banner.
