Monday, August 31, 2009 Day 184 - Movie Monday
I'm sure I've seen Pretty In Pink, but I couldn't even begin to say how long ago it was. I do know my daughter Kim watched Breakfast Club a lot! She made this card for this challenge to honor the late John Hughes and it is awesome. Check it out!
I was inspired to make this card by combining 4 challenges for this week.
1. MOJO102 sketch challenge. A great sketch but I made the circle so big I had a hard time fitting the sketch together.
2. There's Magic In the Air. Magical Monday challenge to use the free Gigi on a Tube digi stamp and to use paper piecing. OK, I have trouble with names so I renamed it Miss Piggy! Nina included a tutorial link for paper piecing. Not one of my best techniques, but this is one card I will share that I used it on.
3. TLC236 challenge at Splitcoast to try a new technique which is to make a Masked Frame. If you look closely (click pic to enlarge) you will see that Miss Piggy and frame is completed on one layer. Lynn's explanation of how to do this is easy to follow. I popped up the umbrella for dimension
4. Day 184 - Movie Monday at 365 Cards to make a card Pretty In Pink!
Well, when I saw the Gigi on the Tube digi stamp and the title, Pretty In Pink, stuck in my head, they crashed together and turned into a card with Miss Piggy on it! I used the new SU! In Color Melon Mambo ink and CS. Black Accents and cuttlebug folder bubbles to finish it off. I think this is a good card to give to DH for a belated anniversary card. Or, I could save it till next August and just hope I remember it!
OK, off to get ready for work. Have a great day!
