What do you get when you combine some awesome scraps with a card base and a stamp? A really awesome card!
I had this scrap of DSP from a previous project laying around on my table. At the time I was trying to use the ink pad directly onto the paper to get a nice smooth blend of color from lightest to darkest. Well the paper kept slipping or I dropped the ink pad and it tool three tries to get what I was looking for. I was frustrated and tossed the "bad" ones aside.
Well a couple weeks later after I got over my frustration I found these again on my work table when I realized how cool they looked. It's amazing what a few days without looking at something can do huh?
The chevron piece is actually a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper. I was trying to get as many chevrons as possible out of this one strip and the remaining scrap that I would normally toss looked really neat so I combined those two pieces that were headed for the trash with a few more pieces and a greeting to make this fun card.
The greeting from Happy Day was stamped onto the DSP in Stazon ink. I used 2-Way Glue Pen to glue the chevron piece onto the left side of the DSP. That layer was glued onto a slightly larger piece of Night of navy card stock. Then that panel was added onto the Smoky Slate card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.
Have you made anything lately from something that would have otherwise been thrown in the trash?
