Fiber Challenge (CaardVarks)


Fiber is an embellishment that I rarely if ever use....what do you do with it!!!Well when I read the challenge at CaardVarks, my mouth twitched. ..like a kid who has to eat broccoli. *smile* Then a bell went off in my head...use your kid stamps for this one! I used the Inkadinkado Stamp and stamped the image twice. I wanted the scene to be happy and playful. On this card, the images are playing and jumping rope. The ropes are pieces of fiber and I used wooden beads for the handles. I also used fiber at the top of the card. I also used ribbon and buttons to fill-in the empty spaces on the card.


cardstock: Bazzill and Papertrey white
inks: Brilliance-Coffee Bean and Palette-Violete
stamps: Inkadinkado (Me and My Big Ideas), Studio G and Hero Arts
ribbon: scrap stash
buttons: scrap stash
fibers: Come from a kit, Club Scrap. (the beads come from Club Scrap also)
H2O pencils and Stickles and pop dots used.
