Hide and Go Seek
It is time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and this one is called Hide and Go Seek. We want you to make a vintage or shabby chic project with a hidden element. Make sure you mention what your hidden element is in your post.
Here is my hidden element:
My husband and I recently went on a two-week road trip to the US and in addition to some sightseeing we visited with some of my crafty friends along the way. We spent a week in Virginia with the lovely Patti Painter and her husband and while there Patti and I managed to get a couple of crafting sessions in. I had taken some of the elements for this card with me but also used some of Patti's supplies, such as her die set, Spectrum Noirs (a.k.a. her magic markers according to her husband - lol) and rubber stamps. We also had dinner and spent a fun evening in Richmond, Virginia with Cheryl Grant of Sassy Cheryl's Stamps and spent a fabulous weekend in Maryland with Ann English and her husband. Patti and Ann have been on design teams with me and I must say - my crafting friends are the best.
I started with some Recollections card stock for the blank. Then I added some Pink Paislee papers from the Queen Bee collection for the background, distressed them with my scissors and sponged them with some Black Soot Distress Ink from Ranger. I cut the large horizontal die cut from more of the Pink Paislee paper using Spellbinders Labels 18 die.
The image die is cut from white card stock using the same die set. Next I stamped the Lemon Stamp from Stampin Up using Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger and coloured it with Patti's Spectrum Noirs (my first effort but I think it is fine considering I am a Prismacolor gal).
I made a loopy bow from black satin ribbon that I picked up at Fabricland and added a Recollections polka dot button to it. The large die has some Recollections pearl stickers added and is popped up with foam dots. The hidden sentiment is from Stampin Up and has been stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink on a hand cut tag and then sponged with some Black Soot DI. The narrow yellow ribbon came from my stash.
Finally I added some black lace that came from an outlet store in Fancy Gap, VA and a computer generated sentiment that I hand cut.
