QKD Awesome Color Challenge!!

Hey All!!

Welcome to this week's QKD fantastic color challenge!


My first thought when we were issued our challenges was....high school. As these were my high school colors!!

BUT FIRST - If you came here via the WIS blog then you are on the right track...if not start HERE so you don't miss any of the fun!!!

So naturally I gravitated towards the football field-ish paper in the background, the pin with the beads on them that we used to wear on our sneakers, "baseball jerseys"...usually airbrushed with Cape Cod or Hyannis. Said shirt may even have had fringe cut into it...perhaps with pony beads hanging off of the fringe? Hmmmm?? Anyone??? Anyone?? Bueller???
My card starts off with black cardstock as the base. Followed by mattes of lighter green, ivory, light green DP respectively.I stamped my main image from the QKD Jerseys Set along with the word Vamp from the set to adorn the tshirt. I stamped in Colorbox Olive Green and heat set with clear embossing powder. I then traced over the V in Vamp with my Quickie Glue Pen and coated it with green glitter.

Once dry, I stitched this to the main panel, now tied with green Swiss dot ribbon in a neat bow and adorned with a large safety pin threaded with beads that say 'DAMN!', down using a zig zag stitch.

Before adhering this to the card base I inked up some fray from a sheet of notebook paper and added that at the bottom for extra texture and dimension.
Thanks for visiting today!!!
