BBTB2 Challenge. The Divine Ms. Carole, she has chosen for us this week and the object of her affection is Vacation. Aw, the August wonderlust, the desire to get away to cooler regions, cool water, lapping waves, breezes off the water that ease the heart and soul. So if I were going off, I would be going to the water, but I am not, but I can dream can't I?
My card this week is 6"X6". I wanted this card to be a little "Steam Punk" and a little "Art Decco". So my background paper is vintagy and was printed from a Silhouette pattern, I then took a "Crafter's Workshop" Cogs and wheels stencil and airbrushed onto the pattern paper to give it even more depth.
The River boat and compass (I did not like how the directions (N,S,E,W)came out on the compass, so I covered with small white dots and used teeeny tiny rub-ons from a QK rub-on set), were cut with "My World" Cricut Cart, the water was done with "Life is a Beach" all done in black. The cogs were cut into metal sheets with a "Tim Holtz" die. "Take Me Away" was welded and cut with the Silhouette.
The compass was colored with Copic markers. Please come join in on our fun, remember your Challenge focus piece must be a Cricut cut, the rules are all posted at the top of the BBTB2 Challenge site, this week will initiate a little change on our blog site, instead of the challenge running for two weeks, we will be going to a one week run for our challenges, please see the site for more details. Thanks for visiting today and have a FAB week. Hugs
