Welcome to a shiny new challenge here on A Passion for Papertrey!
For this challenge we want to see you get busy with embellishments – three different embellishments to be precise. An embellishment is simply an item that’s added to provide interest to a design. Don’t worry, we’re not going to be strict on the definition of what counts as an embellishment and what doesn’t – but think of things like ribbon, pearls, gems, sequins, die-cuts, buttons etc…Oh, and don’t limit yourself to cards – any creative project will count!
You won’t be surprised to see that I opted to create a card for this challenge. I was a little daunted by three different embellishments but cheated thought a little bit outside the box and combined three embellishments to create one larger embellishment:
So I used a stamped and die-cut star, a button, and some twine for my embellishments that when combined make a little star embellishment. Easy peasy and great for those of us that edge towards a clean and simple style of card making. *wink*
Over to Caryn…
Hmm, this one didn’t turn out to be as simple a task as I first thought! I am actually pretty pleased with the result although it is a tad busier than my usual style!! My embellishments are gems, pearls and ruffle ribbon!! Very girly don’t you think???!
Our lovely Kate is very busy moving/unpacking boxes at the moment – we don’t envy her that task! But she’ll be back for the next challenge. 🙂
We hope you get a chance to join in and show us what you can do with embellishments. Have a look here for all the challenge deets. The challenge closes at 9am on Monday August 12th and one randomly selected peep will win a $5 PTI gift certificate!
