The third challenge this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog is to “play dress up.” That is to say: “You can disguise [your project] with distressing, paint or ink. Go incognito with hidden journaling, a mask or stencils. Add a little dazzle with stitching, bling or sequins. Just make sure you include that extra special something to take your project from plain to fancy!”
Here’s my card for the challenge. I have dressed it up with a ribbon sash, a touch of gold glitter in a circle under the button and gold Smooch ink accents on the butterfly. You will also notice that the die-cut stamped sentiment is layered. When you have a die to match your stamp set, you might as well make doubles and stack them from more volume – like adding a petticoat. Then you can tuck other elements in between as well.
Buttons are almost always I how “dress” my cards. This second card has a base patterned paper of lace doilies, lots of layers and buttons sewn on for emphasis. How is that for dressing it up?
