Simple? I tried! Book Page Challenge



Hello Crafty Friends!

I am back with a quick share for my Desgn Team over at Use Your Stuff!

This week the challenge is to use a book page in your project.

CAS Cards are a real challenge for I tried to keep it simple, although it was not required in this challenge.  I am currently away at my Mom's in Vermont.  I wanted to keep it quick and relatively uncomplicated.
I started with an old book and trimmed the page for the background of my card.  I distressed it with CTMH Chocolate ink.  She had a stencil in her stash by Prima.  Like so many of my treasures, it hadn't been used yet, so I christened it for her. :). I used the new Nuvo Embellishment Mousse towards the top for the birds and tree branch.
When I was stenciling, I was trying to be quick about it, and ended up with the mousse squishing under the stencil.  You know what I say... "Not a mistake, just an EMBELLISHMENT OPPORTUNITY!"  I stenciled another page ant tore off the bit to cover up the original mess-up.  I popped it up with foam tap for some interest.  Kind of adds to the vintage and distressed look of the card.
I had a flower left over from my memory board project.  It was made using The Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz with paper in Mom's stash. Lightly sponged with the same Chocolate ink...
Mom had some old tissue paper in a drawer, so I ripped off a tiny piece to make the band along the bottom under the flower.  The sentiment was part of the packaging from the Prima stencil.
I finished it off by sponging the edges to tie it all together.

Be sure to stop over to see the rest of the creations by my talented teamies at Use Your Stuff!

Until next time... HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!
