Craft Roulette #127: Pretend Strips of Wintery Patterns!

I had a little Friday Night FUNN with Mary at Craft Roulette last week! That show is a blast. Challenges are my favorite way to create, which is why I love the daily Splitcoast challenges so much. There's no such thing as a creative rut if you have a challenge available.

So my parameters this time were super interesting:
  • Pretend
  • Paper Strips
  • Colors of Winter
  • Patterned Paper
I decided on books for the pretend element - because there's no escape like an escape into a book. I'm also pretending cats can read. Who am I to say they can't??

For the Paper Strips & Patterned Paper, I chose book pages. I cut them in strips and ink blended them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink before gluing them on my card base. On top of that I put this book die cut, cut from watercolor paper that I painted with Daniel Smith. The Colors of Winter were the blue watercolor, but also the Vintage Photo, because as I told Mary, Texas winter is BROWN. The little kitty is from this bundle, and I colored it with OLO Markers, brushing a bit of the Vintage Photo onto the book to make it match the background. The sentiment is actually a pre-printed die cut. I'm digging those!
