Pink Tag

Our fabulous sketch for this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge come to us from the very talented Kim Singdahlsen.  Kim's sketch involves some tilted panels which always make me panic somewhat - a bit like Jen Brum and her dreaded circles :)


To deal with those tilted panels, I went with a little subterfuge with my card.


I just got my first order of Reverse Confetti products and used the tag and the office edge for this card.  On both pieces, after I die-cut them, I stenciled over them with a sponge and matching ink.


I stacked two tags together, slightly off-center and did the same with the word die.  I also went over the word with some Wink of Stella to give it a subtle shimmer.

To finish off the card, I placed a few random sequins and a bit of silver thread.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the design team.

You're so funny with your comments about the angles!! They used to make me panic as well but I have come to embrace the 'tilt', lol. I love how you dealt with it, your card is beautiful!!

Gorgeous! Love how you created the stains on that tag!

Ooh, I love those grungy stamps on the tag! And there's no subterfuge here! A tilt is a tilt in my book. I forgot to tilt one of my layers so I should be the one claiming subterfuge!
