Hi! This week, each of the designers for the JPD team got to choose their own inspiration from the very cool website: Verve Music Group! The awesome sponsor for this challenge is Limelight Papercrafts. They have donated a Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 Paper Pad to the random winner of our challenge! Take a gander at this pretty collection: Jovial.
Here is my card based on the album cover for artist Theresa Andersson. The album is pictured above. The card was for my daughter's 23rd birthday. She has taken to country western dancing and is really getting good! Thus, the cowgirl theme. The pink designer paper is by Paper Studio and called Pink Gothic Stripe. I cuttlbugged the "foot" portion of the boot to try to similate leather. I combined a couple of different boot patterns that I found online to get the right look and then paper pieced the whole thing, covering a base outline and popped the whole boot out on the green cardstock. For the sunflowers, I used a stained glass pattern found here.
I colored them with Copics and then sprayed them with Marshmellow Glimmer Mist. I used gemstones on the flowers and on the patterned paper. The embossed boot stamp on the inside is "Old Boot" by Stampabilities. I used Spellbinders dies for the inside frame for the sentiment. I distressed the edges of the card with a Tim Holtz tool. I used Rose Distress Ink around the edges of the boot.
I choose this album cover for the colors. But I enjoyed listening to some of this artists' music. Here is a sample: Theresa Andersson
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a great day!
