TECC75 Let’s Chat

July 24th, 2009


Happy Friday!  It’s time for another one of Taylor’s awesome sketches with TECC75!  I tweaked the sketch just a bit by making into a 6 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ mini tall card.  I pretty much had to do this after I had all of my flowers (from SU Petal Pizazz) stamped and cut out and discovered that they didn’t fit very well on a standard sized card.  I’ve always liked this size card anyway and I have a box of envelopes stashed away for just such an occasion.  *wink*

Cardstock and patterned paper are from the Taylored Expressions July 20th Key Ingredients Kit which features Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers.  I LOVE this KI and I’m looking forward to playing with it a lot more.  When I was looking for images to use in the circle elements of the sketch, I was tickled to find how well Petal Pizazz goes with the Early Bird paper!  I stamped this flower in three different colors of Versamagic ink (wow I just noticed that eclectic Paperie has these inks for 35% off!) and used circle punches for the two center layers to be adhered on top of the cut out flowers.  Then I just embellished them with two colors of Stickles.  The middle flower is adhered directly to the card, while the flower on the right is popped up on 1/16″ foam tape and the one on the left is popped up higher on 1/8″ foam tape.  The sentiment is from Elzybells and it’s punched with the SU Modern Label punch.  The ric rac started out white, but I colored with my BG72 Copic marker.
