Fancy Thank You – Inkspirations Challenge #73


Yep, I completely took creative license with this one! This week on the Inkspirations Challenge Blog there is a fantastic sketch challenge to try out! There are so many interpretations of this as you’ll see from the fabulous design team. Here is the sketch:

Now when I first saw this, I just knew that the two large panels looked like a “T” and with the current Paper Players “thank you” challenge, this was my starting point.

The base of my project is Naturals Ivory and I’ve layered it with Cherry Cobbler and then Blushing Bride. In keeping with the sketch I added a strip of Blushing Bride designer paper (but on an angle).

Now for the letters:

T:  I used Soft Suede ink on Soft Suede cardstock and the A to Z stamp.

H:  GoGo Boots (retiring) Alphabet in Cherry Cobbler (sponged).

A:  Chipboard letter. I added Tombow Multi Adhesive and then Champagne Glass Glitter.

N:  Soft Suede cardstock which was sponged and cut to make the letter.

K:  GoGo Boots (retiring) Alphabet in Cherry Cobbler (sponged).

S:  Soft Suede ink cut out using the Serif Naturally Sizzlet.

For my extra little details, I added a Very Vanilla small heart and a little row of 3 pearls on the “s” and a tie of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding with a Very Vanilla ribbon slide. Through the slide, I added some Blushing Bride designer paper.
