Sweet Hearts



Jennifer Rzasa has a great challenge for us this week at Our Creative Corner.  It's called The Wonder of Weaving.  And after making my DT sample, I have to say that I love it -  it is a Wonder-ful challenge.  When I read what the challenge was, I wasn't red hot about it because I didn't have a clue what I could do for the challenge.  As I mulled it over throughout the week, I started thinking about die cutting a block of woven paper.   Ideas started to flow and I visualized a woven block of cream colored paper, distressed along the edge and sponged with my favorite Creamy Caramel ink.  So that's what I did.  The paper is Confetti White, cut in strips and distressed/sponged along both sides (I wish I had made the strips a little more ragged).  I stamped an itty bitty flower in red on every other square and then dabbed a bit of heat embossed gold/UTEE mixture along the edges.  The DP is from Raspberry Road (and I didn't even digitally alter it) and the other CS is SU - Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip.  

I embellished it up with several products that I am selling in my Etsy shop.  The filigree metal (isn't it wonderful?), the new Venise heart lace (which comes in white, but that I tea dyed) and the sweet little rosebud appliques.  I will have more lovelies coming on line over at my Etsy shop before the end of the weekend.  I think the ruffled gingham ribbon came from Flourishes.   

That's it for the dets on this one.  Now please hop on over to Our Creative Corner and see the rest of the weaving projects the DT has created to get your mojo revved up for this one.
