Transparency Theory

Hello Ladies!  It's that time again, Our Creative Corner Challenge time!  This week our hostess is fabulous Marjie Kemper and she is challenging us to use transparencies in your creations this week.  I had a hard time getting back into the craftin' groove this week, recovering from the vaca, Rug Doctoring my area rugs on the first floor....I'll give you a hint why, it rhymes with 'bat' and may be sleeping with the fishes when I'm done with him....  But now that it's all done, I'm 1 rug short....uugghhh....and have thoroughly enjoyed spending a few hours in the craftin' spot....*aaahhhhh*......

You all know I love using window sheets for card bases, but decided to spice it up a bit for this one.  I was really able to sit down and enjoy the crafting process this time and brought back my 'shabby' side.  The transparency is from Hambly Studios, its the dress maker forms.  I placed that over a stitched sheet I made with scraps.  I'm LOVIN' how this came out and that life is slowin' down, if only for a few weeks!

Now be sure you head over to the OCC and check out all that the DT has made this week, I've been swooning over each and every one!

So beautiful, Kristin... love the Hambly transparency and the totally cool shabby chic look of this piece. Lots of fabulous texture around your cute sentiment panel and the button and pin add so much! Love it. Good luck with the being that rhymes with bat!

I think your design is brilliant this week Kristin! That transparency sheet is so cool and I really love the patchwork background. The hints of red and then the red doily and button are the perfect accents. Beautiful lace and bow too!

So sorry to hear about your rug disaster. Hope you have a better week this week!

Hugs,
Linda

Love your card design Kristin. I like how you used a variety of pattern paper behind the transparency. I love the dress form transparency - I haven't used any Hambly transparencies for a while so you've inspired me to buy some!

I love, love, love this color scheme (I know you do too!), and your card is just gorgeous. You do wonderful things with dimension. Hope you have a great week!

Oh yeah, you spiced this one up beautifully, Kristin! This is shabby-licious with that gorgeous color combo and all of the pretty details you added. Sounds like you have a misbehavin' kitty on your hands, too. ;) Uh oh! Hope your week has been going well! Hugs to you!
