Art Piasknownica Recipe #27 and MME Card Sketch

I was so surprised and very happy!

Recipe Challenge
Clean and sterile
First compose a striped title (see the sample in the template box)
add a handful of metal pieces (you can use screws, nails, brads, clock parts, pins etc.)
One definitely dominant colour from the palette (bright one)
and an old useless newspaper.

Here's my interpretation:
I love the red-yellow colour in the example above and tried to keep it to clean lines as much as possible.  It helped to cut out the photo figures of Hannah.

To create the stripe for the alpha, I used newspaper  and a stamp making vertical impressions across the print.  Then drew the letters by hand to cut out.

The metal pieces include the button, circled wire and two tiny clips and two little music note charms

So all the critera is ticked (big smile)


Here's my card based on the sketch:
I've cut out another little banner and 3D-ed it by placing foam tape underneath and placing it almost over the top of the other.

Products used:
Front of card and banner: Lost & Found Madison Ave 'Girlfriends' Lovely Paper
Base of card: Kraft fun day Happy Days 'Patchwork Party' Paper
Glittered pink damask piece: Lost & Found Two Blush 'Favorite' Dance Paper
Button: Lost & Found Rosy 'Love' Buttons
Heart Pin: Miss Caroline Dilly Dally 'Best' Pins & Buttons
Twine: Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 'Like' Twine

All these you can find at Scrap Therapy

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!
