Oh, yeah I am also doing CASology's "Word" challenge with this one, too.
This is the lovely fashion piece that we are to work from-
I really like the graphic black and white scheme, the silky look as it moves, and that little hit of red in the lipstick. Great ideas to incorporate into this card.
So, I got an idea, and I got to work.
Tried once. Messed up with the tape. Rats.
Tried again. Goofed on the inking. Poop.
Try #3. Ribbon issues, then smeared in ink. #%@!!!
Walk away from the project......
About an hour later, Try #4. I think we're okay.
It turned out looking like this--
I manipulated the ribbon to give it some movement. Big help here from my Scor-tape and glue dots.
How about that little red "glow" going on there? Can you guess how I did it?
Nope, I did NOT ink the edges of the cardstock. Guess again. Can you guess?
I inked the BACK of the cardstock! What you're seeing there is the reflection onto the white card base, as it sits up on the adhesive foam pieces! Man, I was so happy about coming up with that idea! I'm SURE it's not really new, but I NEVER see it being used, myself, so it's new to me!
BTW, on one of my many tries to get this right, I attempted doing it by adhering red cardstock to the back. NO DICE. It was simply not as reflective as the ink. Not sure why, but you have to go with whatever works. The ink was key!
You have to see it in another view to see the edges are not inked...
And yet, STILL that little "hint of red lipstick" glow. I am actually pulling a muscle in my back at this moment, trying to reach around and pat myself!
Head on over to RIC, and try out this challenge! I hope you'll have as much fun as I did!
Oh yeah, I'll have TWO more challenge posts coming up. Check them out, if you get a sec.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
