I-shadow Ikat ~

Hola!  Silly, punny title, I know, but I just couldn’t resist.  You’ll see what I mean in a minute.  Did you all submit to the Paper Crafts Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters?  I did and got one card picked up!  Yay!  This card is a reject, but I realize it wasn’t really a DIY embellishment, so it makes sense.  I used the same pattern from this card with the combo of Wplus9 and PTI Ikat sets stamped in VersaMark on black…

I used eye shadow to color the card.  I was thinking of how I’ve seen a bunch of Perfect Pearls being used lately.  Instead of running out and buying more supplies I don’t need, I used some eye shadow (that I’ll probably never wear! Ha!) to color this card. 

The sentiment is embossed on a vellum banner that is wrapped around the front and adhered to the back of that focal panel.  Since it’s kind of a ‘banner’, I also submitted it for the Banner Birthday call.  It just wasn’t it the cards for this one!  Wow…I’m just full of bad puns today :)

I’m linking this up in the Moxie Fab World: Birthday Card Challenge…you know, because third time is the charm, right?  Have a super day, my friends!  I’ll be back with some more publication rejects soon ;)

Eye shadow? Ha! I would never have thought of using it on a card. It looks amazing, Alyssa!

Love this card! The eyeshadow is gorgeous on it. I still haven't bought an Ikat set yet. By the time I get one, the trend will be over!
