From Me to You

 
 
**Something Spooled**
 
We have a brand new challenge for you at The Squirrel and The Fox and it seems to be a popular choice among paper crafters.
 
Here's what we are looking for...
 
Ribbon
Twine
Lace/Trim
Stitching-with thread
Washi Tape
Embroidery Floss
etc.
 
Basically if it is on a spool you are good to go. :) Make It Crafty is our sponsor and the DT had fun playing with Zoe's amazing images. I used Sassy Violet for my hubby's upcoming birthday. She definitely has some attitude (just like me lol) and I think he'll like her. Since he's a mechanical engineer I couldn't resist using a Gears Stencils by MPD for the background and I added dimension by applying modeling paste directly over the stencil then carefully lifting it. I colored the panel with a red Faber-Castell Gelato and highlighted areas with a Caran d'Ache black watercolor crayon. I tore bits of washi tape and used it in various places to mimic electrical tape. Tim Holtz metal embellies, a bottle cap, wood gears (that were altered with a coat of gesso and painted with a silver Adirondack dabber) and some gauze sprayed with ink spray complete my card. Oh, and most importantly ;) is the ribbon and metallic twine which add a bit of sparkle.
 
 
SPONSOR

Okay, it's your turn to share "Something Spooled" at The Squirrel and The Fox. Good luck to each of you and congratulations to the winner of the Love challenge and Top 3!
 
 
Edited: On a personal note, my MIL passed away yesterday so I may be scarce in blog land for a few days. I'll be by to visit when things calm a bit and would greatly appreciate it if you'd keep my DH and his brother in your thoughts and prayers.
 
Hugs,
Lisa
