So where's my BBTB2 post for this week been? Hiding, of course since I screwed up. All week long I kept looking at page 30 in the Cindy Lou handbook and THIS is what I saw. This is no flourish, it's a filigree, but apparantly I'm the only one who saw it so my card looks ridiculous with all of the other gorgeous flourishes. Heather asked me not to delete it from the blog so I didn't. After all, I did do the challenge, it just was the wrong cut. Oh well.
I made a shaped monogram notecard using Cindy Lou and George in Design Studio by stretching and hiding contours, adding shapes to the base and all of that. What's weird was I didn't even notice the cut had a shadow (which I ALWAYS use when making my shaped cards). Can't even believe I missed that but it was a very stressful week, last week! LOL I was kind of thinkin' the shape looked like a formal flocked wallpaper print so I flocked the base filigree and it took on a richness that I love, particularly against the card base which is pearlescent (and doesn't show in the pic.) I wasn't sure how well the mongram from Blackletter would flock being so intricate but I was pleasantly surprised.
I popped a couple of layers for dimension, added a few gold adhesive beads and that was it I'm quite fond of the color scheme and was able to use scraps from the "Bite Me" banner. Now go have a look see at the gorgeous FLOURISHES the rest of the BBTB2 DT used and if you want to play along try page 40 in Cindy Lou or any other flourish you may find. xx
