InColors meet Peekaboo Farm – Inspired by London Underground – Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop. Welcome to my Blog this evening, if this is your first visit, I hope you will consider coming back. If this is not your first visit ‘Thank you for coming back!’ Yes, it is that time again, when those of us who earned the Incentive Trip (sadly cancelled thanks to Covid!) share projects with you.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that I recently shared some pictures of some of the signs that have been changed on London Underground. I am using one of those as my inspiration today. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, then why not take a couple of moments to do so now. You can find me HERE.
I knew when I took this photo that I was going to use it on a card, and I have just finished the project, ready for today. You will see that I have changed a couple of things, but it I think it is pretty obvious that this was my inspiration.
I decided to use the soon to retire InColors for the circle. This is such a great way of using up all those annoying little strips we all seem to collect ‘just in case’. I made a whole card front using the strips before running it through my Cut & Emboss with a couple of Layering Circle Dies. If you want to see more cards inspired by this sign, I have another version coming in a few days using the whole of a card front, so keep your eyes out for that.
I used a Basic Black layer between my Basic White Card Base and the layer I had run through the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I wanted something in the background, but only something subtle. Although the signs I saw on the Underground were not on a wall, it seemed a natural choice of background.
To finish the card off, I heat embossed a sentiment from Peekaboo Farm, using White powder on Basic Black, and added one of each of the InColor Square Gems. I find square embellishments an awkward shape to use, but on the Brick & Mortar background they seemed right.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and will consider visiting again. Now, why not follow the Hop by selecting one of the other names from the list below?
