We have a snowy Tuesday today — nothing like last week — a soft, pretty snow. It isn’t accumulating on the roads, so that is always good. I had some free time this morning and decided to play along with this weeks Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge for Clueless.
I actually have not seen the movie (my husband has,funnily enough), but I knew which set I wanted to use for this challenge. She’s a Lady from There She Goes was the perfect fit.
Well, she certainly doesn’t look clueless, especially as far as shopping is concerned. LOL! The challenge requirement was to use plaid. I initially pulled out a piece of DCWV patterned paper in a pink & green plaid, but I didn’t like it against my paper choices of Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush. My next option was to use the Tartan Cuttlebug folder. I decided to use the SCS sketch challenge #266 for my layout, so I went with a white card base and added in the Berry Sorbet & Sweet Blush, each embossed with the Tartan folder.
I colored my lady with Copics and cut her out with a Labels 8 Nestie. Her shopping bags and purse are all cut out and popped up with dimensionals. Between the Tartan layers and the lady, I added in a really special piece of ribbon weaved card stock. Last week, Lori Boyd provided a fantastic tutorial for ribbon weaving on the DCRU DT blog and this technique worked perfectly with this card. I’m so excited about how easy this was and how it turned out – I can see this being an addicting technique. For my ribbon, I used PaperTrey Ink Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet satin.
I angled my lady to allow for more of the ribbon weaving to show through. No sense in doing it if you can’t see it! I added a sentiment from the She’s a Lady set and cut that out with the smallest Labels 8 as well. The final touches were some Stickles on the shopping bags and Shimmerz on her roses — which I am convinced these embellies rarely photograph nicely. Outside of the photo glitch, I’m thrilled with how this turned out. My curiosity is also peeked, so I’ll likely be watching Clueless soon!
