Curtain Call - Inspiration Challenge

Hello friends.

I heard Unity Stamp Co is sponsoring the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge... so I had a little time today to play and support it.

The challenge is about making a project inspired in a photo/image.  Here's the photo:

When I saw it I thought "white", gray, wood, clear and see thru... and CAS style.   And I really had lots of ideas in my mind but I went with this one... check it out.

I stamped Unity's hexagons in vellum using pigment ink... Yes... pigment... but then applied clear embossing powder and heated...  Loved the effect.  Did the same with the sentiment.

At first I was going to place the vellum directly in the white base of the card but then I took another look to the inspiration image and I felt some gray...  So I joined a gray cardstock to the vellum with some eyelets and then placed with 3D adhesive to the white card.

Kind of imperfect... just the way I like it.

But then I felt I needed to make another project... It had to be quick 'cause I've got to go to do some other chores... LOL...  So this is a mini card using a wood background stamp with silver ink, and then a sentiment in black (both stamps from Unity).  

Tks for your visit...  You can also follow me in facebook. Look for me as Scrapper Myra.

Both of your cards are wonderful! Love the vellum and embossing on the first card and the second card is an awesome CAS design!
Thanks for joining us at Curtain Call!
