I have been a huge fan of Danielle Flanders for years..... ever since I first met her
when we were on the Create My Keepsake DT together way back in 2009.
She has just such a fabulous style.... which she makes look so effortless.
Well, this week, for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #143, she is showcasing her Modern Whimsy Style and I just had to play along.
However, I found to be a little harder than I thought it would be.
Here's my attempt...
I decided to go with the fact that Modern Whimsy Style involves lots of layers
and layered some PTI Sweet Blush and Aqua Mist cardstock with some SSS woodgrain cardstock.
(A tip: this was the piece of cardstock that I had left over from diecutting my hello from.
Rather than toss it out, I used it as a layer.)
I diecut my banners (from PTI's vellum & a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper) with my Get a Handle on it Banner die. These I folded over the top of my card and stitched in place.
The two rows of stitching felt more whimsical to me, no?
Then, I stamped my sentiment (from Wonderful Words: Hello) with Enchanted Evening ink
and added my diecut "hello" (a Simon Says Stamp die.)
What do you think? Did I achieve the Modern Whimsy Style?
Thanks for looking!
