The Gossip Column #3
I made a card today for The Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia No. 3 / Interview with an A-Lister. The A-Lister is none other than the FABULOUS Jocelyn Olson! I've been a fan of Jocelyn for a long time and was delighted to learn more about her and have the opportunity to case her wonderful style!
Not sure how well I captured Jocelyn's style but it sure was fun trying ;) My card started off with the white piece with the stenciled chevron down the side. This was leftover from a card I made a few days ago and I didn't want it to go to waste. I loved Jocelyn's "congrats, you rock" card over on the Winnie & Walter blog and that was my inspiration piece. I love how she die cut the word "congrats" and let the red paper show through from underneath, so I decided to do that with the flower from In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways. I also loved the layers of paper Jocelyn used so I made sure to include several layers on my card. I cut the red patterned paper with the large scalloped frame from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. The little row of hearts under the word hope are also from Audrey Cutaways. After I die cut the word hope and the leaves I used some Tumbled Glass distress ink and sponged the color on to match the color on the chevron. To finish the card I added a few yellow sequins and tiny white hearts, which I put a little glossy accent on.
This was such a fun challenge! If you'd like to try your hand at "channeling your inner Jocelyn", head on over to the Winnie & Walter blog to join in the fun!
