To pass the time until I can run outside barefoot and breathe deeply without choking on frosty air (& freezing my nose hairs), I’ve been playing along with the Clean & Simple Spring Design Team Search over at Splitcoast Stampers. We’re into Round 2 and are to create a card with an animal or animal print and think about lingerie (We’re on a Macy’s tour…)!!! Yikes!
For some reason, I wasn’t really in the mood to use an animal image as my focal point, so I searched my stash for some kind of animal print (more specifically, a leopard print), finding only some animal footprints from various species. However, I knew that probably wasn’t exactly the kind of “print” the challenge coordinator was looking for. All at once, that life-saving light bulb in my tired brain flickered on and I remembered a trendy set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps that I’d purchased not so long ago! Whew! Leopard print triangles, anyone?!
I played around with different arrangements of the triangles and then gave up on creating any kind of recognizable design that would resemble anything to do with lingerie. The closest I came was a bikini top made out of two triangles! Pushing those thoughts aside, I went with a heart theme, using the triangles to decorate a negative die cut. Funny how the crazy mind works sometimes!
