Getting Edgy With It! Freaky Friday Challenge @ ACB


The Freaky Friday challenge over at the AC Bailey forum this week was to use two different edges in a layout or card - neither could be a scallop. Aggh! That killed me, because scallops are my favorite shape to play with. But - I just recently got an order from AC Bailey that had two packages of Bazzill Just the Edges Die Cut Strips - something I didn't think I'd use all that often, but now I use all the time.
I got the strips in brown and white - so I used the brown one as it was and just ink-distressed it slightly to match the paper - Elliott by Scrap within Reach. The green ric-rack started out as white, but I direct-to-paper inked it to the green to coordinate with the rest of the layout. I love how it turned out and wish I had made some big dinosaur or something - it would have been perfect for a stegosaurus. This green ric-rack also got the once over with dark cocoa ink. I also trimmed out a heart from one of my edge strips and tied a ribbon around the funky thin edge to hide the distortion. =)
The layout was topped off with American Crafts Thickers.
All supplies minus the buttons can be purchased here.
