What's Moo?

It's Thursday, so it's time for my Artful INKables post! Today I'm using Down on the Farm on a template. I've had this idea running around in my head for a while, but I just couldn't figure out how to pull it off. It came to me yesterday (thank goodness, just in time!). Let me explain what I was thinking when I made this. When I thought of "What's Moo?", I thought of keeping someone far away up-to-date. What better way to do that than with pictures? Well, it seems no one sends "real" pictures these days, they are always digital. So I made a CD cover with this My Timeless Template called Music Makeover to insert a CD in it that contains digital pictures.

So I started with this new digital paper from My Time Made Easy called Flutters and Flowers. I printed this black and white gingham print directly on my white card stock, then put it right back in the printer and printed the template on the back. I then cut, scored, and assembled the template. I also used the script pattern from the same digital paper pack for the accent piece. I trimmed the edges with a Martha Stewart border punch. The buttons, floss to keep it closed and tag were added. Love the black, white and pop of red! There is a new challenge going on at the Artful INKables blog, too. It's a monochromatic challenge. I sort of got that going on here...except for that punch of red! I hope I'm forgiven! You can check out that challenge here to see all the details. You actually have until Monday, January 18 to complete the challenge to be in the running for a grab bag of stamps from AI!

The Artful INKables design team is going to have an interesting blog hop on the 15th (next week Friday), so be sure to stay tuned for that!

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great day!
