Follow Your Obsessions for As You See It #181!

Friday again and another As You See It Challenge opens today! Challenge #181 is a favourite, fill in the blank challenge that anyone can do. It's just fill in the blank in the statement and then design and make a card based on your answer! Here is this week's challenge banner:

And what I'm totally obsessed with, ever since I saw it in the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue is the Follow Your Dreams suite with the Dreamcatchers! I love them - not so much the native meaning behind them. I never dream much anyway - well, not so that I remember. I love the design of them. The shapes, the feathers, the colours! When we were in Banff, we visited the Buffalo Museum there and the gift shop had a plethora of dreamcatchers of every size and shape. Ken had to pull me away before I bought one of each!!

Here's my design:

  • I love neutrals and muted pastels together. Here I've used:
  • You really can't tell from the photograph although I tried hard to get it to show up like it does IRL, but the Petal Pink layer has been embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. It gives a very cool, texture - kind of like raw silk, or textured card stock. I wish you could see it in the photo here.
  • The Whisper White panel has been stamped with the herringbone wood texture stamp from the Gallery Grunge stamp set. I love the subtle texture it gives the background here.
  • I stamped the large dreamcatcher image from Follow Your Dreams in Gray Granite on anther piece of Whisper White and die cut it with the corresponding die from the Chase Your Dreams Framelits. I also die cut the mandela-like circle from some Gray Granite cardstock to glue over top of the stamped image. I stamped the single and double feather double images in Petal Pink, Smoky Slate, and Gray Granite to use to embellish the dream catcher. One die die cuts both the single and double feather images. I added them with Glue Dots. 
  • The small pink mandela was stamped with a single stamp belonging to the Follow Your Dreams stamp set. There is not a corresponding die in the Chase Your Dreams set, so after hunting for awhile, I found the perfect fit in one of the old retired Circles Collection Framelits. I used a regular single holed paper punch to punch the hole in the middle. That was glued on to the dreamcatcher as well.
  • I die cut a couple of the large feathers from vellum and tied them on to the Grapefruit Grove Baker's Twine using some Silver Metallic thread. The sentiment is die cut from the same coordinating die set.
