Speedy Fox & Friends - Mesh

Happy Saturday!  I hope you had a great week!  We are back from our trip to IN where we get spoiled, spoiled, spoiled and do all of my favorite things.  Much to my surprise when I arrived home I was not greeted with dirty floors and a sink full of dirty dishes as I expected.  Our teen boy decided to clean and organize!  Ummmmm....we may have a bit of a monster on our hands now!  Today when we went grocery shopping I was told that I had put too many snacks in my cart and all together too many groceries because he didn't want his organized pantries to be messed up!!!  Oh well, I guess I will take the bossy boy because I am loving the neat freak!  :)

I created a quick card today because, well, my mojo took a vacation too but didn't come home with me!

Our challenge this week at Speedy Fox & Friends is to use mesh.  I decided to use my favorite mesh, drywall tape!  I love that drywall tape has a sticky backing so once placed it doesn't move around.  I sponged on TH Peacock Feathers Distressed ink, then spritzed with water.  I used my heat tool to dry then removed the drywall tape.

For both outside and inside of the card I used sentiments from the newly released stamp set: "Pretty Pears".  I added layered butterflies using the "3 in 1 Butterfly" punch from MS and called it done!

Thanks so much for looking!  For more details on the challenge and inspiration from my talented teammates please visit Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge!


  1. Angie,
    What a pretty card and I love the BG color. I will definitely have to try some drywall tape!!

  2. Oh, Angie, what a beautiful card! I just love Peacock Feathers, and your drywall tape is fabulous with the beautiful and striking black images and matting! And I got a real chuckle out of "bossy boy" after your return! What fun! Sounds like you have a man growing up there! LOL! What a nice surprise after having a fun trip! Hugs, sweet friend!

  3. Love it. That is funny because I was cleaning craft drawers and saw my magic mesh that isn't really magic at all, and thought I should try to make something with it. Thanks for the inspiration. I will have to join in the speedy challenge this week. :)

  4. It sure looks like you mojo returned with you to me. I just adore the CAS card philosophy. Nice technique with the drywall tape have to remember that. Welcome back.

  5. Wonderful Angie!! Love the way you used your mesh as a stencil!!! Very clever girl! Love it!

  6. Angie - love the colours and the effect you have achieved with the tape.

  7. So beautifully done, Angie. I love the colors and the use of the drywall tape.

  8. Pretty and simple. The layered butterflies really make it pop. I recently got rid of a bunch of Magic Mesh, which was the different colored expensive craft version of drywall tape.


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
