The Paper Girls Challenge #12 - Using Mesh

Charity challenged us all to create a layout or card using some form of mesh. Initially I thought of the mesh that you find in the produce sections with the onions or the foam mesh on Japanese Pears, but try as I might and three local grocery stores later I was still without any mesh!
While at work at the hospital over the weekend it suddenly dawned on me....there's more kinds of mesh than just produce mesh....What is gauze? It's just pieces of cotton weaved into a loose mesh! As soon as I arrived home I raided our first aid kit and found a long spool of mesh bandaging gauze and the creative wheels started turning!

I unrolled a long piece of gauze and I knew that I wanted to tie it onto a card the same way you would a piece of ribbon. Staying with the First Aid theme I used the bandaid stamp from Lawn Fawn, grabbed a couple copics and put together a "Speed Recovery" card. The white gauze was too striking/gaunt next too the kraft card base so I used some Glimmer Mist to dye it brown.

Make sure you head over to The Paper Girls Challenge Blog to see what everyone has created using different kinds of mesh!

I am now off to the Pharmacy to restock my raided First Aid Kit ;)

Hope everyone is having an awesome summer!
