Hello Dear Friends!
It's been a crazy week around here so far but I did take this morning
to create a card 'Just For Fun' that I think you'll enjoy.
I know I enjoyed making it and as you'll see I'm still practicing
making homemade flowers. This time around using the new
Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose stamps and Botanical Wings (coordinating) dies.
First of all I want to point out that the SAME colors were used on everything that was colored on this card including the paper used to die cut the ribbons, the leaves as well as the main image. BUT once again my camera has tricked you into thinking these are different colors ... grrrrr!! LOL!
Here you can see the card laying next to the sheet of white paper that I laid my die cuts on to color before placing them on the card. Ooops I noticed I didn't include the GB3 (yellow) marker that was used for the flower centers. My background paper is actually SU Pink Pirouette but looks more coral in the photo. I really need to spend some time learning more about the settings on my camera ... but that would take away from crafting time ... oh dear, can't have that! LOL!
Anyways, a few challenges I'd like to share in today are:
The Shabby Tea Room challenge - Photo Inspiration
Beccy's Place March Challenge - Anything Goes using a Beccy's Image
Crafting By Design March Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Spring Colors
Retarte #37 Inspiration Challenge - Photo Inspiration (yep same photo as TSTR)
I do have a couple close ups to share with you and the list of product used will be at the end.
I'm truly enjoying making flowers again and how different they can be just by simply coloring with Spectrum Noir Markers vs Ink/Sponge.
I did a lot of fussy cutting around the Beccy's Place image (one of her FREE images called Posey).
I think it made a beautiful focus for my card.
I hope you enjoyed today's card share!
Hubby wants to head to a couple stores to look for a new dishwasher so I'd better get going!
And, he's been putting slide outs in all my lower kitchen cabinets ... yahoo!!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
As always ...
