Good Morning and happy Friday, we have had a stunning week here in Victoria and spring is certainly showing us some beautiful colours.
We have a new Playing in Paradise challenge for you today, Linda is our hostess this week and our inspiration is to create a ‘SpringTime’ theme.
Before I get to the challenge and my card there is some news over at the Scrapbooker’s Paradise blog, the Playing in Paradise Challenge is changing the format and challenges will now run for two weeks.
My term as a Designer is up and I have decided not to renew, I have enjoyed creating and sharing with you all each Friday. It has been wonderful to see what the Designers and challenge participants have created each week.
I remember when I was young we had a large field across from our house that my mom use to toss all the weeds she had pulled from her garden. Bachelor buttons started in a small area of her garden but soon spread... everywhere.. and mom started treating them like weeds. It was not long before the field across the street was blooming with these pretty flower each spring.
To created the background I used distress inks to added an aged look, I then stamped the script with a background stamp and used a darker colour to ink the edges. I also inked up a portion of the flower stamp with Tombo markers to add to the background. I did the same with the button embellishments.
I inked up the bachelor button stamp with dark brown then used my markers to add some blue to the center. I love the watercolour look of this stamp.
I finished with the sentiment, embellishments and some twine.
Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Crafty Indiviguals-Floral Collage Duo, Hero Arts - Old Letter Writing, HOTP-Tiny Words, twine, pearls, circle punches.
