Today I actually got time to play around with some online challenges. I was so excited to have even just a half hour of “me-time”! So, I decided I’d play with two I haven’t in quite some time – ColourQ and Pals Paper Arts!
When trying to figure out what to do I decided to channel a stamping inspiration to me, Renee van Stralen. She is awesome. She has this knack of making bright colours look soft – something I’d love to figure out how she is able to do. (funny little side note: as I was typing this post, Renee sent me the nicest blog comment, too funny!)
The size of my card today is 4 1/4 square. The base is Rich Razzleberry and then I layered with Early Espresso and then Lucky Limeade designer paper. I then added a horizontal strip of Pumpkin Pie on which I tied some Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta (twice).
On this central panel, I used First Edition designer paper then I stamped images from Raining Flowers using my Early Espresso ink pad. I then took the challenge colours and my blender pen and went to work colouring in the flowers softly. To finish it off, I embossed a sentiment from Curly and Cute.
Then, I criss crossed some Linen Thread and in the cross, I added a Pumpkin Pie flower from the Bitty Punch Pack and in the centre a basic pearl and a little leaf cut from the 2-Step bird punch.
Thanks for stopping by today!
