Bloggers Challenge


It's week 41 of the Bloggers Challenge, and this week the challenge was to use the layout on page 65 of the Spring Summer Collection as your inspiration. I had quite a few ideas of what I wanted to make, of course I put this card off until the morning it was supposed to be posted. I played with a few different stamps - but am really happy with the outcome of my finished card. I used my Coluzzle to make the circle on my Afternoon Tea DSP, and added my 1/2" circles to create a scallop look. For my main image, I paper pieced the vase using the Afternoon Tea DSP, the flowers are embossed and water colored on watercolor paper, cut out and attached.

Details:
Stamps - Bloomin' Beautiful, Warm Words
Ink - Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava
Card Stock - Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Afternoon Tea DSP, Watercolor
Other - 1/4" Circle Punch, Coluzzle, 1/2" Circle Punch, Crystal Effects, 5/8" Chocolate Grosgrain
Tech - Paper Piecing
