Today I am thrilled to share with you a card I was dabbling with on and off
all weekend. Yes, it took me most of the weekend to finally get it to come
together the way I had envisioned. LOL
The creative process began when I saw this week’s Dynamic Duos colors along with
a gorgeous Inspiration Photo….over at Curtain Call (I love sunflowers )…and
this week’s Muse card over at Case Study.
Let me show you the card and then…. “I have some explaining to do!”
( read that in a Ricky Ricardo voice from Lucy) LOL
When it comes to the Dynamic Duos…I sure hope it’s okay that I added brown in my card…
I noticed some of the Design Team had done the same. (Fingers crossed)
For Curtain Call….I am right on target my card screams inspiration from the photo!
The only thing missing is some burlap! Need some of that!
Last, but not least….for the Case Study Muse card….I used the obvious flower as my inspiration and the fence mimics the
vertical stripes that are in the sample…I realize mine aren’t bright and bold…but I hope it will suffice!
Also, the vellum piece I replaced it with the 2 cross pieces on my fence.
Now, here are a few details of how I made my card!
The background woodgrain fence is a stamp from Stampabilites.
The sunflower is a stamp I have had for years that I got at a Garage sale….LOVE it!
I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color my flowers and then fussy cut them…don’t look to close!
Finally, that cool grass…is a die cut I got from Impression Obsession….Isn’t it the coolest!
Added the hemp and some distressing and Wahla!
Thanks for sticking with me, this was a long post, I so appreciate it!!!
Have a fantastic day!
