The Flower Challenge!

dsc_0277

Hello Friends,  I had a chance to play in my studio today since school was canceled due to Hurricane Matthew. We have had no problems on the West Coast of Florida and I am hoping for the same results on the East Coast, although I know a great deal of people are without power. I pray that is all they have to deal with! There is a new Challenge blog that has started called The Flower Challenge and I have been itching to play along! I don’t know about you, but I think it was a fantastic idea! We all have our fair share of flower stamps lying around…don’t we?   Way to go Aileen and all involved, I wish you HUGE success!  I got out the ever so popular Beautiful Day set by Altenew and went to work.  I stamped the flowers and leaves on my SU eggplant cardstock and then white heat embossed the outline of the same flowers after that.  I realized after the embossing powder dried that I had tons of white flecks all over the place….That ALWAYS happens to me! UGH!  So I thought, why not embrace the mistake and add more white flecks myself! I actually do this with diluted white paint.  I love how it turned out.  Then I got this brilliant idea to cut out multiple panels using my MFT rectangle dies, from greatest to smallest. I then decided to lift some of the panels and recede some of them.  I LOVE the effect!  I also like the wonky lay out!  I just noticed a couple of my leaves look a bit doubled in the photo, but I kinda like em that way! I used my Misti and the paper must have shifted a bit. The sentiment is from Verve!  Well, why not come on over to The Flower Challenge and play along…you have lots of time!  Thanks for your visit, they mean the world to me!  Nanc’
