Our current Paper Player Challenge this week is "Masculine or Father's Day". Please click HERE to see the Design Team Samples and to find Mr. Linky!!
Today is an exciting day for me!! I just launched a brand new challenge blog with some wonderful blogging friends. I have wanted to do this for a long time! I saw the colours on Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge and the sketch at CPS, and decided to make a card to reflect how I am feeling today!
The sentiment I chose is from a retired set but sums up my feelings exactly, it says "HAPPINESS is when what you THINK, what you SAY and what you DO are in Harmony." Well I am happy today for sure and I love paper crafting! The colours from Stacey's Challenge...so soft and pretty...I was also inspired by the photo. I have also added the sketch from CPS. Love it!
I inked up my Fifth Avenue Florals set in Whisper White craft in and using white embossing powder, I embossed it. Then I used some Bashful Blue and Night of Navy re-inkers and a watercolour pen to colour the flowers. I then cut each flower out and covered them in Crystal Effects to make them shiny. I used the spiral punch to make the main panel look like it was from a book. Then I added a little leaf cut out in Celery using the Little Leaves Die and my Big Shot. The background is the inspire stamp from the Charming set, inked up in Bashful Blue.
