I hope everyone is having a good week, so far! It was a lazy weekend around our house, but I was able to get a couple of crafty things done. Here is a card I made for a friend in need of encouragement.
I wanted to try a technique that Dawn McVey introduced on a weekly tutorial for PTI, that uses two different background stamps together. You can barely see the light pink polka dots in my photo, but in real life, they're pretty cool. I have a feeling I'll be trying this technique again. It's easy. I've had this stamp in my stash forever, and decided it was time to ink her up after neglecting her for about a year. I paper pieced the umbrella, and cut her out so I could pop her up. I think this card is bright, and cheerful, and I'm hoping it will bring a smile to my friend.
I've combined the following challenges in my card today:
Crazy 4 Challenges #197 - Paper Piecing
Sketchbook Saturday #102 - Sketch
Dynamic Duos #64 - Strawberry Slush & Daffodil Delight (I tried to get as close as I could)
Our Creative Corner - Words, Words, Words
Kaboodle Doodles #183 - Anything With Scallops (my lace has scallops)
The Pink Elephant #211 - Texture
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #232 - Backgrounds (using your stamps)
I am hoping to get more crafting done this week, as we're expecting rain over the next few days. Great time to make a bit pot of homemade veggie beef soup too, I think.
Have a great day!
