Good Morning everyone! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. Last night I spent the evening chatting with a few of the girls over at the TSG Friday Night Chat forum. That was a lot of fun. While I was chatting with them I made a card to participate in a few challenges.
The challenges this is for are:
Friday Sketchers - the sketch
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas in July
Just Magnolia - recipe 3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 ribbon
I like non-traditional colors for Christmas, so this was fun. I was sad that my image was still too big to see a lot of the detail of the beautiful papers I used. But I liked the overal effect, so I didn't start over. Not to mention, when the supplies come from a kit, you don't have much room for do-overs.
This is a swatch of one of the papers - I loved this! Pinwheel, yet sort of snowflake type flowers. I wanted to re-create this look and with some thick vellum and a lot of trial and error, I did!
I made my own flowers. In retrospect, I should have put glitter on them and I still might - but not for these photos. In this photo you can also see the little white stitching I added for one of the elements in the sketch.
