Just another quick post. Each week I keep meaning to participate in the new "Cutting Edge" challenge, and each week I keep missing the deadline! So, as soon as I saw the new challenge, I thought: "I am not missing this one!" What a challenge - the inspiration card is right up my alley.
I had a piece of paper on my table that I had water-coloured with Distress Inks awhile ago - I wasn't really thrilled with the way it turned out, so I just left it there and knew that at some point I would think of a way to use it. The flowers on the inspiration card gave me an idea - I punched a bunch of flowers from the piece.
To create the focal panel, I die cut the word love using the Paper Smooches "Love" word die and backed it with a piece of the same paper from which I punched the flowers. I stamped the "you" sentiment (from PS "Sweet Hearts") and then popped the flowers around it on foam tape. I mounted the whole panel on foam tape as well. The watercolouring was done with Perfect Pearls spritz - in real life the flowers have a little shimmer, but it was hard to capture in the photos.
I hope you like my take on the fabulous inspiration card. Be sure to pop by the Cutting Edge challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
