Hope you are having a great weekend, it’s cold here but the sun is shing. Before I get started with today’s card, I want to take time to thank the design team over at the Paper Craft Crew Blog for picking my cards as Top Picks for challenge 229 and 231, click on the numbers to see those cards. I am truly honored to be picked!
Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #233 (PCC233), a Tic Tac Toe Challenge, which is definitely a challenge. After careful consideration I decided to pick the bottom line – Torn/Crumpled Paper, Flowers & Insect.
For the focal image on my card I decided to use the Oh So Succulent Bundle (stamp set & matching framelits at a 10% savings). The card starts with a Tip Top Taupe top folding card base with a piece of Mint Macaron crumpled in the hands, adhered with liquid glue and a piece of scrap burlap ribbon, adhered with glue dots, peaking out of the bottom right. Sentiment on the bottom left was stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink and is from the Oh So Succulent stamp set. For the flowers, using Watercolor water and Basic Black Archival Ink I stamped a variety of flowers and leaves. Next using my Aqua Painter and ink pads colored everything in, once dry, ran a Wink of Stella brush over them and die cut with the matching framelits. The largest flower in the center is backed with a couple dimensionals and the balance added with liquid glue or glue dots. For the “insect” I picked the bee (in Basic Black) from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.
