For this months Winnie and Walter - Rerun Challenge they were looking at 'In Bloom: Renee's Leaves' which unfortunately I don't have. However, you can create a project inspired by one of the cards shown by the Design Team. The one card that jumped out to me straight away is actually by Shay:
I love how the leaves are stamped and the blue water colouring is gorgeous. I also like the use of the silver and grey for the sentiment. So with all this in mind, this is what I came up with:
I hope you can see my inspiration!!! I cut a piece of water colour CS the same size as my card front, then stamped and heat embossed the leaves from 'In Bloom: Addie's Garden' in silver. I then had a lot of fun colouring the leaves and background using my Ziggies and a water brush. Once the panel was dry I adhered it to the card front. For the sentiment I carried on the silver and singular theme (similar to Shay's card) and die-cut 'hello' from some silver CS and popped it up on foam tape. A few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished if off!!
I also have three other challenges I would like to enter:
The Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia: Precious Metals (I don't usually make silver leaves but wanted to incorporate more silver as I love it on Shay's card)
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge (Use Powder - I used embossing powder)
We've made it to the end of the first holiday week and the kids haven't killed each other...... yet......I have a two hour gardening job at lunchtime today so the kids are going to spend some time with my Mum. Then Max has a friend coming over to stay the night. The sun is shining for the first time this week so hopefully we can make the most of it after I wallow around in the mud pulling weeds for a while....
