Mark's Finest Papers-Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #41. The challenge is to use a self made flower on your card or project.
I'm using the colors from The Play Date Cafe challenge PDCC67. When I first saw the picture, I thought it was beautiful and then I couldn't imagine what I would do with those colors. But, in the end, I think I am pleased.
The Shabby Tea Room:Week #47-Get Creative They ask you to make your own background (no patterned paper). And, make your own handmade embellishment (s). Mine is the rose I mentioned above.
For the background on my card, I started with a white piece of cardstock, then stamping with an All Night Media stamp (no name) that has little specks all over it. I used Stampin'Up! Night of Navy, Tim Holtz Distressed Stormy Sky, and Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler. The next step was to stamp an Inkadinkado stamp called Swirly onto the paper and clear emboss. I see most of that was covered by my bird image. After this was finished, I sponged over my paper with VersaMagic chalk ink-Pixie Dust.
Love this little image I found in Jo Ann's for $1. I stamped in SU Night of Navy and clear embossed. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a circle and circle, scalloped nestabilitie and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stormy Sky while still in the nestie.
Add a ribbon and a punched corner and it's finished.
