Here is the Color Challenge over at the Color Me Blog
And the Summer Challenge over at Kraft Journal Blog
My Idea was seashells and flowers-Massachusetts' beloved Cape Cod - without the lobsters.
I received this beautiful paper as a birthday gift, it is really beautiful with a pearlescent finish. This paper is from Michaels and I was ready to go out and buy a roll in every color.
Then I started working with it, UGH ! What a pain to cut! Even with my Genesis Trimmer I couldn't get a straight!
I lined it with mirror paper
and mounted it on craft base card stock
The challenge was trying to figure out how to attache the netting to this different kind of paper. I used glued
Slapped it on arranged it turned it upside down on the craft sheet and then put a book on it!
It seemed to work!
I didn't have the stamps in rubber so I created them in digital,
You can have this for your stash if you'd like just right click and save
First I did it in black and white
I added a bit of color
Then I pulled a few photos.
The star fish and the sand dollar worked for the challenge but the sea rose was not in the right color pallet.
I used my Spectrum Noirs to do the coloring
A sentiment and since this will be going to my sweet daughter in law - one of these 21st century wonder women ! Meagan is an engineer at Boeing Aerospace and a fantastic wife to my oldest son Roy
And here is my card:
My tip today: Try something out side of the box for a embellishment!
