Had some down time at work today so found some time to peek at challenge blogs... so this is a combo of two of them, from Ippity the challenge is "flowers" from the shabby tea room there is an inspiration photo to pull colors from and it needs buttons, ribbon/twine and stitching... So had both of these printed out and a few others on the table tonight and it just kinda morphed. but, did not get ribbon or twine onto this card ( its scrappers floss in the button holes) so... not going to link it to that. but did add their link here in case you have time to try one. to me the Inspiration craft room had some bright pops of color to it. and that is something I rarely do ( bright cards )
the Ippity Now and Always flower was stamped repeatedly on scraps of basic grey, MME & graphic 45 printed papers and cut out, wanted it to look like a bouquet so did some direct onto the basic grey background panel also with versafine deep lagoon. added some distress marker ( tumbled glass ) to the edges of the largest petals. The lace and the blue button are vintage, the other buttons are from Basic Grey. the base is 6" in real life ( bazzill ) The sentiment (and flag) are also from Ippity from the love in return set. The machine stitching is only in the basic grey panel so not visible inside. thanks for these challenges ladies! & tfl!
