Say it with Flowers
Good morning! It's a new month and it's time for our a new challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts. This month we have a wonderful theme, Say it with Flowers!
I went a bit crazy with this card, I got the colour and detail inspiration from an Indian restaurant I visited. I have a soft spot for Indian food, yum! Hm, well, the thought was good but when looking at it - maybe there's too much of everything. Just the way I feel about the restaurant's buffet.... after I've nomed me through all the dishes. And the worst thing is that it's entirely my own fault, can't stop in time and only pick my favourites, lol.
Favourites I used for the card:
- A PB hedgie (from the Hugs! set)
- nestabilities dies and embosssing folder
- Distress Inks for distressing
- CB swirl and corner die
- MME design papers
- liquid pearls
- Sakura pens
I used something new for the colouring, Aqua Markers. Letraset has very kindly sponsored whole the team with a pen set each....and are also sponsoring us with a challenge prize! Yay!!!! We have fantastic prizes this month, so ink up your Penny Black stamps or pick your Stickeroos and join us, you can enter with three different projects and get even more chances to win.
I made a second one, just in case you need some more inspiration for a more balanced card. The stamps are from the same clear stamp set as above.
Hope you get a wonderful day full of fun and with lots of crafting.
