not much crafting going on at moment as I was busy last weekend surviving my Mr 4's birthday party - the most hair raising momment was when one of the rocketship cake's thrusters (=sparkler) actually burnt a hole in the tablecloth!!! Now I just need to survive Miss 7's party next weekend and then I can get back to some crafting again. Luckily I prepared for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge ahead of time - this week we have a colour combo for you. Here it is.
Something flowery was my starting point and I used surprisingly less Pool Party that I had originally planned but that was just the way it worked out - funny how some cards evolve on you!
So basically I just started by stamping a background pattern using the leafy foliage and then adding in flowers and finally filling some little spaces with the little Pool Party dots. Once the background was done I added a glittered strip across towards the bottom and then contructed my sentiment focal point. For this I layered a stamped and impressed die cut with a stamped decorative label. Added die cut foliage to either side, embellished those with rhinestones and added some threaded buttons to either side of the sentiment. I was pretty happy with it once it was all done but it did take some fiddling and an intermission of a day or two ;) to think about how to finish it off!
Thanks for visiting - hope you get the chance to play along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
