Today was a fun crafting day. I got caught up on a couple challenges, and started one more. I love all the inspiration out there. If you haven't checked out the new Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Challenge blog started by the fabulous Gloria Stengel - get on over there. Such a talented design team - it will blow your socks off. The latest challenge provided us a fun sketch as well as a 'twist' to use something old, and something new.
Here is my entry for this challenge:
More old: A Stampin up stamp that is one of my all time faves. The banners were stamped with another stamp from the 'stash', by Hampton. It is a fun word collage stamp. The Spellbinder Circle and Scallop Circle dies were my very first thin die purchase. I use them all the time.
The flowers were a wonderful find at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. Not only did they come in many colors and sizes, they were on sale! I bought every package of the white ones they had! I love making my own flowers, and heaven only knows how many dies I have, but it's always fun to have some you can pull out and easily dye to match your project. I spritzed these with Dylusions Squeezed Orange and Lemon Zest. I also added a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Pumpkin Spice. I love the way the flowers soaked up the color.
I hope you enjoy my entry - I can't wait to get on over to the site and check out everyones creations!
