The Soul Scrappers challenge is to make a collage page using several photos with one word to tell the story and the date the photos were taken. I fudged a little on the one word part!. I took these pics of my daffodils this spring. This page was created in MDS. I used one of the photos for my background paper. This is a very simple page but I rather like it. I use the CAS style most of the time.
I chose to do an MDS layout from a sketch found here. I bought some things for a new fairy garden when I went to Amish Country the other day. I had made a small one last summer and added a couple things to it, also. My new garden is a lot bigger than the first one and I have no idea how we are going to get it inside for the winter. Guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!
My card today uses the Artistic Etchings stamp set and the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I stamped the crown in Baja Breeze and the Eiffel Tower and Amour in Cherry Cobbler. I sponged Crumb Cake on the edges of the panel. I ran the Cherry Cobbler cardstock through my big kick with the embossing folder. I wrapped Basic Black satin ribbon around that. I stamped the medallion onto the Crumb Cake base with Crumb Cake ink, then adhered them together as seen in the photo. I think I rather like this color combo.
My color coach comes in with my order that is due tomorrow. Then I won't have to think so hard to come up with a color combo. Haha
Today's Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoaststampers.com was create a card from a picture of a cake from Carrie's Cakes. This is the photo I chose to use. I finally put some ink to the hydrangea from Because I Care. I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Stazon Jet Black. I watercolored it with ink refills in Pretty in Pink and Garden Green. I matted this layer with Basic Black. I used the swirls texture plate on a layer of Whisper White and matted it on Basic Black after I wrapped a black grosgrain ribbon and bow around it. I mounted the image panel onto the swirls panel with dimensionals and mounted all onto a Whisper White card base. I rather like the way it turned out and hope you do, too! Thanks for looking.
