Today I have a project I made for a challenge, Melissa Philips has on her blog. She has been putting up some inspirational photos from A Creative Mint blog for a while. The photos are stunning! I wanted to do them all but pressed for time. But this photo is just so attractive, I had to use it to make a project.
Here is the photo for you.
I told you! The photo is stunning and attractive. Looove the orange and white with a hint of purple. There are other photos from A Creative Mint, that Melissa has on her blog as well. I will definitely have to give them all a go one by one.Anyway, here is my take on the challenge.
I made a altered frame and a birthday card.Here is the close up of the frame.
For the card, I have used the damask stamp from SU Friends 24-7 for the background. I am loving doing up my own pattern paper. Particularly the damask orange background on white cardstock is just beautiful. I wouldn’t mind such a wall paper as a feature wall on my living room. Will make a great feature wall. Maybe a different color? Hehe!
Some closeups of the Prima Pearl flourishes on the card.Subtle yet adds dimension to the card.
I have started using my collection of scrapbook embellieshments to make cards. Feeling nice about it, because I have not used a lot of embellies I have for almost 11 months. Eversince I started to make cards using stamps, I have not touched my scrapbook papers and embellishments. I even thought of giving them away! But now, I have started using them on cards. So I will have a few of them and give most of them away! That way I will have some storage space available for new stuff.
Thanks Melissa for the photo and an awesome challenge. Have a great day everybody!
