Happy Tuesday, peeps! Back to the work week! Arielle really challenged me today with this color/inspiration:
This looks exactly like a shirt my DD would wear; it’s her colors and style, but not really mine. I wracked my brain trying to come up with a floral image in my collection that would work with this. Alas, my vintage heart won over, and even though the girls at Retro Sketches really go for clean, modern lines, the little rebel in me chose their sketch:
to highlight my shabby collage-style creation:
And since it’s shabby, it also qualifies for this week’s Our Creative Corner challenge as well! Woohoo! I used a Crumb Cake base here, and my tag from Two Tags was cut from a page of Authentique’s Genuine Collection. I added some stamped florals in Bashful Blue on the tag, a sentiment in Night of Navy, and some vintage images on the card in Crumb Cake. All stamps are from Pink Paislee’s Spring Jubilee.
I dyed some seam binding in Rich Razzleberry for my shabby bow, corralled by an Antique Brad, and added a couple of little hearts:
This is going to a special friend as a sweet little thank you for something nice she did for me! Now I hope that you can find some inspiration from this modern image and colors, and share your creation over at the ColourQ blog. Your latest submissions have been fantastic, I’m telling you….it is getting harder to pick a winner each week! While you’re there, be sure to check out what all the other fabulous designers have stamped!!
If you remember on Mother’s Day, Cassidy wanted a pickle, but after tasting it, gave it back to me! She tried again, though:
