We've been off school this week on vacation and having a wonderful time taking day trips to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory, an Exotic Zoo in Johnson City, Texas, eating out, doing a little yard clean-up and best of all just relaxing together as a family!
The Creative Challenge Club this week is a color challenge and wow did it leave me stumped!
For several days I had mixed emotions about what I came up with but I think it's growing on me the longer it sits on my desk. ha!
I'll jump right in and share what I came up with:
(Sorry for the slightly blurry picture and shadow!)
I started off with a card base in Crushed Curry and layered on some DSP featuring Island Indigo and Whisper White. I embossed the "vintage" tree in white on water color paper and then did a water color wash of Island Indigo (bottom), Crushed Curry (middle), and Pumpkin (top). Using my sewing machine I did a little machine stitching three times around the edge of the water color paper, scuffed the edge with my finger nail to roughen it up a bit and curled the top right edge over on itself. The sentiment is cropped with the banner framelits and clipped on with a mini paper clip with a knot of Island Indigo ribbon tied to it.
Here's the Banner for this week's challenge:
