... it's already the last Sunday in August and time for our new challenge at CR84FN. This is a scheduled post - as I'll be at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival - so hopefully Blogger is playing nice! Our colours this week are so cool - light blue, turquoise and neutral.
The beautiful inspiration photos are courtesy of Martha Stewart - just love those buttons! And that's a fabulous quote too.
I've gone for a clean and simple card this week and my neutrals are black and white. The flower face stamp is a bit different - it reminds me of a painting that my uncle did years and years ago. I like the sweep of flowers over the girl's face, allowing an eye to peep out and a hint of a smile. I stamped and embossed the image and then cut it out with my nesties. I added some colour to the border with distress inks, and coloured the flowers with my aqua painter and then matted the image onto black and turquoise layers. I stamped flourishes on the base card to match the flowers. I like the little smile that you can see behind the flowers and found this lovely sentiment in my stash - so true!!
