I hope your week has started off well. Not much new to report here. The weather has been pretty good but we are in desperate need for some rain though. I just hope it does not hit us all at once.
Today I wanted to share another sample for this months SFYTT. There is still plenty of time to for you to play along.
I am continuing on with the challenge to myself to use my Papertrey Ink Year Of Flowers stamps. This month's flower is the Sweet Pea. I also incorporated the current Peeps Challenge hosted by Peggy Sue to use black as a bold accent or main color. This is what I came up with.
I started by stamping the Sweet Pea image on Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Ink. Then I colored it with Copics R30, R32 and R35. The leaves were colored with YG93 and YG95. After I was done with that I swiped the edges to give it a distressed look with Chamomile Ink then matted it on Simply Chartreuse and Black Cardstock. Next I added a piece of floral patterned paper from October Afternoons Thrift Shop Paper Pack and matted it on Simply Chartreuse cardstock as well. The black polka dot strips are also from the Thrift Shop Paper pack. The background piece is Berry Sorbet Cardstock that I embossed with tiny dots. 3 Simply Chartreuse buttons threaded with linen twine and some machine stitching finishes it off. I kept feeling like it was missing something but finally decided to leave it as is. What do you think do you like it as is or do you think it needs something else?
That's all for now, I will be back soon with more to share in the meantime I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
