CR84FN challenge #20


Such lovely springy colors this week at CR84FN!


I started with this lovely photograph that Godelieve shared with us a few weeks ago - the colors are exactly right for the challenge, don't you think?  Then I stamped the Classic Fabric Design twice, once in dusty concord distress ink on lavendar cardstock, and again with Grass chalk ink on green cardstock. I trimmed the green and layed it over the purple, matching the stamped designs, then centered the photograph of the crocuses.  My only additions were the green gingham check ribbon, a button and twine, and the tiny sentiment. 

supplies: lavender and green cardstocks, Godelieve's photgraph, printed out in wallet size, Hero Arts CG245 Classic Fabric Design, dusty concord distress ink and Hero Hues Grass chalk ink, CL272 All Occasion Messages, white cardstock, versafine onyx black ink, green gingham ribbon, button from Savannah and white twine
