For this one I started with a panel of violet paper, stamping the Delicate Flowers over it in Passion Flower ink. Then I stamped and colored in the Tall Flowers in 2 purples and a pale grey, and trimmed them out. My sentiment is from Simon's exclusive Flower Friend, and I added some grey striped washi to balance the flowers.
And for the Dusk Blue challenge, I decided to try some ghost stamping.
I first stamped the Garden Bouquet in Frost White ink, and after allowing that to dry overnight, again in Pool mid-tone ink, just slightly offset. My sentiment is from the new The Craft's Meow set called Potted Garden.
When I saw Jackie's sample for her Emerald challenge, it reminded me of this panel I had previously made and not used; I started with shiny white cardstock and sponged on evergreen bough, peacock feathers and mowed lawn distress inks, then spritzed it with a bit of water. And in that same scrap box was this feather that I had made after finding a tutorial for it, so I put them toghether with an appropriate sentiment(TPC Studio Vintage Birdcages) for my card.
Jackie will design a blog header for the winner of her challenges, which remain open until fall begins on Sept. 22; the more you play, the more chances you'll have to win!
