Hello, Crafty Peeples!
I hope you will join in the fun this week at Shopping Our Stash!
This week our Stash Reducing Theme is:
April Showers Bring May Flowers
Create your project using: umbrellas, rain or flowers.
Another idea would be a creation for a Baby or Wedding Shower.
My project is pretty pedestrian. I am working with some new ColorBox products and I don't have many pastels, so I decided to go with the earth colors of which I am so fond!
GROW WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED!
My flower was created using the ClearSnap Art Screen "Poinsettia." The background was embossed with the WRMK Next Level EF "Butterfly."
Rather than fabricating a traditional card, I chose to create a panel card! I knew I wanted to use the "Grow where you are planted" sentiment but the problem was finding a complementary sentiment for the back panel.
The vertical Paintbox has been in my studio since the year 2000, I think! It definitely qualifies as a stash item! The white card stock is also about 10 years old. It was left over when we closed our graphics business in 2005.
I used the ColorBox Stylus tool and cotton swabs to color in the stencil. After the inks dried, I fussy cut the flower and sprayed it with Aleene's Glossy Sealant. I love the new colors and the fabulous Chalk Paintbox!
Happy Crafting! Looking forward to seeing your project in our challenge!
