We had some fabulous entries to our Lemon and Lavender challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge - I don't know about you but I love the colour combination so much I had to stop myself from using it if fear of boring you all to death!!
This week we are joined by our Special Guest in the Spotlight NADINE , please give her a warm welcome.
This week our challenge is "A Stitch in Time" so we would love to see stitching on your projects this week.
This is another one that didn't photograph well, the colours and papers seemed to just merge together!!
I used the pretty Wish Granted Tilda, coloured her in Copics and then cut her out and stood her against a Round Nestabilities circle, I cut another circle using two of the dies and set it off centre. Against these I added some MFT Stacking stars to echo the shape of her wand. The beautiful papers are Graphic 45 Once upon a Springtime - they are luscious, I love both the quality and the designs. I couldn't find my Tim Holtz corners anywhere, (I've been tidying up and moving things around again - not a good idea)but I did find these which I've had for at least 2 years and some of them I had already coated with Tim Holtz adirondack paint dabbler so I used Copics to colour them green to match the papers and then scuffed them up a little.
I stamped some extra stars around Tilda with a tiny stamp I have and coated them with the obligatory Stardust Stickles. I used Spellbinders Fancy tags to cut a sentiment panel for the easel part of the card.
I cut my leaves with a Magnolia Leaf die, my flowers are Prima Athena flowers and some old Prima ones that were too large so I scrunched them up to use as centers for some others.
A close up the the stitching - I have this fancy stitch on my machine which I have used only once before and won't be using again until I go out and purchase a few miles of thread.
As always, you can win this INCREDIBLE prize and a huge thank you to Heidi and the team at Simon Says Stamp for providing an amazing prize week after week!
