Hello my friend!
I hope you had, or you're having a wonderful weekend!
I had a lovely time to play and do some more projects :) It's time for another ROP challenge soon. Tomorrow actually. I hope you'll join us on ROP challenge blog. It's my turn to challenge you this time.. and I have another fun challenge for you. So tune back tomorrow for that.
Today i want to share with you my first card with Mimosa, one of the lot of gorgeous Bildmalarnas that arrived not long ago at ROP. You should go and see them here. there are such lovely designs. Other than being cute, what I also like of them is that they come like in a sort of mini scene.. they all have something either in their hand of are sitting on something etc.. And have you seen the new Christmas ones? Fun!!
I followed Truly Scrumptious lovely sketch, and keot in mind Stamp Something's challenge for this week.. your favourite colours. Pink and green is one of my very favourite combos, so I chose those. I coloured Mimosa with Distress inks this time, I don't want to neglect them :)
Then I added Crystal Lacquer to her umbrella and boots, I don't want her to get soaking wet :)
Then I cut the circle and hand cut a larger circle for matting. I distressed both with more inks (Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint for greens, and Fired Brick for pinks). I also punched some flowers and added some Primas. Basic Grey buttons and green flower centres added.
Last I made some black faux stitches and I decoreated the corners and added the "sweetheart" sentiment; both Studio G clear stamps.
Papers are: Basic Grey Urban Prairie and the green is Doodlebug lime pack.
I kept the inside simple, and based on the sketch as well. Big hugs, and see you soon with Roses on Paper challenge 21.
Thanks for looking
