I needed some fun after having a rough combo of 9 months Pregnancy, Laryngitis, & The worst Sinus infection. So I followed Ashley Van Camp’s suggestion to participate in the TGIF challenge #109. So glad I did. #TGIFC109
Part of the Challenge was to head over to Rochelle Blok’s blog, she’s one of the current Artisan’s for Stampin’ Up!, kind of a big deal! Little did I know that I had copied and admired about half of her projects! So I didn’t need to search long for a million projects I wanted to Copy and Change this time.
I choose this card…
She glued each of those beautiful butterfly pieces onto the black butterfly! Wow, I have a whole new respect for her!
My project looks pretty close to hers.
Boom, there it is! I had a blast making this card!
I used watercolor paper, wet the paper first and added Lemon Lime Twist to the center and Melon Mambo to the outside. I glued on the Die cut rose from the Rose Garden Thinlits. The two leaves are from the Stylish Stems Framelits. I stamped a flower from Petite Petals and punched it out. The Thank you phrase was stamped with Thoughtful Banners in Melon Mambo. To embellish, I used a Melon Mambo Enamel Dot, the Metallic Sequins, old Doilies (couldn’t find the new ones) and Basic Black Baker’s Twine.
Watercoloring the rose was by far my favorite part! It was best to start with the lighter color in the center and add the vibrant/bolder color on the outside and blend really well. You can use your Heat Tool on level 1 to dry it faster. I used Tombo glue to adhere it and Dimensionals on back.
The Black Baker’s Twine was added on top of the Doily and layered three times and tied in back. I made a cute bow and adhered it on the rose with a glue dot. The sequins and flower were put on with glue dots. The “Thank You” saying was placed with 1-half Dimensional.
Thank You for visiting! A big Thanks to Rochelle and TGIF for challenging me and allowing me to just play!
