PPWCMD04: FAVORITE THINGS!
HOW TO PLAY: Look around for some of your favorite things and be inspired! Take a photo of a few of those things and then, see it as a bit of an inspiration challenge -- spark a little creativity with the textures, the colors, or even the objects themselves! This one is wide open for interpretation! Not sure about your favorite things? Click HERE and see a photo of some of Marcella's faves and use that as an inspiration piece! Just that simple! You'll also find the official rules HERE along with how long you have to get those entries in!
For my creation, I looked to my kitchen window sill for a little spark of inspiration!
I have no idea why, but I have a "thing" for cute little owls. The owl was my sorority's symbol, so maybe that just stuck with me! My mom and I were shopping one day and I came across this cute little guy. My mom laughed at it and thought it was kinda sorta awful, but I said -- I LOVE IT! Another thing I love are African Violets. I have been growing them literally since my son was born 17 years ago. During all of those years, there hasn't been a time when I haven't had a trio of these bright and bold beauties sitting in my kitchen window!
So for my creation, I chose to be inspired by the teal, ivory, green and bold pink! And, here's my card!
This card is pretty easy peasy. I started by stamping the large floral spray from the BRAND NEW Power Poppy stamp set called Poinsettia! I stamped using Memento Toffee Crunch and then colored it up with Copic Markers. I used: E81, E42, E0000, G21, G11, G24, Y26, Y28, YR0000, R81, R83, RV00, BG0000, and BG11. The papers are all Stampin' Up. The die is Spellbinders Petite Labels One. Add a little bling, some silver cording and a fun rhinestone button!
Here's a close up!
And that, my friends, is it! A pretty simple and sparkly creation that is ready to rock and roll for the holidays! I should mention that one of my fellow Bloom Brigade members, Leslie Miller also joined in on this challenge, so be sure to stop by her place (just click on her name to get there) and see the absolutely gorgeous creation she whipped up!
