The challenge Judith gave me was about papers with big patterns on it. Most were flowers. For this third round we have chosen een difficult one with colours which were difficult for me. Not really my colours. Looking at the paper I saw that the flowers were perfect for cutting out. And I wanted to use the papers for a border at the left side to show you what kind of colors the background has. My sketch was designed quickly in my mind and as some of you know purple isn't really my colour I challenged myself to use that one. I stamped a background with WMS Off Beat in purple and the sentiment tag as well. The white spot is distressed with antique linen and I stamped a background with WMS text it (maybe hard to see). I found a nice piece of lace in my stash which matches perfect. On the flowers two small buttons sent by Judith together with the papers.
I saw many nice cards with acryl paint the last time. And I had to give it a try. I painted the edges with acryl and well, the effect is quite okey.
So the card was finished, but I wasn't satisfied. The upper was too white, but didn't know how to fill that spot. I used gems and looked for a stamp, but no.. My desk is a mess with many small left overs from previous projects and my eye saw a small piece of paper from My mind's eye. Perfect colour matching with the greens in the patterned paper at the left side. And that was really the finishing touch!
Dear Judith, thank you for challenging me, in special with papers I would never have chosen myself! It was a pleasure to do! Let's go to the next challenge!
And now hop over to Judith's blog to see what she has made!
Thank you for coming by and now I'm really off for the summer break!
