In a Sweet Pea Dream - Challenge 5


Well I've just been giving my desk a little tidy and what did I find - a card I'd made for a challenge and hadn't posted - yikes!!!  I did have a panic thinking I'd missed the deadline but I've just got less than 48 hours before the deadline.  Moral of the story - post when you have finished and don't put it off!!!

The challenge this fortnight over at the In a Sweet Pea Challenge Blog was flowers.  Oh I'm sure that that challenge topic was picked especially for me as I love using flowers.  I have used a scrap of paper leftover from a commissioned card and distressed it with my ink duster and Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink pad.  I then embossed some red card.  Not sure why but it puckered up the edges of the card so instead of binning it I tore the edges of the card and used it for my matting.  The Sweet Pea image I have stamped and embossed and then coloured in with watercolours.  The image I then cut with a die-cut and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink pad.  I then fed through some think ribbon as it cried out for that. The card is finished off with some paper flowers, Bizzy Becs ticket sentiment, peel-off and I then used my Stickles glitter glue on the watercoloured image in places (wings and flowers) and also on the flower petals.

This card also fits the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Distressing
Flutter by Wednesday - Open them or sketch or open theme and sketch
Simon Says - Sparkle
Sarah Hurley - Embossing
Frosted Designs - Distressing
I Did it Creations - Wings.
