First up apologies for not visiting this week, I am watching the Olympics, so my routine is grounded and probably will be for another week.
Anyway to the task in hand, we are well into August and it is Saturday so that means another Challenge at Our Creative Corner.
This week our hostess is Paula McClane and the theme is Bling/Nature!
Use rhinestones, stickles, glitter, etc along with items found in nature (plants, animals, etc)! A bit of Bling mixed with nature...
Here is my sample for you to contemplate on; it is a Tulip(nature) and a Bling trim. I just had a thought, are pearls classed as Bling? I do have some kindy glitz on the tulip.
The Tulip stamp is 'Printworks'?
I have stamped it with Black versafine and heat embossed on top of cardstock that had previously been dry embossed. Coloured up in copics-- my one Red; R27 (I really should get another) and Greens G99 YG03... odd combinations I know but it looks okay, no doubt all the copic fanatics will be cringing, to me if it looks good then it works.... what else can I say.
I have fussy-cut the Tulip and attached it to the Bg.
As you can see there is not much going on, it is a congenial card, the most one can say is that it is pleasing to the eye, no-one will look upon this card and say WOW!!!!!
It has just enough interest, but little else.
I should be thankful that I made it this good, as my spark-plugs need energising, there is no originality oozing from this medulla of mine at present.
I just wish this cold weather would go away!
Someone please transport some inspiration to me, show me your creations and post them up on the Blog here, and while you are there pay a visit to my teamies as their creations will probably entice you even more to play along.
We would love you to join in and show us your talent, you could be our next Guest designer! Now that would be special not just for you, but we would all enjoy it as well!
Have a great weekend and thanks heaps for the visit.
