ALOHA

If you follow my blog you know I  l o v e waiting till the last minute to enter Challenges. I don't really but life gets in the way, I think on ideas here and there and then I look at whats happening and realise I am down to the last couple of hours and its now or never.



I have had this stamp for a long time and it has only been used once due to the abundance of floral stamps I have. Maybe someone needs to come up with a weekly challenge that is for stamped or digital flowers only. that way I could work my way through all my new ones, and my much loved ones and my many neglected ones.



I love this group of flowers and it works well on this card. I watercoloured with Zigs but stamped on Tim holtz watercolour paper so had a few issues. Anyway it worked out ok and I love the blue/green I used. Yellow centres give the flower a nice lift.



I stamped the sentiment 'Aloha' as its another way of saying Hello or Goodbye so can be used for either. I didnt want to do the splats..... just not confident enough with that yet so I decided to use a nix from Lucy's Cards that has mixed soft coloured iridescent sequins, stars and beads.
I'm happy with this and had best add to a Challenge or two.

Challenges:


I took the flowers arranged along the bottom of the card as inspiration and the die cut frame and the sentiment placement. My sequins are my substitute for splatters. I love Tracey's card, this floral stamp set from Simon Says is on my want list, its such a relaxed style and looks fantastic white embossed.
 I black embossed my flower as I felt the white emboss would loose the outline effect of my flowers. 



'Flowers are summer'




New Challenge to me





Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you come again soon.
