Happy Friday!! Woohoo the weekend is here!! This is my second post of the day. For the Hoo's Ready for Spring Blog Hop, click HERE!!


It's time for a Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces!! The theme this week is to Use a Handmade Embellishment. It can be a flower, stick pin, crinkle ribbon or some awesome skittles like I used from my sweet friend and design team sister, Carri of Doubleclick AKA Abusybee, who is sponsoring today's challenge!!


Since it's officially spring, I wanted my project to be springy, so I chose to use flowers :) The base of the card is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp, followed by black cardstock from The Paper Studio. The next layer is heavyweight watercolor paper from Strathmore. It was spritzed with water, and then Dylusions Sprays in London Blue, Calypso Teal, Vibrant Turquoise and Fresh Lime. Charcoal was smudged along the edges.

The script stamp from the Tim Holtz Mini Ornates stamp set was randomly stamped with TH Broken China Distress Ink. The flowers are from the Dylusions How Does Your Garden Grow stamp set. They were stamped with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black. The petals were brushed with a TH waterbrush to remove the background ink, and then filled in with TH waterbrushes filled with Dylusions Inks in Pure Sunshine, London Blue, Cut Grass, Vibrant Turquoise, Fresh Lime, Crushed Grape, Squeezed Orange, Postbox Red and Funky Fushia. The stems were created with a waterbrush filled with Dylusions Black Marble. The smaller of the flower stamps was stamped in the background with TH Antique Linen Distress Ink for a subtle effect. A white Sakura Gelly Roll pen was used to outline the flowers and add some interest. The centers are the gorgeous handmade skittles from Carri :) The banner is a Spellbinders Nested Pennant die, outlined with charcoal and the white Sakura pen and popped up with foam tape for dimension. "Just Because" is from the JustRite Stamps Grand Sentiments stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Water (watercolor paper, waterbrushes)
  2. JustRite Friday Challenge #93 - Suddenly Spring
