be a Guest Designer for Inspired By All The Little Things.
This is an inspiration challenge started by another
very talented friend, Lesley Croghan.
Of course I said yes!
Here's the challenge...
and here's my card...
My eyes immediately found those cream and rust colored mums.
Being a CAS girl, I chose to go with one and clear embossed the mum
on hot press watercolor paper.
I used watercolors and re-inkers to get some of the rust color in the mix.
I've got to tell you, I ended up with a hot mess!
So I tried stamping a different mum....several times.
Nothing was making me happy.
You know that feeling when it's just right?
Well it wasn't coming.
My eye kept going back to this hot mess and I had an eureka moment!
I didn't have to use the whole messy piece.
When I held a circle die over it, it didn't look half bad.
This made me happy.
Being a guest designer makes me happy.
And this will make my sister happy, come her anniversary.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
