The Flower Soft team is hopping today... today's theme is Autumn colors! You'll want to start from the Flower Soft Blog to make sure you don't miss a thing...because prizes are involved!! If you arrived here from Vicki's blog, you're on the right track.
If you'd like to join in on the challenge, pull out the Flower Soft ---------- we'd love to have you join us, and you might even win a prize! Be sure to include code FSC07 if you post your creation to an online gallery. Here's my card:
You might notice some of the team members warming up their JustRite Stampers..... because Flower Soft will be sponsoring JustRite's next challenge! BTW, I found it immensely helpful to trim off the excess rubber, though it scared me a little to make the first cut. The border I used is from the Backyard Birds set - I stamped it once, rotated the image slightly, then stamped again, creating a wreath of leaves. I watercolored the image using Derwent watercolor pencils, then used a brown blowpen to
cover up a fingerprint add interest and depth to the image. I used Flower Soft to create more dimension as well - the Fall Mix, Nut Brown, Ultrafine Toffee, and some Heather Mix which was dyed dark brown.
The sentiment is from the Christmas Nested Frames set, but I covered up the bottom part of the sentiment with masking tape before inking it up. (NOTE: remember to remove the masking tape before stamping!).
I heated the ribbon slightly to give it some twist and curl - a little tricky with this satin-edged organza since the organza part heats more quickly than the satin...so don't look too closely!
As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post! There will be a prize winner chosen randomly among the blogs. This is the prize package (one set for Splitcoast players and one set for the blog hop!) :
Fun, huh? Those hedgies are so cute!
You'll be moving on to Linda Beeson's blog, PaperCutting Kind of Day, next. I'm glad you stopped by... enjoy the hop!
