I am so chuffed that I managed to submit a challenge entry over at Less is More every week throughout March. It's great seeing everyone's different interpretations on the challenges and it's really nice to receive comments from other crafters; it really makes my day when I log onto Blogger and see 'Comments to Moderate' (how sad am I?!).
These weeks's challenge is a Picture Inspiration based on this picture from Design Seeds.
Apologies for the quality of the photo, but despite the lovely spring flowers in the Picture Inspiration it actually snowed here nearly all day yesterday. Crazy weather - last week the girls had their summer dresses on, this week it's back to layers and boots!
Stamp: Hero Arts 'Large Blossom Background', Craftwork Cards 'Springtime and Sentiments'
Inks: Memento London Fog
I was on the hunt for a poppy stamp at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC but couldn't find one. I've since ordered the Hero Arts Poppy Background which inspired me to use the Blossom background I already have. I stamped the image in grey then coloured with promarkers and mat and layered onto white then grey cardstock. I rounded the bottom right hand corner for a bit of interest and embossed a single line below the sentiment on my Hougie board.
I'm really not sure about the finished card though; I think there's maybe something missing?
