I thought this was a neat challenge this week for The Cuttlebug Spot. Your favorite flower. Well I just adore flowers really and find most of them just stunning but I am the worse at knowing any names (that and dogs, I swear I only know like 3 breeds) wow am I off topic...
my favorite flower...calla lilies! I find them elegant and exotic and just plain different!
My challenge was were to find this flower to put onto a project. I recalled some good old stickers I had and came across some neat vellum stickers and low and behold, calla lilies!
The card base is Papertrey Ink kraft cardstock. For any of you looking for the worlds best cardstock, lets say for card bases...I swear this stuff is so thick! I was completely impressed!
Cuttlebug Highlight~ I started with Birds and Swirls and then embossed over that with the Journaling Card folder.
To highlight the design I used Tattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Dried Marigold Distress Inks. I used a small paint brush dipped in water to subtly add color to various parts of the embossed image.
I layered the vellum sticker over Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. But because of doing that the color in the vellum sticker was washed out. I also used the Distress Inks to add some more color to the sticker as well.
And the most important part of this post is....
ok I know not everyone likes to have their birthday spilled to the masses but I know how much we all adore her and would want a chance to wish her a happy birthday (which is tomorrow by the way!)
Love ya lots and lots Donna!
