Both my daughters are now recovered from their bronchitis and are both back in school. After having one or both home for two consecutive weeks, it is so quiet without them around the past two days! I have put all of my Halloween papers and embellies away, so my craft room is a bit neater; my desk still has some piles to work through...
I was in need of mojo, so I checked out some of my favorite challenge blogs for inspiration.
I found this sketch at Freshly Made:
I noticed that peach strip right way! I have a few bits and bobs on my desk; extra pieces that never made it on a card. One bit is a paper strip of white card stock that I had covered in My Mind's Eye "All is Bright" washi tape (aqua). That was my jumping off point. I pulled another scrap strip of white card stock from my scraps bag and covered it with the red chevron pattern washi tape (also MME "All is Bright.")
Then I perused my Christmas stamps, and I chose this Santa Rosa stamp from 2001. I colored the flowers with a Promarker "poppy". I wanted to match the aqua, but I do not own any aqua-colored markers! I blended two Copic marker colors: G82 and B00. I added Hero Arts pearls to the center of my flowers and glossy accents to the flowers and berries.
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!
Happy Wednesday :)
