Trees, Triangles and Quotes
The longer evenings are a boon for the crafter, particularly when there are so many delicious challenges to complete!
I combined two challenges to take part for the first time in Wednesday Stamper and Arty Girlz. Wednesday Stamper has a theme of trees, and Arty Girlz a theme of triangles.
I created a triangle shaped card and attached torn paper randomly, then stamped the four trees using my new Stampin' Up A Tree For All Seasons stamp, coloured with pens and edged with ink. I also stamped into triangle shaped pieces of shrink plastic - can you see them? I brushed the whole thing with PVA diluted with water and Irridescent Medium, then added some dried flowers and leaves from Hobbycraft.
Meanwhile the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog is looking for quotes or sayings. I found an ideal phrase in K&Co's vellum quotes, "The earth laughs in flowers" by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I cut boldly into a new sheet of College Press Grayson Hall collection paper and added some grand adhesions from K&Co, finishing off with burgundy organza ribbon.
