It's time for a fabulous new challenge at The Friday Mashup - Holly has an absolutely gorgeous colour combination for us, and has asked us to throw in a nature theme as well. Umm... OK!
As if the challenge wasn't awesome enough - wait until you see the inspiration photo. I took tons of inspiration from the photo and used it in my card.
The barnboard background was made by running a piece of Smoky Slate through the woodgrain embossing folder. I then cut vertical strips of approximate 1/2" and then willy-nilly horizontal snips. It's barnboard, there is no way it can be perfect :)
Those of you who have been around here awhile know that I love feathers. I opted for feathers instead of flowers in most of our wedding decor, and the Fine Feathers stamp set was the very first one on my list with the last catalogue.
I made this card while hanging out with a lovely friend of mine, so I snagged one of her embossing folders that I don't own. It's fun playing with other people's stuff - once you get over the "do you have this?" and "where can I find that?", hahaha.
Check out the challenge this week:
- Create a project using the colors "Pool Party, Crisp Cataloupe, Calypso Coral & (Smoky Slate or Soft Suede)".
- Create a project with a "Nature Theme".
- Or Mash it Up and create a "Nature Themed project using the Challenge Colors".
Thanks for stopping by today!
