Botanicals

FEB09VSNP- Some man be Thinking of You

Here are the rules:
My challenge is to make a card that a MAN would send to any female (wife, girlfriend, mom … even sister, daughter, whatever).
1. Color combination: Kraft, Navy, Vanilla (or similar colors if non-SU colors)
2. No ribbon, no primas/flowers (Uh Oh). Feel free to substitute strips of DP or card stock, border punched or pierced – be creative in making faux ribbon. Have those floral punches? Use those to fill that “prima-need”.
3. 3 Brads … no more no less … (Not 4 - not 2)…3 on the whole card.
4. Your stamped image must be from Nature – as in Botanicals – leaves, flowers, trees, etc. (No adorable Hedgehogs or Bella’s, no Riley’s or House Mice, no Whiff's or Sugar Nellies, etc.)


RECIPE:

Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds
Paper: Kraft, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla
Ink: Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: see above
Tools: piercing tool, crimper


This was such a fun challenge. I substituted the crimped strips for ribbon.

All I can say is that you should be in a newspaper. You should most definitely be recognized for your work. Its not every day that I get to see art like yours. Go ahead, publish your stuff because I guarantee you that you will be noticed amongst millions of other viewers! Go ahead, take advantage of your talent, you got it!
