Today was just a perfect Carolyn Bennie Stampin’ Up! storm. I woke up with a pep in my step and instantly felt creative. I love that when it happens!!!
I’ve been promising to participate in the Artful Stampers Team Challenge Blog hop for a few weeks now and with the fun, mess and chaos of summer school holidays it’s just not come together – but today everything fell into place. Yay!
Here was the colour challenge we had to play with:
I’ve been able to dive into the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and the ‘A Happy Thing’ sets is so lovely. Not only is this lemon image in the set ( mine is playing the role of a tangerine today) but there is a cute chubby little bird as well. Both colour beautifully with Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities Markers and look so fresh.
I’ve coloured with my Calyso Coral and Wild Wasabi Blendabilities. Colouring is my bliss. Don’t get me wrong it doesn’t always work out (oh yeah, I’ve had some duds in my time) but the process of colouring brings my levels of stress down with ever stroke of colour. You should defiantly try it.
I wanted a little something around the outside of my Whisper White punched circle and I’ve created an effect that reminds me of old fashion stringy fairy floss by taking my Painted Blooms Cotton Twine and pulling apart the individual strands. I’ve mixed the Wild Wasabi, Whisper White and a little Baked Brown Sugar Thick Bakers twine together adhered with 2-Way Glue and mixed in with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. Isn’t it soft and delightful?
