Hey, everyone, and welcome to my last week of hosting Crazy 4 Challenges for this month. I’ve had fun coming up with some things to challenge everyone and still be fun. This week, I’m challenging you to NOT use any commercially made patterned paper. Feel free to make your own, as I did, or no patterned paper at all :)
My homemade patterned paper was actually a happy accident. You might remember that I’ve been dabbling in mixed media a tiny bit so I was just testing out some Glimmer Mist sprays that I had on hand on some scrap paper. After I sprayed this green, turquoise, orange combo of colors I looked at it and said “Hey, that looks pretty cool!”. So I did it again on some Sweet Tooth card stock and used it on this card :) After I sprayed and trimmed that panel. I used my Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish on it, popped up some Jellybean Green card stock behind the cut out, then popped the whole thing up on foam on a Kraft card stock base. To finish it off, I stamped a sentiment from Inspired by Flowers, Set #1 on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag with Black Licorice ink, also popped up on foam.
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set:
