Good morning everyone.. here is my third and (probably) last blog post from this bank holiday weekend. As regular visitors will know, I have been 'home alone' this weekend while my dear husband has been working very hard.. giving me plenty of time to scrap!
I thought I would also enter my photo on 'Our Beautiful World' photo prompt blog too as their latest challenge is 'spots' and as you can see, there are lots of spots in this foxglove!
I then sprayed the background with a shimmer mist (a home made colour) over a die cut to leave a stencilled pattern and added some subtle rounded impressions from a small plastic box and added larger splodges to finish it off.
I then took the bingo inspiration from SJ Papercrafts and added some torn yellow paper from my CKCB kit behind where the MS Trellis punched strip is. The bingo inspiration is where you have to make a LO with three of the elements in this grid.. ensuring you choose three in a row!
For this challenge I decided to 'use ink or mist', 'something transparent' and 'mixed alphas'.
So after sticking down my photo mat I added a doily and inked it to match my background mist and added a strip of yellow polka dot ribbon and some organza polka dot ribbon (my something transparent) , both from my May Madness CKCB kit.
Finally I added a honey jar.. also from my kit but made, I think, by American Crafts together with some co-ordinating flowers and brads with a couple of additional gems too and a swirl of bakers twine finished with the mixed alpha title.
I'm very happy with the final outcome as it is so bright and cheery..just right for these photos and I think I have just about 'killed' my CKCB kit now.. and here it is.. the finished LO.
Thanks for popping by again.. do let know know you've visited. Bye for now!
