Just Because

Stitched Coaster Round UpPTI is having some fun 10th Anniversary Challenges & I finally finished my first entry which is for Lizzie's Challenge.  Stitching projects are the inspiration, but stitching isn't required.  As soon as I saw project #5, I thought of Snowflake Flurries.
I stamped  the image on Soft Stone cardstock in Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Pale Peony & Berry Sorbet.  The sentiment from Friendly Flowers is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black. The little black dots are Pico Embellisher.  This is Take 2 since a big black blob ruined my first stamped piece.  I'm proud of myself for not getting upset & not giving up--haha!  I'm also entering Retro Rubber (image from 2012--my colors may not be close enough) & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

The spacing of your stitchy-flakes is perfect! The black centres link them well to the sentiment and the border - nice composition. Thanks so much for joining us at Retro Rubber for our colour challenge.

Love the bright colors on this! So eye catching.

Neva Cole said...

Very pretty CAS, the use of the Pico embellisher is a good way to tie the card together. One hint with them . . . try the first few dots on a scrap paper before you go to your stamped images. I find this really helps! Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber!

Susanne Vargas said...

That is a very creative take on the challenge! I would have never thought of translating that into a card! Fabulous!

Helen Wallace said...

Wow - your placement is brilliant. I wouldn't even attempt such a complicated (for me) card, but the result is superb. Good job making the blob of paint work for you to create extra interest.

Katy McGloin said...
