I am trying out a new challenge today! It's by the "For Your Inspiration" blog (find it here). They post an amazing picture, and you create a card or project based on how it inspires you. Here is this challenges' picture below:
And here's my card:
What most made an impression on me were the rainbow of colors, the blue, blue background, and all the many lines. The idea for the "twiney" flowers popped right into my head. Next, I had to actually make them. This is where a lot of my ideas just don't work out in practicality, LOL! But fortunately, these did. I love 'em and will make more of these for sure! Just think of all the embellishments that could be used for centers . . . (BTW, they were incredibly easy to make: Just cut some of the smallest die from Spellbinders' Inverted Scalloped Circles, tape a piece of twine to the back, start winding in the inverted part of the scallops, and tape the twine again when you're done! Add a center of your choice.) I used The Twinery twine. I did try PTI's but it's just too thin and subtle for the bright effect I was going for. The Twinery has lots of wonderful colors to choose from, and really matchless brightness and size--I hope they come out with even more colors! :-)
Thanks for stopping by today!
