Hi I'm very excited to be here with you today. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to win at Casology (you can see my card here) and when you win you are invited to be a guest designer. And yes you've guessed it this is my week.
and the cue card is green.
The inspiration for my card came from the scottish hillsides as we were driving back to Aberdeen from Perth. They were so green in the sunshine.
I made the shape of the hills by tearing a post it note and placing on some Very Vanilla card. I then used my Brayer to colour the hills in three colours - Certainly Celery in the background, Old Olive for the middle hill and Always Artichoke in the foreground. Once the hills were brayered, I sponged some purples over the edges. Elegant Eggplant on the front hill, Perfect Plum on the middle and Wisteria Wonder on the distant hill. A hint towards some heather perhaps? We saw lots of scottish pines on the hillsides so I've added a pine from Lovely as a Tree in Always Artichoke. My brayered panel was matted onto another panel of Very Vanilla. Then wrapped some of that gorgeous sparkly Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon around it and added a bow. My card base is Certainly Celery stamped with the Woodgrain stamp in Always Artichoke.
Thanks for coming by for a visit today. Looking forward to seeing your take on this weeks challenge. x
