Pin-Sights Challenge

Hey there, crafty friends!  I am so excited to be joining in on this month's Pin-Sight Challenge.  I am stopping in a few hours late...I just got home from last day of school activities, along with 5th grade promotion.  That's right.  Next year I am going to have a middle schooler.  I have shed a few tears today.  Anyway, I am home now and just realized my post didn't go live this morning.  Agh!!

So let's get started!  Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo....

From that, I made this....

I got a little techniquey for once!  I actually did a little watercoloring....

I used the Bold Blossom Stand Alone dies, and then cut out the dies from the watercolored areas....

And that gave these blooms such a fun look.  I added in a sentiment from Fancy Thanks, after scoring random score lines on the white card base.  To finish it off, I added in some sequins....

  7. Beautiful! Laurie! I love these dies, I really...really...need them. LOL I've only done this technique once and it was for a spider web. Never thought of doing it for flowers! I know everyone thinks CAS is easy, but it's very thought provoking, in my opinion. Love everything you do, Laurie. Thanks, Paulette S.

  8. Simply divine, I feel very inspired to create something similar using the PTI Circle Scribbles (oops, is that okay to say that?). Thank you for the most beautiful inspiration :-)
