I just loved the inspiration photo, particularly the teensy pop of yellow amongst the aqua and navy. Oh, and stripes + polka dots are de-lish! Anyhow, I decided to start by picking some patterned paper with the same prints, so flipped through some paper pads until I came across the Walnut Grove pad from Pebbles. I cut the Wavy Heart die from the navy striped paper and the Elegant Leaves die from the yellow patterned paper, then sketched in some lines for the leaves and heart. Next I pulled out Joyful Blooms and stamped two sizes of flowers and then cut them out by hand and layered on pop dots. The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut from the Flag It Die Set. I looped some hemp twine and tucked it behind the whole ensemble. Next I added some stitching and sketched outlines to my polka dot layer and colored a Freckled Fawn woodcut with a Copic marker and some stardust stickles. I finished off with a few distressed edges and some black liquid pearls on the flower.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend. We've got an egg hunt/pizza party with our neighborhood on Saturday and then a day filled with family on Sunday.
