Good Morning, Thursday!
Mother Nature is being menopausal again here in NC --- it started out in the 70s this week, hit 83, in the 60s today and by Friday it will plummet into the 40s! Your typical spring in the northern part of the South! LOL
Anyhoo, it's Thursday and time for a new challenge at
4 Crafty Chicks!
Leanne is our hostess and since it's now spring,
she has chosen our theme to be:
Who doesn't love flowers? Even people who are allergic to flowers (I know a couple) like to look at them, at least from afar!
For my card, I decided to use a floral stencil by Tm Holtz that I recently received as a gift from my crafty friend, Bonnie Klass, aka Stamping with Klass. We got together recently at my house for some chit chat and stamping and she brought me a few little crafty goodies! Thank you, Bonnie!
I also decided to finally try out the Tim Holtz Distress crayons I have had for a couple months. I used them on watercolor paper to color in the stencil and then use water to move the color around in each section. I like how it came out, it has a very textured, painted feel to it. I wanted to keep it pretty CAS so just added the green stitched oval die from My Favorite Things and a sentiment from Lil Inker Designs. I matted it on a bubblegum pink cardbase.
Stop by the Hen House and check out Leanne, Tamie, & Lori's fabulous projects as well as the one from our April Guest Designer, Christine! Visit their blogs and leave them some blog love, we designers love comments too!
