This week's featured stamper on SC is Kathy Wattle (FS116)!! I have always love Kathy's creations!! She is also the sweetest!! Congrats Kathy! You so deserve this!! Since spring is here and when I think of spring and summer, I think flowers, I decided to case this card of Kathy's. I used the same image and layout and changed my colors, ribbon, sentiment and made many additions including dry embossing behind my image, watercoloring my image 3 times and layering it, using my cropodile to put holes around the scalloped circle, sewing around the edge, created a marbelized designer paper (cameo coral, appricot appeal, and pretty in pink) using today's TLC218 Rolling Marbles, adding a punched border to the bottom and adding pearls to my flowers. This week's OCCC challenge was to use your favorite color combinations. I love any pink, peach, or blue with brown. I decided to use cameo coral and Bitter Chocolate.
It has reached almost 10o degrees here over the last couple of days which is unbelievable in New York in April!! We actually had to put our AC on upstairs since it was 90 degrees up there and very difficult to sleep in. It has really sped up the blooming of my spring flowers. Here is a weeping Cherry Tree from in front of our house. Isn't it beautiful!!
