Hi friends! There's a new challenge over at the Time Out blog today. This is our Inspired by Words challenge and here's the quote for you to use as your inspiration:
"Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.”
I used a few words from the quote as my inspiration. Love, trees, encourage. I obviously used a tree on my card. For the word love, I chose pattern paper with hearts on it, and for encourage I chose the sentiment hugs. The tag was cut from watercolor paper and watercolored with some blue distress ink. I also splattered it with more water to get some water droplets. Then I added the die cut tree, twine, and sequins. The next panel was die cut with a pierced rectangle die as was the pattern paper. Finally, the base layer was run through a woodgrain impression plate (hard to see in the photo). The tag and smaller panel are on fun foam.
Cas-ual Fridays is sponsoring this challenge (my sentiment is from one of their sets). They are giving a $25 gift voucher to this week's winner.
Thanks for stopping by!
