It's been another long week with no crafty time. I just can't find time for work, gym and crafting during the week. And while I spent most of the winter in my craft room and out of the gym, my trousers are unfortunately so uncomfortable on me right now that I had to trade crafty time for some serious fat busting. Which went well with three nights at the gym last week, but then I spent last night making donuts, and this morning eating them. Anyhow, nothing like enjoying a Saturday morning with lots of crafting and a few home made donuts.
Today's card was inspired by several challenges. I love the inspiration image over at The Card Concept, I was inspired by the colours, the tags, the flowers, the polkadot and striped patterns. I was also inspired by the colour challenge over at The Color Throwdown and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch. Last but not least I was also inspired by the Polkadot theme over at The Challenge and at Addicted to Stamps where the theme is Make Your Mark All of this put together was very much a Kath Kidston type of feel.
I masked and stamped the flowers using the Stampin' Up I Like You set, and coloured them with Copics and Blendabilities. I created two tags from Stampin' Up DSP and die cut the Hello three times in white and pattered papers. Last, I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a flower for the tag, and added pearls to the flowers for that finishing touch.
