Hey everyone! This time, instead of playing the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge, I get to be one of the guest designers! Woohoo!
The Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest-inspired photo that is located on the CLASSroom blog. A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store.
To be eligible, you MUST use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge below as inspiration. After you complete your project, you need to add it to the Linkz list on the CLASSroom blog post.
I was able to choose a set of stamps and matching dies to do this challenge, and I chose Bohemian Garden. I loved the colors in the photo badge, and decided to make them the inspiration for my card. Lookie:
GOJUS! (YILM!) After taping my cardstock down with artist's tape, I used distress inks to create a soft background and stamped some of the flowers over it.
I love the way the distress inks react with each other when you stamp with them.
I stamped multiples of the different flowers, cut them out with the matching dies, then used sponge daubers to burnish soft color over them. I accented the centers with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins.
I added some Sakura Stardust pen to the "WONDERFUL" in the greeting.
I love how it turned out!
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links from Ellen Hutson LLC and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
