The challenge today for Splitcoast Stampers, the sketch challenge 495
|How many things do we take
for granted every day? We pass by them and for the most part they are
un-noticed. That was my inspiration for my card today. The weeds,
Chicory flowers and chick peas, were growing outside my office window. I
have done lots of pounded flowers, my blog history will attest to that. What
I hadn't tried before was doing it on an encyclopedia page. I really
like how it looks on the encyclopedia page. I had to be more gentle with
the paper but the colors were more vibrant than on white cardstock.
(not sure why except I think the encyclopedia paper was more absorbent
so it probably soaked up more of the flower's pigment.) I was trying to
figure out what to put with my flowers and thought of brown paper bags. I
mostly picked it because of the brown color, but I liked the thought of
using the paper bag because most people throw brown bags away. |
I picked the friends sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called FRIENDS, because I wanted to remind myself that sometimes I am guilty of taking my friends for granted and I don't want to do that because life is unpredictable and precious. This card is going to a friend for NO reason. A just because card. I am entering this card in the WAW-139 challenge.
