I'm resolved to try and make Monday "Craft" day, so whilst I had various errands I had to run, I really wanted to sit down and produce something tangible today.
This little flowery scrap had been sitting on my workdesk for months, and Paper Players new 'flowers' challenge made me commit to doing something with it. Given it's also a CAS challenge, and wanting to use the Paper Play sketch I decided to just use a single layer on a card blank. Cue masking - I deployed lots of post its to create the coloured border, adding a doodled edging to enhance the depth. Then I decided how wide to make the inner strip, masked it off and brushed the same colours as the border through a stencil. I wasn't sure what to put in the background, other than I wanted it to be subtle, and what's more appropriate behind flowers than a brick wall.
Added a birthday sentiment, as I've got a heap of those coming up. 'Birthday' is one Clarity's fabulous word chains, and I created 'Wishes' from their complementary alphabet set.
