Trying something different again today.
Different because this is not a colour scheme I would normally choose to use... and I've tried out a slightly different layout.
Take a look...
If you read yesterday's post then yes, you've probably already guessed it. This is indeed another make for the latest Poppystamps challenge. But did you know that over at Memory Box their latest challenge is all about Water Colour?
As these are two of my all time favourite challenges that I like to play along with (not discounting my love of tags and the lovely Tag You're It! challenge, of course), it seemed only fitting to try and make a card fit for both.
I am uneasy about the layout on this one though.
It's difficult for me to judge when the colours are so not for me!
The theory behind this card is 'taking a snapshot of life/capturing a moment on camera' - hence the film strip portion that's been partially glued.
Does it work?
I leave that for you to tell me...
But if it doesn't work, please be kind when you tell me. I am a delicate soul, you know.
I bruise easily inside and out!
Here's the Poppystamps Tic Tac Toe grid...
... and here's a quick 'how to'...
Make a quick Yellow watercolour wash. Leave to one side to dry.
Cut a piece of card slightly smaller than the water colour panel. Splatter with Distress Ink.
Cut two film strips, glue together, leave to one side to dry.
Cut and assemble Lavender Die, then put in situ but don't glue down yet.
Use Stencils to add extra Flowers to picture, using the Lavender die cut for placement.
Spritz stencilled Flowers with water and leave to dry.
Attach Lavender die cut, then overlay with Meadow Clover die cut.
Tear a piece of White card and attach Twine, then glue to panel.
Attach panels to card as shown.
Cut Photo Strip to size and attach.
Add butterflies and sequins.
One final touch... Add some Glitter Varnish spray. (You may want to skip this step).
It has a very subtle finish to it and doesn't show in the photo - but it is there!
