A Triple Play!

Oh boy I am just sliding in without much time to spare!   Lisa's Bloggers Challenge is all about color and I do love Brown and Green.  Inspiration Emporium's challenge at the Inspiration Journal is Bring on the May Flowers.  Last and certainly not least, Linda's  CC2#7 challenge is Brushless Watercolor, to be found on page 49 of Tim's fabulous book.  Again, we can't tell you about the technique, but I did it on two neutral backgrounds with a green and a brown color!   Daisy of Eclectic Paperie is offering a very nice $25.00 gift certificate for this week's challenge!  Thank you, Daisy!

The center green flower was done using a two way adhesive tape.  I die cut the flower and removed the protective paper, pressed down some avocado netting (you can see it), using the backing.  Make sure you press this in really well.  I sprinkled my first color of Glitter Ritz (I hate glitter), burnished this and then removed the netting to add my second color of glitter.  The other flowers glassine paper embossed and then I added seed beads. 

I can't believe how the time really flies.  My DH took this week off and we have been quite busy, so I was happy to get in the time this AM to work on this!  Hope you all are having a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

A very impressive card Terry!

greetings, Alie :-)

Lisa said...

This is wonderful Terry...I'm curious, what did you use to adhere your seed beads?

And thank you so much for trying to catch me in time. If I wasn't running so behind all the time, I would've been able to participate. I just saw it this morning, or I would've definitely joined in.

Where do I start! Lurve the background to bits, and the flowers - oh my goodness! How did you summon up the patience to deal with the netting/glitter/seed beads? Must have been a labour of love. Just stunning. Running out of superlatives now, thanks for sharing, hugs Buttons x

This is lovely. Thanks for your comment on my blog. We came from SO CAL over eight years ago and love it here. I am sure your kids will be happy here. Its a slower paced life for sure.

Fabulous dimension on this gorgeous card Terry. I love the colours and design.
We are in June now, 9 more weeks and I will be in your wonderful country. Can't wait (but I have to!!).
