I love Hels challenge over on the Sunday Stamper but have been a bit remiss lately, leaving my offerings too late to post, but here is my card in time (just) for Hels 300th challenge! Well done Hels, you continue to be a wonderful inspiration to many.
For this card I kept to a purple/lilac tone of DI's on plain card using the spritz and flick method for the background and one of Tim's classic initial stamps that I still have wood mounted for the top and which I built up using sticky fixers. I layered with plain purple CS and then die cut a Sizzix thinlits by Susan Tierney-Cockburn, called The Magnolia, out of Buckram and dyed it with more DS. The little tag has a punched bottom and 'Dare to Dream' from Tims' little phrases set. The leaves are from his new greenery decorative strip. The flower was easy to put together and I do think it looks exactly like The President that climbs up my pergola which has a purple edged center. Well ok, perhaps I do need a tadge of artistic license or could it be practice, but it is nice to have another type of flower to make!
Hope you are all having a great week. Thanks for looking! x
