Good morning, everyone! What a whirlwind week. Are you guys ready for the weekend? We have a company picnic on Sunday at a park with great outdoorsy fun. If I remember right, we had that event there about three or four years ago, and there were paddle boats. But I am secretly looking forward to watermelon ;)
This week's theme at DYSU is Landscape. Yep - the DT had a toughie with this one, but there is plenty of inspiration spread across the team. We even worked on it as a team and gave each ideas how to go about it...
This week I'm working with a sponsor image by Pink Cat Studios called Happy Flower.
Stamps: (Happy Flower) Pink Cat Studio; (Up, Up & Away) Papertrey Ink
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Fresh Linen, White) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin No. 8 - Soap Powder, No. 4 - Lemon Drops) Ranger
Embellishments: (Sewing Thread - White) Gütermann; (Precision Pen 03) American Crafts; (L'occitane Ribbon) Recycled
The landscape scene is just an everyday fun garden scene, with some grass, clouds and sun! The grass is actually made out of recycled ribbon from L'occitane...
The grass is different lengths cut at an angle and alternated in a fun way to give it depth. I like the two tone that the ribbon had, so I had a lot of variety in color to make it work.
The faux stitching around the card is inspired by the ribbon and the rest of the flower just has some fun vibrant colors. Here an unclose look of the image...
That's all I have for you today; please check out the amazing creations by the talented DT and welcome our guest designers. And I look forward to seeing your creations!
