Inspiration at Crafty Creations
This week at Crafty Creations, the challenge is to create a project based on this beautiful inspiration photo. So many possibilities! The rich colours, the multiple textures... I chose to focus on the subtle festive touches -- the poinsettia towels and the little evergreen wreath. And from there, I got to this:
My first attempt, I stamped and embossed this Christmas postcard image in silver and coloured it in using the colours in the photo. It looked okay, but didn't really do the trick for me. So I tried again, leaving the details uncoloured and letting the deep green and red carry the show.
This week is my last week as a guest designer at Crafty Creations Challenges. Sad? No -- because I'm going to join the design team full time! I'm so excited! Thank you to the fabulous ladies there, especially Peggy and Deena, for making me feel so welcome.
