Hello! The new TCP Tuesday challenge was posted yesterday by our Hostess With The Mostess, Jen and it's a beautiful inspiration challenge. Definitely check it out on Jen's blog or in the TCP Forum on SCS!
I chose to go with the calm, earthy colors from the inspiration photos as well as the CAS feel that they have.
I had a hard time getting the colors to show correctly in the picture - the dark color is brown, not black. I used several CutUps dies from The Cat's Pajamas for this one, Circus Panels, Circus Border, Pom Pom Flower, and the sentiment flag from the Easy Rosette CutUps.
I used the Pom Pom Flower die slightly differently. I started with some yummy Felt from The Cat's Pajamas and only used about 1/3 of the die cutting the edges so they would be thinner. Then I took a fairly large glue dot and starting in the middle, wound the flower around much the same way you would for a seam binding flower. It made a slightly flatter, more daisy-like flower. The brown button was then just glued in center. The sentiment is from Simply Said, a definite go-to set for me!
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you'll give this week's challenge a try - be sure to leave a link on Alma's blog if you do!
