If you haven't played with us before, we are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from the South Pacific. Challenges are shown and entered via our Facebook Group page. If you don't belong, and would like to, click here. Don't forget to answer the two easy questions you'll be asked when you ask to join the group.
Each challenge, Top Picks and a winner are chosen by the crew and the winner offered a chance to Guest Design with us for a future challenge.
If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.
Like others on the Crew, the colours drew us to a floral set. I've used Forever Blossoms, although the sentiment is from Timeless Tulips.
I started by gold embossing the large floral image onto Shimmery White cardstock, then colouring it with ink and water painters. I used some of the left over ink and a water painter to flick a fine mist of Mossy Meadow onto the Whisper White front, which I then embossed using the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. If you've not got that one on your wish list, add it right now - it's fantastic!
The striking black lattice die cut comes is one of the dies in the Many Medallions dies.
