I am so glad that I had the chance to play this week in the moxie fab tuesday trigger. I have been sooo busy the last couple of weeks that I didn't get the chance to play at the last two triggers :( But when I saw the picture for this weeks trigger I said oo la la this one is for me:)
Here is the trigger...........
Can you say HAPPY!! I love this picture and the colors just scream at me because they are my favorites ..... aqua mist, sweet blush, berry sorbet, summer sunrise a bit of hibiscus, a tad bit of orange zest and let's not forget a wee bit of spring moss. Total Moxie fab!!!!
So when I saw this picture I KNEW I had to make these crepe paper flowers that have been on my to do list.
Problem - I live in the sticks and the only crepe paper I can find is white and a few primary pastels that were not matching what I wanted.
So what does this girl do to fix the problem??? I dyed the white with the ink colors I wanted:) It takes a bit of time but I got the exact colors I was looking for.
So here is what I came up with............
This card totally makes me happy. I love how these flowers turned out. I just ran about 15 to 20 layers of crepe paper through my cuttle bug with this flower die and viola!! flowers in different sizes. The two smaller flowers are from k&company that I have had for about a year and decided to use up. The chipboard "HI" are heidi swapp letters from my stash.
Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!!
