Easy Craft Projects - Make a project using the following recipe: Paint, a button, and two ribbons
Papercraft Star - Use this image as your inspiration . . .
And I just realized that I messed up on the Easy Crafts Project, so sue me! I like it the way that it is! See if you can find out where I made my mistake, and let me know!
Anyway, here is my card based on the challenges . . .
First, before I share all the supplies and such, let me tell you how I approached the Papercrafts Star portion of this challenge. When I look at the image above, the first thing that I see is light! Bright and airy, light space and that is how I wanted to make my project. But the second thing I saw was those two tiny fuschia blooms in vases - although they are small, they just pop! And although my colors are not exactly the same as the ones in the image, I think my card does show the light and airy feeling - with pops of color - that I wanted it to have! And if you see those two pillows on the sofa, one grey and one yellow, well I brought out those in the center of my flower!

- Due to lack of space, I keep a large (8 oz) bottle of white acrylic paint, and an assortment of small tubes of acrylic paint and mix my own colors. I mixed up that light mulberry or mauve paint, and used a small brush to paint the white Prima flowers. Once they were dry I inked the edges with mulberry colored ink.
- For the paper flower, cut out your shapes, ink the edges, dip the flowers in warm water (just a dip, don't let it sit there!), scrunch up the wet paper, squeeze out excess moisture, open up (carefully), place in microwave for 40 to 60 seconds on high, or until dry. These took 40 seconds!
I think this is a pretty card, with lots of textures, and would be great for any number of occasions. Thanks for visiting today, and come back soon!!! Blessings, Becky
