It's Monday and you know what that means? It's time for another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show! Yep, we do one every week. Gotta love starting the week off with a dose of inspiration. What's in it for you? A chance to win a $50 shopping spree over at Simon Says Stamp, of course! They have all of the latest products in and I just spied the new Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Collection Pack in the store! Whooot!
This week the challenge invites you to explore your feminine side. Hey Girl, why don't you get your craft on and join us?
As most of you know, I have three girlies at home, so we are well in touch with our inner princesses around here! Although this was an easy topic for me, I was eager to spice it up with a bit of non-traditional colors. Can primary colors be girlie? Let's find out...
A bit of watercolor paper and paint at the ready, let's play!
I just love how a bold color can appear soft when in watercolor form.
Red, Yellow, and Blue. So pretty:I think our painting needs a bit of a once over with the Sizzix, don't you?
Oooooh, YES! I like it!
Do I have some brand new patterned paper from the American Crafts Shoreline collection? Why yes I do, and it will go perfectly with my watercolor flowers.
Not to mention this fabulous picture of my little girl all dressed up like her favorite princess:
Let's get those flowers on the page!
Photo all nestled in...
Oh, I am loving this!
Time to stamp a title:
And some fun frames:
All cut out!
Before I get those on the page, that picture needs a patterned paper friend and this gorgeousness will do quite nicely:
We mustn't forget the washi:
All layered up!
And tucked around:
That title needs a little color:
And some foam squares:
But, even with that...
I still felt like I needed more of a title, so after some hand written and cut-out words, along with some Heidi Swapp banners, brads, sequins, ink splatters, arrows, and pen work...
I shall call it finito!So, can primary colors be girlie? I think so!
