Good day to my faithful readers. It's Friday and that means time for blogger's challenge. Our list mom, Lisa Sommerville gave us a color challenge for this week. We are to incorporate the colors of Red, black and white in what we crafting . You can click HERE to view more artistic creations of other challenge players.
I found this challenge somewhat limiting me due to my recent hand surgery and really wondered what I could create. Lucky for me, synchonocity was on my side, as the first container of patterned paper I opened contained all the goodies I needed and there was the perfect photo just laying on top.
This layout is special to me, as it represents the amusing entertainment that occurs when we get together as a family. The photo was taken at Christmas of my daughter, (who was getting very tired of being pregnant)....She and her grandmother were performing for us, having fun comparing the size of their stomachs...My little mother is so much fun.
The large black matt was cut from my Cricut Machine, I believe it was the Home Accents cartridge.
The flowers in the corner are manufactured by Prima - Alabaster in the Abby line and also Fiesta. I love how it matches the design in my daughter's blouse.
The rhinestones are form Heid Swapp: Ruby Accents and Crafts: Rhinestones.
The red, black and white Cardstock is from Stampin Up
The background was distressed to subdue the brightness of the white cardstock and provide more color harmony by using grey and red Stampin Up Pigment inks.
Stampin Up's Scratch Background stamp and their distress wheels are just perfect for the grungy look. In the past I would habitually distress my backgrounds by hand via swiping the cardstock with inkpads; I love these stamps to achieve this process..
