Well this is exciting!!
My first time Blog Hopping with the Crazy Crafters!!
Our theme for this Blog Hop was to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Martha Groeger.
When I went to Martha's blog over at:
I was taken by the start of her blurb in the About Me section.
Mit einem Lächeln...
... geht es sich viel leichter durchs Leben.
Which translates to:
With a smile...
.....it is much easier through life.
Wow! The simplicity, but impact, of this statement !!
When looking through Martha's blog entries and her creativity, I was taken with this card.
It sung to me like the statement above - simplicity but impact.
I toyed with some designer series papers until it struck me - to get that impact I was after I was going to keep it simple and bold using black and white and a pop of colour.
The Petal Passion DSP was perfect with it's black and white colour palette.
I used the Petal Palette stamps for the roses and coloured them using watercolour pencils and a blender pen.
I finished it off with some metallic thread, a glitter die-cut and some glitter dots - adding that little bit of bling!
I hope you like it !!
