Our 3rd project of the evening was brought to us by Chrissy.
Recently Chrissy took a road trip to California to meet up with some on-line friends. During her stay she created the colorful background and shared them with us for my card. Everyone’s card in the group was a different color so it was fun to see the different looks.
So as not to cover up the lovely background Chrissy pre-stamped the flower image (so it would be dry for us to work with) onto vellum. We embellished with gems and sequins.
And get a load of this delicate wood flower. Chrissy told us she came across a flea market where one of the vendors was selling wood products and she found these. Actually, she said she found lots of crystal gems there too! I have got to start shopping more with my girlfriends!
Thank you Chrissy for the fun design; and sharing your handmade background and crafty thrift finds!
