Hello all and I hope you are enjoying the relatively nice weather and the rest of your weekend! I
m back today with a quick post for this week's MIM, which was hosted by Lizzie Jones. This week we were challenged to create vibrant and bright backgrounds, which we would then soften with vellum. Here's my take:
I began by choosing the lovely and adorable Wee Folk Mini Market Kit released this month by Betsy Veldman, aka Papercrafting Genius Extraordinaire! :) I used various stamps from the set and stamped them randomly in the following colors: SSS Audrey Blue, Memento Rose Bud & Tangelo, Lawn Fawn's Freshly Cut Grass and Sunflower, and finally Hero Arts' Neon Purple. I then layered it with PTI's beautiful and high quality bitty dot vellum, which was cut using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Large Rectangles. I cut out a tag from Tag Sale and matted it with a stitched circle from MFT. I threaded through some fuchsia ribbon and tied it with PTI's button twine. Then to accent it, I used one of the adorable wooden buttons that comes in the kit. I then die cut the deer and a couple butterflies and adhered to card panel. Then the sentiment, also from the kit, was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Tinsel Gold Embossing Powder. And I'm done! Here is a close up of the focal point:

And here is a detailed shot of the button and ribbon:And that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by and spending a portion of your day with me! As always, craft on! :)
