Just Because

           Hi there. I have a card to share that I made for the Ellen Hutson Pin Challenge. The Classroom on her blog gives us a picture to inspire us, and whatever we see in that picture that inspires us is what we base our creation on. If you want to join in click HERE and go to the classroom to find the Pin Sights Challenge.

This picture inspired me with its colors, and there are a lot of them, so I chose a few. Then you have to use an Essentials By Ellen item on your creation, I chose the absolutely gorgeous BOLD BLOSSOMS Stand alone die. Here is what I came up with.....

First I picked some Distress Oxides to blend. I used Seedless Preserves, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. I blended them onto smooth white cardstock and then diecut the flowers and leaves. I thought they would look best on Kraft Cardstock (from the picture) and decided to frame that with Indigo Blue. Then I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s Just Because Stamp Set and used the same Indigo ink. Next I stamped over that with Versamark Ink and Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. For a final touch I added Clear Wink of Stella to the top layer of the flowers.

Hope you like my creation and thanks for visiting,
