The Shabby Tea Room-Week #47-"Get Creative"


Happy Sunday!

As the weekend comes to a close, I had fun staying at home yesterday and making another card. We got more snow again with a level 2 for the county. So, going out shopping for more craft supplies for me was a "no-no". But, there is always time for that, right? :-) This card is for http://www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/ The challenge is asking for one to "get creative" with no patterned paper allowed and your own handmade embellishments.  I kept the card simple.  The background was stamped with one of my favorite Inkadinkadoo stamps.  I used my blender pen to fill in the butterflies with SU inks.  The flower was made with coffee filters and sponged on Ranger Inks.  I couldn't help but add a few blings around the flower and on the butterflies.  This was a fun challenge for me to think outside the box.  And I enjoyed looking at all the entries...so many lovelies!  Thank you, Shabby Tea Room!

  1. You stamped the background and colored it. You picked the perfect colors; they go smoothly into one another.And I love that. And your handmade flower? Gorgeous! Your card is beautiful!
    Enjoy your Sunday; the advantage of not being able to shop is get rid of your stash. And if you use a lot of your stash, you also have another reason to shop! :)
