It’s time for another blog hop with the Paper Adventures Team! Our guest designer this month is Sharon Dalton. Welcome Sharon, thanks for joining us on our team blog hop.
This month’s theme is using a photo for inspiration. This amazing photo was taken by my lovely friend Siobhan Fitzsimmons.
Now this is one spectacular photo! It reminds me of last year when I visited the Nannup Tulip Festival and I was lucky enough to capture this photo….
It’s amazing how similar the colours are! I love bees! We have plenty that visit our garden and if I ever see one struggling in nature I always help them out. Such beautiful insects. I love them.
The card I have made today, features two bees and some flowers from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set. This set is one of my all time favourites.
I used Sahara Sand as a card base and used the leaf embossing die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. I thought the honeycomb embossing folder worked for this theme with some Lovely Lipstick flowers and Old Olive leaves. Anyone who knows me knows I love the leaf punch so I have used that on this card too with some vellum to create some soft extra layering.
Lately I have been using my fine metallic thread to add a little extra something to my cards. This card is no exception, I have used some gold metallic thread behind one of my friendly bees. I also couldn’t resist placing a gold faceted gem to the centre of one of the flowers. These are super pretty and sparkly!
I jumped in on this blog hop last minute and I am so glad that I did. I’m happy with my efforts coming up with something using this lovely photo inspiration.
Next up on the blog hop is our Guest Designer, Sharon Dalton. Lets go see what amazing project she has made for us.
Enjoy your weekend,
