No novella in this post today, I promise. It's been a busy week for me, interrupted by migraines and housework! Hate it when things get in the way of crafting, don't you?! The cue card at CASology this week is flower. Wasn't sure if I could play along. Then, a very loud PING went off. It's a little out of the box, as you'll soon see.
And here's my out-of-the-box, in-the-box flower:
I used a Bazzill gray for the base, then scraps of dark gray and green. The sentiment is from PTI and I used MME ink. Now....as to the flower....and here's where the ping came into play. I took some Karen Foster Honeydew twine and let it curl around naturally and pressed it onto a 1/2" glue dot. Funky! Then, as is my custom, I ripped off the legs of a Crate Paper brad, added another glue dot, and voila!, done! The photo doesn't do it justice. The twine is nearly as green as the mat, and the brad is actually very close in color to the gray base. Go figure...Ah, well. Have a wonderful weekend, and happy dances everyone.
