To jump-start today's project I first stopped by SCS to take a look at this week's CAS Challenge. This week we are to feature a Cute Bug. How does one's creativity leap from bugs to pitchers I will never know but this is what I came up with! I don't have a ladybug die from IO right now, so I just made my own from the Primitive Gingerbread Accessories. I love using the little dies that come with the Primitive Gingerbread and the Accessories in different ways! I took one of the little circular die-cuts and used it for the ladybug head and then the heart became her body!
Next, I pulled out the background I created a few weeks ago with Distress Inks for a Watercolor Wednesday Challenge. At the time, I didn't want to waste any ink that was left on the palette so I added a couple more ink colors, spritzed with water, and soaked up all the juicy ink with the cardstock. The result was a background of jewel tones and citron. I pulled the background from my stash and decided they would make interesting pitchers! I used both the Large Pitcher and Small Pitcher. Next, I added a Large Frame around my artsy pitchers and added the happy birthday greeting from Card Sentiments.
The IO team is featuring projects with Die-cuts today so hop on over to the Impression Obsession Blog to see all the lovely projects!
Thanks for popping by! I hope you have a safe and healthy week!
