Howdy do! Are you staying cool in this heat wave?....110 heat index today..... Good reason to stay inside and be crafty and join us at Our Creative Corner for our challenge this week. Sarah Gough is our hostess this week, and the theme is All the B's. You need to use her 4 B's: Black, Bling, Buttons and Bows. It's not as hard as you'd think. Check out all the DT's creations here for inspiration.
I decided to add to the B theme....a bit literally....with Botanical but use it in an unexpected way. Instead of making it vintagy or shabby....the natural style for a botanical creation....I tried my hand at a CAS type creation, keeping it simple with limited embellishments....it goes against my natural instincts.... I was inspired by Cath at Moxie Fab ....to add this final B....with her current challenge, Fanatical about Botanical.
I kept it fairly simple and like it that way....surprise.... The bee image is from an embellie package from Pink Paislee. It looked like a flashcard for a 1st grader. I cut out the image and added a little bit of black Stickles...though it's hard to tell....for some bling shimmer on the bee and along the black edges of the image. Enough to add some shimmer, but still keeping it simple. Now it's your turn, beat the heat and join me for both challenges!
