Just Us Girls challenge. This is challenge #4!! You gals are rockin' the challenges - we LOVE you!
This week our hostess is the delightful and lovely Mona Pendleton. If you have not seen Mona's work, you need to! Mona has developed a wonderful VIDEO for how to make fantastic 3-D tissue paper flowers. SO this week's challenge is to add a 3-D flower to your project. Now, this means you MAY choose to use Mona's technique OR you may have a different 3-D flower you would like to share instead. In either case, we hope you will play along with Just Us Girls. You may be chosen as our top pick of the week, a spot we call, "Chic of the Week." If selected, you receive a special badge to display on your blog!
Mojo Monday Sketch) AND I also made a matching template from the wonderful Lauren Meader. I've been giving the office girls one of the templates filled with just a few sweet treats as a birthday surprise and they are loving them. Somehow the candy is SO much more special when there is a little unique packaging to go with it. This one is filled with Peanut Butter Lindt Truffles! There are 6 of them in here.
This template is the petite version of Pretty Petal Pocket. I created the basket using PTI's Summer Sunshine and Spring Moss cardstock then matted it with varying sizes of the floral paper from PTI's Autumn Abundance. I just love this paper collection - very diverse patterns but fabulous fall colors.
I made my 3-D flower according to Mona's instructions. I chose to use SU! Only Orange ink because the PTI Summer Sunrise color I WANTED to use - well I only own it in a CUBE size and that would have taken me forever to brayer the tissue paper. :-) The SU! ink I had in a full size pad. Good thing the orange went with my paper!
Next - stop by and see what the other members of the Just Us Girls Design Team have cooked up for you this week. You WILL be inspired, I promise.
