All that Scraps Wednesday Challenge


It's time for another Wednesday challenge with the girls from All That Scraps and this week we're using text! Use a piece from a newspaper, or a page from an old book... just include some text somewhere in your design.
My "text" shows up in my flower that I created, using a tutorial from Mercy's blog. My friend Bar calls these "poofy" flowers, and I have to agree! I love the dimension this creates on the card front. I alternated the layers of my flower with pages from an old book and pieces of Indian Summer paper from Basic Grey. I inked up all the pieces by doing direct-to-paper with some Vintage Photo distress ink to age it a little. Then I used stamps from the All Women Sentiments stamp set from Amy R at CC Designs. I thought the reference to "words" in the sentiment was quite clever for this challenge! (yeah... patting myself on the back a little with that one! LOL)
Check out the challenge and play along this week! Christine always has a great little prize for one random participant, so how can you go wrong? Let's see what you can come up with!

As always, thank you for stopping by! Your visits and comments are very much appreciated!
