Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. For this challenge this week create a card with:
  • Die Cut image
  • Colors of purple and white
  • Textured layer
  • Leaves

My card for the challenge is 6x6" square.  I used the Crafter's Workshop "Mini Curl Frame" template and Liquitex Modeling Paste to create the background.  As soon as the Modeling Paste was dry, I used the Purple Pan Pastels to go over the raised parts of the design.  To mute it a little, I then went over it with the light pink Pan Pastels.  I used the tools that come with the Pan Pastels.  In the center of this frame, I added the Cheery Lynn "Cape Cod Doily".  I did not punch out all the die cut pieces - only the daisy in the center, then added a piece of purple card stock to the back so the daisy was show cased.

The daisies were created with the new Cheery Lynn "Black Eyed Susan" dies.  I colored the center of the daisies with the Pan Pastels then used a marker to draw in the lines.  The leaves behind the flowers were die cut using the Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" die.  The flowers and leaves were shaped using the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit.  In the corners, I added two Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" corners.

 I hope you will join us this week for our challenge.  I want to remind you that each time your name is drawn for the weekly challenge winner, it will be placed in the drawing for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens that will be drawn at the end of the year.
