The Craftroom Challenge

It has been quite a while since I have been able to take part in the fortnightly challenge at The Craftroom.

The current challenge is little different, being driven by an inspiration board from Debi.

I do have a bit of lime green “thing” going at present but chose to take a slightly different tack with my entry. This is the card I have made.

I love water lilies and Monet’s painting of them sprang to mind immediately so I chose to make a small 3-d water lily using a cutting file from The Silhouette store.  It was fun to put together although it was little fiddly owing to the fact that I had reduced the size quite dramatically.  The shape for the stamped sentiment was cut on my Cameo too.

Here is a closer look at the lily.  There is no way this would fit in an envelope for posting so it is likely to sit on my craft table for while, where I can look at it for a bit longer.

Thanks for stopping in to take a look.  Why not grab some inspiration from Debi and join us at The Craftroom.
