It's a collaboration week at Shopping our Stash! We are teaming up with Words 2 Scrap By for our challenge this week - when you make a card for SOS, you can enter it at W2SB too. There are so many ways to interpret the challenge theme this week. Here's what inspired it:
So, this month's words celebrate this first full month of spring and come from renowned author and philosopher George Santayana.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Music? Nature? Both? Spoiled for choice with this one!
For me one of nature's most magical creations is the rainbow - so that was my starting point for my card.
Supplies: Distress inks in Barn Door, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves; Palette Noir and clear EP; vellum; Inkadinkado music background stamp; embroidery supplies
I used distress inks to create a watercoloured rainbow background. I added more swipes of colour with a dry brush after creating the initial background for more texture. The sentiment is embossed on vellum and then stitched on with a rainbow of embroidery floss (that took longer than waiting for the background to dry, lol)
I can't wait to see how everyone has fun with this! Check out the SOS crew:
