WWC 242 - Marsha's "All About Occasions" challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Marsha is our hostess this week with an "All About Occasions" challenge.

My card is a Birthday card for my friend who recently turned 65.  I wanted something a bit elegant for her.  

I used Altenew Playful Plumeria and the matching dies.  To make my background I used some Anko Pump Paints.  This brand is a KMart brand and these are spray paints.  There were three bottles - Gold, Bronze and Silver - all for $5 so great value.  I took some black card and sprayed the bronze and silver onto it.  I then die cut a circle with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Dies and added the black piece behind it.  I die cut the branch from the bronze card and trimmed it down a little.  I stamped the two Plumeria flowers in Altenew's ink (Sunray, Chamomile, Snapdragon adn Marigold) and die cut them out and added to the branch.  The sentiment is from Rosie's Studio (a New Zealand based company).  

Come join in the fun.  Check out the projects that the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Mondays at 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (Tuesdays at 11.00am NZ time) to link up your project.
