Wee Florist

WELCOME to Kit and Clowder's monthly challenge and this month we are being sponsored by  Whimsy Stamps

The color BLUE is this month's challenge!

I chose to use an image called "Wee Florist" by Sylvia Zet, sold on the Whimsy Stamps online store.  Isn't she a cutie?  Some of my pieces I bought from Live and Love Crafts such as my Maja Design papers (Vintage Spring Basics), the Melissa Frances resin heart corner piece, my clock paper clip, the gorgeous lace and rose lace, the Wild Orchid Craft flowers and my "Cute" TH bulb.  

The leaves are chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company, a new online chipboard company in Canada.  With our dollar on the rise, it's nice to have the choice to stay local.  Woo hoo!!  I covered the leaves with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  Love how they turned out!! 

This doily border is also from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  This time I covered the chipboard with white TH distress paint and then some white frantage. 

Voila!  My colored image!  This is my "before" image I used to gauge how I do while taking Alyce's (Kit and Clowder) classes because some time down the road I will do an "after".  Should be interesting!!  Also, don't you just wish when you took a picture that it was as vibrant in the photo as in real life?  That annoys me!!  Maybe I need a different program....or a new house with my own photo booth!!  hee hee

SO!!  For this month of course there is a prize to be had and Whimsy Stamps is so kindly offering:


They have all kinds of cool stuff to spend your money on!  Papers, stamps, dies oh my!!  The great thing about the challenge is just because we are sponsored by Whimsy, doesn't mean you have to use an image to qualify, although they do have some cute digi's.  It can be any image so whatever you are creating this month, stop by and pop it onto Kit and Clowder!!  Don't forget to add you BLUE to it though!


PS - Don't forget about my blog candy HERE!  I'm giving away one of Alyce's coloring class!!
