The Flower Challenge!



(Please scroll down for English)

Tänään minulla on iloisia uutisia - sain nimittäin kunnian liittyä The Flower Challengen Design Teamiin! Olen aivan innoissani tästä, sillä mikäpä olisi minulle parempi haasteblogi kuin kukkahaaste :) Kiitos Viville ja Aileenille tästä mahdollisuudesta ja koko Design Teamille lämpimästä vastaanotosta!

Syyskuussa The Flower Challengessä on mukavan helppo aihe, Anything Goes. Aihe on siis vapaa, kunhan siinä on keskiössä kukka tai useampi. Nyt kannattaa osallistua, sillä meillä on myös palkinto voittajalle - $25:n lahjakortti CAS-ual Fridays Stampsiin.

Käytin kortissani Concord&9thin Painted Rose -leimaa, jonka väritin Polychromoksilla. Taustalle leimasin Hero Artsin ikivanhalla taustaleimalla ja Altenew'n harmaalla musteella suorakaiteen ja tekstileimana käytin Heidin Korttipajan leimaa. Kiinnitin ruusun kohotarroilla, mutta ennen sitä roiskin taustalle hieman kultasuihketta. Lopuksi kiinnitin muutaman kultaisen enamel dotsin koristeeksi.

I have some happy news to share today - I have the huge honour of joining the Design Team over at The Flower Challenge! I am beyond thrilled about this, I love creating with flower stamps so to be able to join The Flower Challenge is just a dream come true. I want to thank Viv and Aileen for this opportunity and the whole Design Team for the warm welcome! :)

But now onto the challenge. We have a nice and easy challenge for September with the theme of Anything Goes. So create whatever your heart desires as long as you use a flower motif. And please do consider joining us as we have a prize for the winner of the September challenge - a gift card of $25 to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

For my first DT card, I used the gorgeous 'Painted Rose' stamp by Concord&9th which I coloured with my Polychromos coloured pencils. For the background I used an old Hero Arts background stamp and some grey Altenew ink. The sentiment stamp is in Finnish and it says 'Congratulating you'. Before adhering my flower with some foam adhesives, I added a few splatters of gold spray with my watercolour brush and as finishing touches I used a few golden enamel dots.



Ja nyt, kurkkaapa The Flower Challenge -blogiin muiden DT:läisten kortteja ja osallistu ihmeessä haasteeseen! Kiitos, kun pyörähdit blogissani! :)

And now, please do pop over to The Flower Challenge to see what my team mates have created, there's loads of inspiration there! Also if you have the chance, please join us this month - there's a prize to be won ;) Thanks for popping by my blog today - have an amazing day! :)
