The past few weeks have been filled with more sewing projects for my mother's birthday and father's day. Thankfully, my sewing machine has been a sweet dream - not fussing at all (all you sewers out there know what I mean). I hope to post some photos and a couple of tutorials this coming week. This weekend, I'm taking a little time away from my sewing machine to join in on all of the fun over at Papertrey Ink.
CHALLENGE #1: Create something drawing inspiration from this photo.
Here's my interpretation of the picture. The vibrant gradient colours had the biggest impact on me. Using colours from my ink stash as closely matched as possible to the photo, I inked a simple Papertrey Ink white card using Flower Fusions stamp set. Each flower was finished with a simple button. A butterfly was added as a detail just as the butterfly coat hooks are in the photo.
Challenge #2: Make-It-Monday Reverse Masking

Now - back to my sewing machine! Hope your world is colored with bright cheery fun this weekend.
P.S. Check back later in the week. More new things coming to my Etsy store Otter Hill Designs. Shop for charity - all profit is donated to World Vision to support women across the world.
