It's been a little while since I played EtsyInspired Challenge. I have actually never won any prizes. Since the pick is from a random draw, I just haven't had any luck yet (details here). BUT that's
too bad OK...I just love the varieties of inspirations from the Etsy shop. They keep my creative juice flowing...That is THE BONUS! I LOVE this beautiful Mommy Series The Heather Headband and I chose it as my inspiration.
And the timing can't be any more perfect as I came upon this awesome video by Dawn McVey. Check it out if you haven't! It's so simple and so much fun! I experimented with the poorly printed text paper (from my recycle bin) and stamped Raindrop background on it and cut out several circles using two sizes of punches (just for extra poofiness and dimensions). I then distressed the edges (just like the edges of the headband flowers). Love the result!!
For example, the label 8 diecut was a disastrous practice that's gone BAD! I didn't think I could ever use it again...somehow it look "fine" in this!! I think that was the happiest moment when I made the card. Putting the pieces together was such a JOY!! Thanks for coming by to look at this card made of recycled materials. I should do the recycling more often instead of keep going to Michael's...(LOL)!
