Reflections and Puddles.
Hello, hello, hello!
It's Friday and it's Recipe Challenge time at PaperWorks Company. This week, it's "Rain drops keep falling on my head" -- have puddles/ rain and something reflective.
Man, this stumped me for a while. The easiest solution would've been to use this stamp but I like to torture, errr, challenge myself sometimes. Because I'm such a glutton for punishment, I didn't want to use a stamp I've already used a lot.
I colored up Abigail C - Spring Blooms and altered her a little. I added water drops from the watering can and colored in a small puddle underneath the plants. There's that 'puddle/ rain' part of the challenge.
For the 'reflection,' I thought about paper piercing the watering can to make it look metal and reflective. I stickled it instead because I found these mirror embellishments from a company called Home Deco. It kinda looks like a flower, a water splatter, and a star combined.
The other part that was hard for me was finding a sentiment/ quote that was appropriate for the card. I don't have a lot of sentiment stamps so I like to hand-write sometimes. I found this quote and thought it was quite fitting.
"I'm an instant star.
Just add water and stir."
-- by David Bowie.
I apologize - I've lost my supply list for this card and the many more I've made for tomorrow's post :(. I hope to locate it soon and add it here! Make sure you come back tomorrow for the PWCO October Release Blog Hop!
