HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARNELL!!
Please join us in celebrating Darnell's Birthday!!
One more part to this special event.
The team has made special cards for Darnell's birthday,
along with our Guest Designer Leslie,
and several Featured Designers (friends from the retreat).
During our retreat, Darnell (Dolly to us) was up early one morning
and decided she wanted some frozen blueberries.
Some how she spilled almost the whole, Costco-sized bag of
blueberries all over the floor.
Bonnie snapped these pictures.
See the swipe of blueberries on the right photo?? We couldn't find a broom so we grabbed
a large piece of card stock to pick up the berries. As they thawed, the blueberry juice
"smooshed" on the cardstock in a lovely design that looked perfect for card making.
Well, without Dolly knowing, we kept that piece of blueberry smoosh and cut it up.
Each Designer has used one piece in making Dolly's birthday cards. :)
And here's what I came up with using a piece of Darnell's special smooshed BLUEBERRY cardstock:
I thought it was a lovely piece of cardstock and wanted to show as much of it as possible (nice job Darnell!!), so I went with a small image, using PB's Golden Dance stamp, and water colored the bouquet of flowers in several shades of blue and purple inks with my Aqua Painter. I fussy cut the image out after it dried and pop dotted it to Darnell's lovely background and finished with a simple sentiment banner embossed in white on Night of Navy cardstock. Here's a closer look at the flowers:
This was such a fun little bouquet of flowers to color up for you Darnell, and I hope it brings lots of Birthday smiles to your face!
We'd love it if you'd join us in wishing the lovely Darnell a very happy birthday, and water coloring up a bouquet of flowers for her...BLUEBERRY smooshed background is optional!! You can check out what the rest of the DT and some very special guests came up with using the same background right HERE. This challenge is open till the 24th, and we'd love to see you in the gallery!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
