Okay, about the card. ;) Aren't these summer sets super fun!!! Today we get to share with you a set designed by Waltzingmouse's very own, uber talented Anya Schrier!! I'm in serious love with this Playful Pinwheel set. It's just super charming and oh so versatile!! Truly!!
My card is based on this week's Waltzingmouse sketch. I thought the pinwheels would be fun to place in a flower pot, so I diecut one using the Spellbinders Flower pot die using Kraft Core. I then ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
For the pinwheels, I took some watercolor paper and did a brown colorwash over it to give them a rustic feel. I then stamped the different patterns over the colorwash.
That's it for my project today. Next stop is the super sweet and talented Becca.
