Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge May 2017


Welcome to the May Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #2, Little Dreamer!  The challenge runs until May 31st and is to use the LIttle Dreamer paper pack or the colors... use the photo of the paper pack below for inspiration:
When I first saw this paper pack I didn't think I was going to need a whole pack so I split it with my mom... um... Mom, I need my other half back...


For this one, I wanted to use this cool watercolored plaid background I made... a technique I learned over at Choux Choux Paper Art a couple weeks ago... it was a ton of fun and here's a link to Lori's blog if you want to check out her video here.  Although when I made mine the "lagoon" stripe was green... there is no green in this paper pack so I took my Zig watercolor markers and added some turquoise on top to match the lagoon instead... I think it worked pretty good!  And aren't the new rainbow and cloud dies from Craftin Desert Divas awesome!!!!!????  


So, I cut the smaller unicorn out of this PML card thinking the larger one wasn't going to fit in this CDD Scalloped Circle, but when I flipped it around there it was... perfect!  Except I forgot that meant my circle was backwards...lol!   Oh well... sorry not sorry!


And I had the perfect sentiment from Lawn Fawn to go with it... on the inside it says (Because I do) ... I meant to take a pic of it and even decorated it a little, but ... I didn't... you can imagine I'm sure!  I wanted to add a little gold so I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment on vellum (so my plaid could show through) and the gold gems instead of the ones that coordinate with the paper pack... 

So thanks for stopping by and hope you play along this week!  Visit Susan and Donna's Blogs to see what they have created for your viewing pleasure and head on over to the Three Amigos Blog and play along!  A badge will be coming soon...
