Pinspired - Crafter's Companion Joint Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pinspired - Crafter's Companion Joint Blog Hop!  From May 3 - 5, we are showcasing Crafter's Companion stamps from Sheena Douglass' A Little Bit Floral collection. You have TWO chances to win! You can hop around and comment on all of the blogs for one chance to win a gift certificate from Crafter's Companion (May 3 - 5, 2013). 

For my card, I used two gorgeous blooms from Sheena's A Little Bit Floral Dahlia stamp set.  I stamped the smaller, half opened flower image in multiple colors to create my background.  The larger stamp was colored with three watercolor pink pencils.  To blend the colors, I brushed over the image with a little bit of water.  The sentiment stamp is from Sheena Douglass' A Little Bit Scenic Provence stamp set.



For a second chance to win, you can play along with Pinspired Challenge Blog!.  Using the image below, create a project and post it using InLinkz on the Pinspired Blog. You have until May 9, 2013 to participate for a chance to win a gift certificate from Crafter's Companion.That's 9 whole days to play along!!!! Inspirational photos are for you to interpret anyway you want. You can take from the colors, the style or the technique - whatever floats your boat! You can also feel free to make any kind of craft you want as well, whether its a card, layout or altered item. If you create and comment on the Blog Hop, that is two chances to win!
