Welcome to our March Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop! As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant. If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog Love 2 Create . If you came from Jennifer of 4 Hearts Scrapbooking then you are in the right place!
Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a "BINGO" card!
Here is the BINGO card that our Consultants were given:
The Consultants were told they could make anything they wanted using the Artiste OR Art Philosophy cartridge AND you work off the BINGO card posted above. Basically, you make a "BINGO" by going across, down, or diagonally and you have to use everything in that bingo line.
The buttons are from the Clear Button collection which I inked in pigment ink, then added clear embossing powder and then heat set, so that I had buttons that matched my project. To do this technique you will need tweezers to hold them in place to heat set them. I used Sunset for the large, Cotton Candy for the medium and Pear for the small. I have seen this technique done my a few consultants, but I don't remember where and who, but would like to give credit where credit is due.....
So, I also wanted to make this basket so that it could be versatile, so I stamped a second sentiment from the same stamp set, Happy Mother's Day. The frames are adhered to a straw which I then adhered to a quarter and placed at the bottom of the basket before filling the basket with Easter Grass and Cadbury Creme Eggs.
