Hello, crafty friends! Ashley @magmagandme here today with a 3-to-Inspire challenge for you! This month's #gracebox is so colorful and packed with pieces, paper & stickers to play with.
For today's 3-to-Inspire, the categories are:
+ Background: use only the colors in the kit
+ Paper: Fussy cut something
+ Stamp it: use the stamps as a pattern
Here is my take on the challenge:
The first thing I did was the background.
Watercolors picked out to match the paper pieces I loved for this page.
Stripe and splatter - my favorite patterns.
Then I fussy cut a floral burst & a few birds from the 12x12 papers included in the kit.
It takes awhile but it is impactful in a project.
I lay everything out before I glue it down.
Then I added some die cuts that are in the gracebox kit.
I only used two stamps from the set - the little triangle and the word AWESOME.
I liked how stamps add one more layer of interest.
A few outlining shapes and dots here and there.
Finally I added a date stamp & bowed up the fabric (in the kit too!) for the perfect topper.
The colors in this kit truly have me hanging onto summer for dear life.
I hope you'll take the challenge & create something inspiring!
