OCC...Au Natural

Good Saturday Morning PEEPS!!!

It is time for another new challenge over at the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week our challenge hostess is Linda, the funkie junkie and her challenge for us is:

 Au Naturel with a twist - Au Naturel. Create a project using ONLY neutrals (and gold/silver OR metallics). The main project must use only pale neutrals (ivory, white, beige, tan, grey) with darker neutrals (dark grey, brown, black) as accents only. The twist is to include lace and buttons.

I choose Crumb Cake aka Kraft for my neutral. I used the Stampin' Up Inspired by Nature stamp set. I inked up one of the flowers with whisper white craft ink and used my daffodil delight and old olive markers. I stamped one flower onto the crumb cake piece and then did the same two more times onto some scrap crumb cake. I cut out two of the flowers and added them to the piece with some dimensionals. I embossed another small piece with the vintage wall EF and added it to the bottom portion of the panel.  The sentiment which is from the Stampin' Up Upsy Daisy stamp set was stamped with black stazon. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up.

I added my twist elements, the lace and the button across the panel. I used some sticky to gather the crochet trim and hold it in place. I then threaded some silver cording through the button and tied a bow. I used my glue gun to adhere it to the card. I added two silver pearls to the top corners. That and the silver cord is my metallic! I think I got it all there!

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out.

Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Love the neutral tones you chose - the kraft is so perfect for this challenge. Super texture and I'm drooling over the pleated lace! Super job on the challenge this week.
