The Bread Basket has some fun stuff in store for you today, so make sure you start at the beginning of the Hop with Our Daily Bread designs Blog HERE where you can see all the new releases! The Hop goes live at 9:00 AM CST.
If you came here from Chris Olsen's blog, Twinkles Glow With Stamps, you are in the right place! Doesn't she do amazing work???
Kelley is also offering blog candy to three winners today, so be sure to visit all the Breadsticks' blogs to see what is up with that! You will love it!
challenge for this month was to use three colors from Kelley's new line of ink pads. We had to choose our colors before we saw the new set designs, so it could have been a real challenge! But I chose my favorites (had to have a PINK!) and it worked out! I chose Raspberry, Spring Green and Sunflower. At only $3.50, they are a GREAT deal!
Here is what I came up with:
I used Let Us Begin and embossed the flowers with Ranger's Gold EP. I then watercolored the lotus flower with my chosen colors. The lotus is the national flower of India, where Mother Teresa did her life's work and held citizenship. It starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the waters surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.
My designer paper is from the K & Co. Wild Raspberry Collection.
I love this new set and the accompanying Mother Teresa!
