Lemon and Lime

altenewsept1_1I love the inspiration photo from the Altenew challenge, with the white, lime and lemon colors.from-the-craft-roomI  started by re-creating the distressed wallpaper background by painting on some lemongrass twinkling H20 watercolor paints.  It has a really beautiful shimmer to it, which is hard to capture in the photos, but it’s just lovely.

I used the Hennah elements Altenew stamp set and colored the flowers with copic markers.  I used the sentiment stamp from the set, but made my own banner and hand drew the black lines to ensure the banner stood out and tied in with the white and black leaves.  I have put a little white cotton behind the flowers and banner.altenewsept1_2And, before you go, I have to share a funny story with you.  My kids (6 and 8) were talking in the car on the way to school today about their special talents with school work.  Jorja (miss 6) said “Xavier, you are smarter than me”.  Xavier replied “Yes, I would be the smartest, if Mum wasn’t in our family”.  Hehehe, they crack me up.  I had to laugh, that was just the sweetest thing ever and poor Dad didn’t even get a look into that conversation and he’s the one with multiple degrees…

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and checking out my creation today…
