Time Out Challenge #85 & Where Creativity Meets C9

I had a bit of a Time Out in my craft room on Sunday ... I earned every moment - two days of 'yard sale' did me in, but gave me a little extra cash for craft supplies:  YAY me!

Here was my inspiration for the day:


Of course, I was inspired by the beautiful hummingbird, but also the gorgeous painted fabrics on the cushions, and the tropical leaves.  Combining them all was the hard part!

For Time Out Challenge #85:

Distress Inks, Concord & 9th; MFT, and Wplus9 are the cast of characters for this card.

Since layers, and layers of Distress Inks, and Distress Oxides were used to create the scene around this gorgeous Concord & 9th bloom, I'm sending this one over to Where Creativity Meets C9, too!


I may have had a teaser post yesterday on I.G. - hope you like this one, too!  Thanks for sharing a bit of your Monday with me! ... oh I'll be back in a few with that teaser...

Spectacular, Michele! Absolutely astounding colors, love the design, love everything about it! Doesn't even feel like several products are used - it feels like just one stamp!
