Craft Hoarders Anonymous March Challenge

Craft Hoarders Anonymous March Challenge and an Important Announcement

Hello Friends!

It’s the second Monday in March, and time for another great challenge over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.  This month we are doing a great color challenge based on this inspiration photo:


Oh, Spring!  Green growing things and sweet baby leaves on trees and white puffy clouds in the sky!  What a perfect color palette for this time of year!  Yeah…I’m loving this color challenge.

CHACB March 2015 01I wanted to pick up on the creamy green/white tones in the color challenge and to really keep true to the spirit of Craft Hoarders, everything on this card came from my little scrap cart.  I have no idea what these papers are…or where they came from.  I can tell you that I made the roses with my Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms die and some pearlized cream paper.  The ribbon is moss green micro ribbon and iridescent white metallic string.

CHACB March 2015 03I colorized the vintage black and white photo using my alcohol ink pens.

CHACB March 2015 02The roses were painted with bundled sage distress ink and then coated with Clear Rock Candy Distress paint.  The leaves were spritzed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist.  I painted the gold metal roses with the Bundled Sage paint as well.

CHACB March 2015 05I followed a wedding or anniversary theme and added a little stamping on the inside of the card.  Easy peasy!

Now for the important announcement.  Sadly, this will be the last challenge over at Craft Hoarders.  Gloria, our chief hoarder in charge and fearless leader has taken on some demanding design assignments that have really stressed her schedule.  In order to maintain a healthy balance between family, health and work, she is having to make some hard choices and step away from some of her crafting obligations.  Shutting down the challenge was not an easy decision, but it is the right decision for her….and we wish her well.  You can read Gloria’s personal statement and all the details over at the Craft Hoarders Blog.

So, let’s go out with a bang!  Dig deep into your crafty hoard and come up with something totally fabby for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous March Challenge.  You have until midnight PT on April 12th to link your project up to the CHACB blog.  We’ll be popping by to leave you some bloggy love and pick our favorites for one final time.

To everything there is a season, right?

Be sure to visit the rest of the team’s final projects…I know you will be inspired:

Amber ♥ Christy ♥ Debbie Donna ♥ Ginny ♥ Glenda ♥ Gloria (blog owner)
Pam ♥ Teresa  Wendi

Now go get your craft on!

    Nice job, and the use of the green, one of my favourites. Is that a photo from “Found Relatives”? Worked beautifully with your project! Have a great day.
