Yep! When I signed up for this ATC challenge on Splitcoast Stampers, I have to admit I was a little worried...my style is usually pretty simple, and very often includes flowers - not stuff from the hardware store! But...I had a trip to Home Depot yesterday and found some fun things to play with. Here's what I created:
The "appreciate what is" ATC was made with patterned paper from the brand new DCWV Nursery Stack. Isn't it pretty? I punched out the flowers and stacked them. The center of the flower is made from one of those felt pads that you put under your chair legs to stop them scraping the floor :) I stuck it on and then covered it with some yellow glitter by Doodlebug! The sentiment stamp on both ATCs is by Hero Arts.
For the second card, I colored some washers and nuts with Ranger's Alcohol Inks. I drew the flower stems with my Copics, added some ribbon, assembled the whole thing and here it is! Soooo...even though the challenge was to use hardware store items - I still gravitated towards flowers!! LOL!!
