Paper Girls Challenge #12

Charity is the host of challenge #12 at The Paper Girls Challenge.
She challenged us to use a mesh bag (what you get when you buy a big bag of apples or onions) on our creation. 

Can you find the mesh on my card? Well, technically it's not on the card. BUT - I did use the mesh as a mask to create my pink background! I used repositionable spray adhesive to attach the mesh to my card front. Then I misted some pink spray and then removed the mesh leaving a white pattern.

This card is for my 5-year-old niece so I decided to use this cute little stamp from Crafter's Companion from their Swalk collection. I colored her in with watercolor pencils and I made a bouquet of 5 flowers popped up with foam. The stem is just a skewer painted green. I had actually wanted to add some stick pin banners but it didn't fit well so I decided to turn it into a bouqet instead.

I wish the lighting was better when I took these photos - the colors look so washed out online. Oh well!

Please stop by and play with us at The Paper Girls Challenge blog! We always have a fun crafty prize to give away!

I'm entering this into Crafter's Companion current challenge which is Anything Goes.

This is adorable, and I LOVE that mesh/non-mesh background!

Ohhhh you had me looking. LOL Great idea - she didn't tell you HOW to use the mesh bag. That's thinking outside the box.

Thanks for playing along with us at the Crafter's Companion Challenge blog!!

Wow, that's a really hard challenge. I love how you used it (or didn't use it)--the masking looks super cool. The stamp is totally adorable! Great coloring. Every time I see watercolor pencils used, I always wonder what I'm doing wrong--the shading is so fabulous!
