That's right...it's time for another bloggers challenge with Joan, Melissa, and Sue. It was Joan's turn to send out the images in this round, and she chose Asela's "Daisy Jar", found at Cornish Heritage Farms. I love this image, and had so much fun coloring it with my Copic Sketch markers to resemble Purple Coneflowers. This image is quite large, and I used my largest Oval Nestabilities die to cut it. The image over-lapped the embossing a bit, so I decided to color another of the images that Joan sent, and trim it out with my scissors and hobby blade. I mounted the trimmed blooms to my oval piece with Stampin' Dimensionals. The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Figgy collection. As I was working with my design....I realized that it was looking very familiar to a sketch that Debbie Olsen did a couple of days ago, so I am crediting her with the layout. The bling is Adornit Gems from Eclectic Paperie, and the ribbon is Martha Stewart (a gift from Libby). Be sure to click on the names of the other participants in this challenge, to see their beautiful creations. I can't wait to see them myself!
Thanks for all of the images and special papers, Joan! I enjoyed the challenge very much!
***I would like to share some beautiful RAK's I received.
The first is from Charmaine Ikach. She is so talented, and I love this gorgeous snowflake card in the non-traditional colors. The sparkle and wide satin ribbon really make this extra special. Thanks Charmaine!! Please click on Charmaine's name to visit her blog, and see all of her other beautiful work. (You probably already do. *wink*)
Dawn Griffith. I love the cute images, and how Dawn decorated both of these!! Dawn even has tutorials for these at her blog, that you may find here and here. Thanks so much, Dawn! I will use these along with your tutes, when I make some of the holders myself. :D
Last and not least....I received this soft and pretty card from the very talented Dirty Girl Alum., Valerie Stangle. I really love that patterned paper she used, and how she made the cute little flower pot. It's soooo beautiful (some of my favorite colors)....thanks a bunch, Val!! Click on Val's name to hop over to her blog, and see what she's up to.
Thanks for your visit today! I appreciate it, as always!!
