Copic Creations Challenge #8


Well, here it is the middle of July already and it's time for our eighth Copic Creations Challenge. The theme for this challenge is Botanicals, and our sponsor is Flourishes. My card is made with the Stamp Simply Thank You set from Flourishes. I began by brayering my CS with Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue and Amethyst. I then stamped the "Thank You" sentiment and one tulip on the brayered CS and then colored three more tulips in the various colors, cut them out, and adhered them with dimensionals. (Please check the CC site for colors used.) I stamped the main Thank You sentiment and cut it out with a Labels Four Nestie, sponged lightly with Amethyst. Flourishes has some beautiful botanical stamp sets, and the CC DT has done some beautiful cards featuring their sets, so be sure to check them out and then grab some Copics and play along.
One more thing.....I have a new logo on the left side of my blog titled TMITA, and if you click on it you can participate in a chance to win some fabulous blog candy. The blog candy is from the very talented Nina of Having an Art Attack, and I encourage you to check out what she's giving away. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful week.
