Creative Knockouts DT

Good morning!  I am SUPER excited to announce that I'm now part of the Design Team over on the Creative Knockouts blog.  Today we have a new challenge for you - Floral Delight.  Our sponsor this week is Fred, She Said Stamps, and I have the pleasure of using their beautiful Tulip Bouquet digi.  This was a bit of a challenge for me, because it's the first floral image I've used.  I'm quite pleased with the finished project:)






The Copics I used are: flowers - YR00, YR15 and YR18; stems/leaves - YG00, YG03, YG17 and G29; pitcher - Y32, YR24 and YR31.

For the card I used a variety of papers from My Mind's Eye 'Stella Rose' line.  I cut 2" strips, and used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the layers at the bottom of the card.  I used ribbon rfom my stash to frame the image, and also behind the image to transition from the paper strips to the top portion of the background.  I used Quick Quotes powder puff chalk in Mango Mai Tai and Tahiti to edge my papers.  Thanks for looking!

Don't forget to head on over to the Creative Knockouts blog to see all of the lovely DT projects, and to play along with the challenge.  Have an awesome day!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Craft Cottage - In the Garden
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Open-Minded Crafting Fun - No Pink, No Red
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
