Find Beauty

A few weeks ago I got together with the PNW Crafters for the first time over at Amy's house.  Yay!  It was lots of fun with lots of chatting, sharing and crafting.  Katie (I think) had brought along a Hero Arts sentiment which I stamped a couple of times to play with later.  And play I did. 

I used one of my new Memory Box dies, coloring it with Copics.  I thought a bold b/w stripe paper would spark it up nicely but didn't have any so worked up my own.  The MISTI helped a lot with this to allow me to stamp multiple times for uniform coverage and easy alignment.  I popped up the main panel with sticky fun foam and adhered the flower stem in just a couple of spots.  Love how this turned out!

The Details:  Hero Arts sentiment, MFT plaid background builder, Memory Box die, Copics, PTI 140lb white cardstock base, Recollections 110lb white cardstock panel

I'm entering this in TIME OUT #35 Nature (without animal twist), Paper Players #254 CAS

  5. Simply gorgeous, Toni ... those coloured blooms pop beautifully off all that lovely white space ... fabulous against that strip of perfectly stamped stripes! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
