For todays post, I thought I'd play along with the Fabulous Ladies of CR84FN and their latest Color Challenge #29! What gorgeous colors they have this week, I tell ya! Couldn't help but play along! 8-) Plus it gave me the perfect excuse to try out my new lights and light tent that just arrived this past Monday. I had a bit of trouble with the tent and my camera, So I will wait to use that when my Darling Hubby is home and we can use his awesome digital camera instead. However, using just the lights with their diffuser covers worked fabulously. Let me tell you, they really made a huge difference in the quality of my pictures. Wow, very exciting! 8-) I just have to give a big shout out of thanks to my friend, the Wonderfully talented, Miss Sue Lelli who recommended them to me. Thank you Sue! 8-)
I stamped my favorite Flourishes Gerber Daisy's onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo black and did a bit of masking to add a cute little butterfly from the same set. I colored them up with my trusty Copics using a few of the Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. I embossed my kraft BG with the help of an embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. Then I put a nice little embossed edge on my image with my Score Pal and matted it up with a combination of plum and light plum CS from my stash and some beautiful digi DP from Sassy Designs; a recommendation by my friend and DT Coordinator over at Stamps R Us, the Fabulously talented, Miss Jan Hunnicutt. Thanks Jan! Sassy Designs is having a huge sale right now, only a dollar a set! SO if you like digi DP, go and check them out before the sale ends.... ~Now to add some bling to my cute little Butterfly, I used Star Dust Stickels & after that dried a bit, I stamped my Impression Obsession sentiment right below my sweet Gerber Daisy bouquet using Memento Rich Coco. And that's just about it, I added some ivory seem binding from my stash, attached a fun little plum button with a bit of hemp cord, popped up my main image with some dimensionals and added a few pearls to finish it all up. And that makes three for the series.. I previously made one in sunny golden yellow shades, that you may well remember, but I also created another one in gorgeous shades of pink for my Darling Hubby's Mom.
Hope you all have a fabulous day & thanks so much for visiting! 8-)
