NEW COPIC CREATIONS CHALLENGE! "BOTANICALS" by FLOURISHES!!






Check it out! Love this set from FLOURISHES called "Sweet Violets"! Flourishes is sponsoring our challenge for July 15th on the Copic Creations blog! I used some sweet "memory box " dp and punched out a butterfly with a ms punch. My copics used were:



BV00, BV02, BV04 on the flowers..starting with the lightest color first--then YG11, BG93, G21 and Y15. Okay,..so why did I mix the greens so much? Well, that is the beauty of Copics! When you dont have all the right trios you can improvise some! I have cut out a few of the leaves and put them on with dimensionals, then I added a few little crystals! Be sure to check out all the samples from the Copic dt blog and all the GORGEOUS stamps at FLOURISHES! tfl! :)

Hello Jane..I'm so sorry have been away...have not even caught my blog up...it was a TOUGH race and it ended Friday. I found out Monday I made the team, Rusty Pickle DT. Crystal left Monday for the Army so that was hard...and we have been canning and freezing every veg/fruit around. Too busy!! I have missed ya and want you to know I hope things will settle back down now. I always LOVE your creations and looks like you have been a busy girl. Hugs, Thanks for all the support!! Take Care, Dawn (When are you coming to Charlotte?)
