EXCITING news . . . My Besties Aussie's style

I have some EXCITING NEWS!

I am thrilled to announce that I am Guest Designer this month at the

The theme for the September 2017 Challenge is Spring + Flowers

~~~*~~~*~~~

Today I had the pleasure of colouring and creating with the super cute Sherri Baldy's My Besties image img830 to make a cheery card.


I sized the image on my Silhouette Cameo to fit inside an oval, surrounded by a pretty scalloped layer.  I printed the image on X-Press It Blending card, heat set, cut the oval image panel with my Cameo and coloured with Copic markers.  Then I decided that I needed even more flowers, so I printed the image again, several times, in different sizes to give a variety of sizes of each flower.  I coloured each flower, fussy cut then went around the edges with a black ink marker.

I used my Cameo to cut a black oval layer, slightly larger than the image panel, then a green scalloped layer to frame them both.  I matted a card base with green textured cardstock, black textured cardstock then pretty leafy patterned paper, topped off with the image panel layers.  I used liquid adhesive to adhere all the layers securely in place.

I die cut a variety of leaves and flourishes in green and black textured cardstock, layered them together, slightly offset for shadowy dimension, then adhered them in place around the image panel.  Next came the fun of layering the fussy cut flowers.  I fiddled around with the flowers until I was happy with their placement then took a bundle of black foam dots, adhering them under each flower, some had a single foam dot, others had two layered together, others had three, so the flowers sat at different heights when clustered together.



What do you think?

Does img830 say "Spring + flowers" to you?

Here are another couple of pics ...



NOW it's YOUR turn!
