Happy 4th of July to all my blogging buddies. I hope you all are out enjoying this wonderful weekend. We are going to go to our local parade this morning, BBQ and then go to the marina tonight and see the fireworks over Lake Michigan!!!! I have spent soooooo much time the past few days out on the water on our boat it will be nice to be on the ground today. Still not toooooo far from water though!
This is my first card that I have made officially as a member of the Sweet Pea Creative Design Team. I was so very pleased when Lynette e-mailed me and asked me to be a part of this group of amazingly talented women. I adore these stamps as you would know if you have followed my blog. Please take time to look at their blogs. They are listed on my side bar. You will not be disappointed. This stamp is from ©ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection, sheet 14, plate #43. I didn't start out with an Autumn color scheme but I did want to use my rust colored Sunflower instead of a yellow one so that is how it turned out!!! I do love Autumn anyway!!!! I will be giving this image away as blog candy to celebrate my news!!!
I colored my beauty with copics and then cut her out with a craft knife. That was a crazy idea in itself!!!! The circles behind her were distressed and then chalked to age them. I added stickles on her hair and necklace as well as the flowers on the image and the centers of the flowers around her. I also added them to the tops of each of the dew drops. The flowers were just random flowers that I had collected over the years. I also placed a fringed piece of ribbon across the middle and swirls in the corners.
I will also be entering this into the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge Earth, Wind and Fire this week.
