Challenge Time

It's time for a new challenge at Dream Valley Challenges.  This fortnight you and I are challenged to use earth tone colors.  I chose to use a beautiful image from Saturated Canary.  Oh, let's be real!  All of Krista's images are beautiful.

Image was colored with Copics.  Here is a bit of a close up of her face.


and the embellishments.  The flowers, bling and pearls are all by Prima.  The leaves are a die cut that I cut apart and covered in copper Stickles.


Ribbon is a scrap from my stash.  I have to tell you that I bought the I-magicut ribbon cutter with some reluctance.  I mean I own a pair of scissors right!  I have to tell you that I love this thing.  It melts the end of ribbon where it is cut for a perfect finish.  This particular ribbon was starting to unravel on the end but no more :)  Sentiment was part of a goodie bag that I received at a Relay for Life crop I went to a couple of weeks ago.  It did not have any packaging so I am unable to give credit.  Ink for sentiment is Terra Cotta from CTMH.


Papers are by MMR and DCWV mat stack.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink on all of the edges.


I'd also like to enter this in the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Girly but no pink
Card Makin Mamas - Getting Girly
DYSU - Bling/Glitter
Twisted Tuesday - flowers but not roses/rosettes
Paper Sundaes  - anything goes

Have a wonderful Sunday and get craftin'!

Hugs
Carrie
