A warm welcome to you all and to any new friends! My goodness, it's been a very slow process getting back in the groove. It seems like forever since I last posted and I want to thank you all for staying with me while I'm trying to get back to blogging. Trying to catch up at work has been a bit of a challenge as well, but slowly, I predict, I will be back to normal, or at least my version of normal. (haha)
Speaking of normal, today we hope you join us for a new challenge over at the Flutterby Wednesday blog. Today, challenge #189, is a L*O*V*E recipe.
- L = 2 or more layers
- O = odd # of embellishments (ex: 3, 5, 7)
- V = use the color VIOLET on your creation
- E = use any other color EXCEPT red.
- Include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation
Isn't this darling? I believe the patterns for all the elements (milk carton, picket fence, roof & tree) were cut using a Silhouette machine. The grass looks like a Fiskars grass border punch. Here is a side view of the carton.
I used my new Copics (2011 & 2012 woo hoo!!) markers to color Marci with cat as well as the small MS butterfly fluttering around. So how did I do with the recipe? Let's see, multiple layers? Check. Odd number of embellishments? (3 orange gems in the tree, 3 flower gems and the rope ribbon = 7) Check. Any violet here? (Yep, her dress, shoes, flower gem and butterfly) Check. Use any color but red? You betcha, that's pink not red! So that's a check! Lastly I have my little butterfly. Check! Woo Hoo!! (hahaha)
Alrighty, now it's your turn to create something using our L*O*V*E recipe. Link up with us at the Flutter By Wednesday blog and don't forget your butterfly, angel or fairy. Have fun with it, can't wait to see what you create!!
