JustRite Friday Challenge 032: Colors of Fall



For this week's JustRite challenge I chose to Copic color the poppy from Plant a Little Love, stamping it several times, then cutting & layering it. The main image is surrounded by the full border from this set, plus I decided to try something "not for the faint of heart" -- I cut one of the little swirly leaf images from the border to use in the scallops of my Spellbinders' Big Scalloped Circles LG. Proceed at your own risk, but I do like the bonus of being able to use that little swirly leaf singly now. For accent I Copic colored several clear gems orange -- one of my FAV uses for Copics (now for sale @ JustRite). Originally I planned to do a bow at the edge, but instead ended up wrapping three swirly shapes from Spellbinders' Doodle Parts along my ribbon edge, as they just seemed to tie in so well.
Thanks for visiting here today. It was 116.8 degrees in Maricopa this afternoon and just after I posted this our AC quit -- may be a warm night -- YIKES!

Your cards are beautiful! My friend Sue told me how you posted her card on the PTI site while she was away at a concert, and I thought that was about the nicest thing I ever heard, especially as you didn't post one of your own cards. I said: "give me that woman's blog address!" and she did, so here I am saying "thank you, that was so kind of you."

Terri said...
