Today marks the first posting of what I hope to be a long run with the Love to Scrap challenge blog and Design Team. To celebrate this big step in my life and also my second Blogiversary, I will be giving away some candy at the end of this post. Make sure you read all the way to the end if you want to enter my giveaway.
February 3rd is the beginning of a new challenge at Love To Scrap. The theme is "Who Loves Ya, Baby!" You must use the word Love somewhere on your project. Our sponsors for this challenge are A Day For Daisies and QKR Stampede. I used a digi image from A Day for Daisies called "Family Ties. Here is what I came up with:
I put the pin in to dress the card up a little, but then decided that I would give it to my 3-year-old granddaughter for Valentines Day. The pin will have to come out.
I wanted to do something a little different with this image. I printed this image 3 times-twice in black and once in brown. The first black image I used as my base layer. I then cut the branches out of the 2nd black image. I traced around them on brown cardstock and pieced them over the base layer. Then I colored the brown owls, cut them out and pieced them onto the base layer. I added Petaloo flowers and punched leaves to cover up the imperfections. For glitz I used stardust stickles on the words, butterflies, and flowers and orange peel stickles to the beaks and feet. The area around the image is colored with Copic BG10 and BG15. The ribbon is inked with RV66.
Here is a picture of the original image:
