Hello Friends, thanks for stopping by today!
We have a new challenge starting today over on our new Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog and the TWIST theme is 'EASTER'.
Remember, the twist is optional
but you MUST use an embossing folder on our projects to qualify for the
prize. Heat embossing is also permitted but only in conjunction with
an embossing folder.
I thought this beautiful Lisa Horton 'Alstroemeria' 3D 6x6 embossing folder would make the perfect background for today's Easter card. After embossing my white panel, I colored my flowers using an artist brush, Tombow markers and water. Then I created a double matting to showcase it.
I do hope you'll come check out our new blog and play along.
AND yep ... we will be offering prizes at our challenges ... that's always a fun surprise!
Here's today's prize offering . . .
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!!

It's a beautiful card and embossing folder, the yellows make me yearn to see my Daffodils in bloom, soon I hope!! You did a fabulous job of coloring it in with the Tombows!!ReplyDelete
So gorgeous, you did a great job adding color to the flowers, and the extra layers add so m such to your design. Beautiful Easter card!ReplyDelete
Me again, I also wanted to thank you for joining us at Krafty Chicks this week!Delete
Don,t know why it is calling me anonymous cos it’s me. This card is brilliant . Love how you have coloured the blossoms. The one go I had ended in disaster. Hugs Mrs A.ReplyDelete
Don't feel bad Mrs. A. I can't even comment on my own blog without signing back into my Google acct (shown next to anonymous). I've had to do this while commenting at MANY other blogs. Must be a new Blogger/Google thing! They are always messing around with something in the background! Ugh!Delete
What a delightful folder you have used and how creative in the way you coloured it. Those small Nuvo drops at the side add something extra to the card.ReplyDelete
This is FABULOUS, Dar. I absolutely love how you used the embossing folder so beautifully to add texture and color. It's inspiring and quite lovely. AND...you followed our simple rules like a true champion. So many people share their wonderful cards (in many challenges) and fail to post the inspiration photo/follow the simple rules and it, sadly, makes them ineligible to win. Well, I'm preaching to the choir with you. You obviously know your way around a challenge blog, so it makes perfect sense that you would be aware of rules and such a professional in your thorough (and much appreciated) entries. We all enjoy your art so much and truly appreciate your participation in our challenges. You're normally the one visiting me as a DT Member of the challenges where I love to play along. It's fun stopping by your blog just to thank you for sharing with us and to enjoy your art. Hope your week is going well, my creative friend. Thanks again for joining us. Your cards are always such a beautiful blessing.ReplyDelete
