Thinking of You

Hello everyone. 

How is your week going so far?? Great I hope. 

The next Crafty Creations Challenge has begun 
and you have til August 7th to get your project submitted.

Don't forget the theme is always Anything Goes.

The sponsor of this challenge is Beccy's Place and she has the nicest digi sets. 

Prize -  1 set - winners choice.

If you are looking for something special, start at Beccy's Place. 
All of her digi's are sold in sets and I love them because everything in the set goes together.

I decided to use an image from Beccy's Place in the Index of Freebies - Poppies

I used colored pencils and some gamsol to color and shade these beautiful poppies.
After I finished coloring I decided to give the flowers some dimension so I colored the flowers on another print and fussy cut them out and used a stylus to give the flowers some curves. Using that stylus also added so shine to the flowers. 
I am sure it was because I was adding pressure in a swirling motion over the pencil lead. 
Next, I popped the flowers up, right on top of the original print.

Here is a closer view to show what this looks like up close.

Those flowers look great in person. I love adding dimension to flowers on a card. 
I think it makes the flowers come alive.

I sponged on some Old Paper ink to the edge of the label shape to break up that stark white.
Next, I added a sentiment and the card is completed.

I hope you've enjoyed this project and will link up with us for this challenge! 
Remember, all of our challenges are Anything Goes.
