Life Blooms

     This sweet little image was a freebie from Artbymiran for reaching 600 members on the FB page.  Can you tell I was playing with my new set of circle dies?  My old set just wore out from over use and it only had 5 dies in it.  The new set is from QuicKutz and has 15 in the set, from 1/2" all the way up to 5 1/2"!

My colors came from the Color Challenge at Outlawz.

     We had to start with bronze and add two other colors from the photo.  I chose gold and white.  Sadly, my bronze paper ended up looking brown but I think that's more because of the ribbons than anything else.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, and die cut.  I then cut bronze CS and gold dp and layered everything onto a white card base.  The ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

  12. What a great idea, Connie! Love that circular theme, and the interesting background it makes - especially encapsulating the image and sentiment! Very imaginative! Your coloring is perfect with the papers, and I like the shading in her hair very much.

    Connie, how is your niece? And of course everyone else. I don't want to say too much here, but please know you all have been in my prayers, and that adaptation and a fighting spirit, along with peace and wisdom, are bringing hope, gratitude and acceptance!

    Sometimes the last 3 are the most difficult, but I find being flexible and being grateful in all things has helped me come far in my approach to facing things! You are so special!
