Birthday Dahlia



Managed to get another Verve Beach Party Challenge card done before Dancing with the Stars came on TV (yes, I love that show!). At first I was stumped knowing what to do with the 3 staggered panels, but went to PTI's new Green Boutique pad for coordinating prints to go with their dahlia image. I colored with Copics, cut out & layered with dimensionals. I sprayed the flower with Shimmerz/alcohol spray to add a sheen. Some stitching on my Janome and some silver pearls finished up this fun sketch. Be sure and check in on the Verve forum on SCS to join in the beach party challenges. Get that bikini ready for Friday night! :-)

STAMPS: Delightful Dahlia (PTI), Big Wish (Verve) - sentiment.
PAPER: Green Boutique DP & Hawaiian Shores by PTI, Neenah solar white
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Copic sketch markers: YG13, YG17, YG95, Y08, BG11, BG15, BG34; Silver pearls, Janome sewing machine
