Is it Spring Yet?




The Color Throwdown Challenge has some really yummy spring colors - thanks to Barbara! Pear Pizzazz...Blushing Bride...Kraft...it just doesn't get much better than this! I went with this dogwood image from SU and colored it with Copics (RV0000, RV11, Y02, YG91, YG93, E43, E44) & touched the centers with some Diamond Stickles. The Pear Pizzazz panels were embossed with a CB EF. I lightly sponged the edges of the punched butterfly (by Martha) using Blushing Bride ink, then added pearls. The layout is from Roxie's SCS Sketch Challenge this week. OK...that's all, folks!

I saw these colours last night and just sighed with joy :) LOVE them! Gorgeous work with them too! The dogwood is BC's provincial flowers and you have done a great job colouring them. Well done :)

Great job with the sketch and colors!! Flowers are gorgeous!! As for my sewing issues-you mentioned you were curious. Had the first janome for a year and the bobbin mechanism messed up and I could't fix it-not worth taking to a sewing center. Got out my old singer and was practicing as it sews differently-finally ready and when I went to thread the bobbin color I wanted-I totally messed up and didn't push the inside of the wheel all the way and broke needle and pressor foot- just need to go to a sewing store to get a new pressor foot. Yes, I DO know better!! Wow-did I write a book here????
