FTTC66 – Picture It!


Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC66)!  This week Maki Jones (yes, it’s me!) is our challenge host! She is challenging us to "picture it!"   Now, a photo card is one way of looking at the challenge; however, you can venture off into other avenues as well.  Think magazine pictures, real image designer papers, or take a picture of some of your favorite things and print it out!  The photo does not have to be the focal point of the card, either.  Think layered flowers, borders, tags, etc!  There are also many photo techniques that can be used from altered photos, vellum pictures,  and  faux cloisonné.  Whichever photo option you take, we would love to see what you create with the "picture it" challenge!



For the challenge, I decided to use my photo image papers I purchased for a long time ago when I was still an avid scrapbooker :p I’m glad those papers could still be used again instead of being tucked in the shelf.  I used the real daisy image paper for the background. Instead of coloring the basket from Easter Basket set, I paper pieced with the real bark image paper. The same bark image paper was also attached inside of the card. The main mat was created with Spellbinders classic scallop circle and label 3 Nestabilities. I stamped the daisy image from Gerber Daisies for three times on the classic white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. Then they were trimmed to fit inside of the basket. I attached the bow on the basket handle and pearls on the punched corners and the sentiment mat.


Now, check out what the rest of FOF have created for the challenge!!



Stamps: Gerber Daisies, Easter Basket (Flourishes)
Paper: classic white (Flourishes),  dark chocolate (PTI), photo image papers (DCVW)                                  Ink: Memento tuxedo black, rich cocoa, desert sand (Tsukineko), Copic Markers – E33, Y00, 11, YR14, YG95, 91, W1
Accessories: pearls, ribbon
Tools: Classic scallop circle & Label 3 Nestabilities, corner & border punch


Thank you for stopping by~

Gosh, your paper pieced basket looks as though you colored it! What a great idea! Such a pretty card, Maki. I think you might save papers even longer than I do, but they sure worked beautifully for you today!
