Here is my challenge project :)




I made a décor piece for a book shelf I usually display my creations :) I used the letters, H-O-M-E from Letters in Blooms. They were stamped with Memento tuxedo black on classic white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then they were die cut with SB Square Nestabilities. Each mat was layered on the panel of SB scalloped square Nestabiliteis and they were layered on the panel of SB lacey square Nestabilities. The base was used 6'” x 6” scalloped square chipboard and I painted with acrylic paint. The rest of the décor piece was created with BG designer papers and colored cardstock. The flower clusters were die cut with SB Bitty Blossoms and Foliage dies. I stamped the sentiment from On the Porch with the black ink and die cut with SB Fancy Tags. Then the tag was sponged with Memento bamboo leaves with blending tool and adhered on the décor piece to finish off.





Copic colors I used for this project:
