Thinking About You Sweet Pea...CR84FN16 70

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 19, 2011 @ 9:57 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having an awesome weekend~maybe spending time with your family or enjoying some crafty time? Well if you are up for a challenge, I invite you to come play along with the CR84FN Color Challenge!
This week, we are playing with a pretty pastel color palette. Photos are courtesy of Leslie from a creative mint.
I stamped the sweet pea image from Papertrey Ink Year of Flowers: Sweet Pea, colored using the Copic markers shown below then using a S4-138 Petite Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image. I layered it on top of a lacy oval cut using a S4-313 Lacey Ovals die template, stitched around the edges and finished it off with a bow, button and tag bearing a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases.
Just in case you are wondering which Copic markers I used:

You used one of my most favorite PTI stamps, and colored it beautifully. The Sweet Peas and Butterfly Friend are my fav's. The Lacy Oval is on my "list"! :)
