Happy New Year! So much going on around here in my little crafty world! Before I get to today's post, I have some SUPER exciting news to share ~ I am thrilled to pieces to announce that Rebecca Cross, Owner of Pink Paislee has given me the awesome opportunity to be a part of the Pink Paislee 2012 Creative Team!!! YAHOOOO!!!  If you would like to see the complete list of talented designers, please click here.

Today kicks off an all new CR84FN Color Challenge AND it is our ONE year anniversary celebration as an official Color Challenge site! I can't thank the entire CR84FN DT gals enough for all their hard work over the past year, all the talented designers who play along and all of you who take the time to leave such encouraging comments :) I am looking forward to another AMAZING creative year with all of you! For the next two weeks, we will be playing with the vibrant color combination shown in the graphic below. The beautiful photos were provided courtesy of CR84FN's DT Member very own Deborah Frings. Thanks so much Deborah!
Using a combination of stamps, inks, paints, rub ons and  various die cuts, I made my first She Art canvas project which I learned how to make in Christy Tomlinson's She Art workshops. If you are looking to learn some fun and fabulous techniques, I highly recommend taking her workshops! They are AWESOME!
These vibrant colors are just what I needed to get me going with this project! Thanks Deb ;)
I made her dress combining fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Phantom and Parisian Anthology collections. The little flowery and heart detail on her dress are Stampin' Up rub-ons that I had in my stash for nearly 8-10 years! EEEKS!
The little dimensional flowers were made using fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Nantucket and Phantom collections along with the PTI Beautiful Blooms dies and more Stampin' Up rubons:
The pennant banner was stamped using a pretty flowery image from Flourishes Birthday Pennants and the numbers are from the MFT Typewriter set. Notice the pretty stamped rose border across the top? That was stamped using images from  Flourishes Birthday Pennants set:
Thanks so much for visiting! For COMPLETE details, please visit the CR84FN site and for some fab inspiration, please be sure to visit the CR84FN designers: Suzanne CzosekLisa SomervilleStephanie KraftSue LelliDeborah Frings, Heather Jensen

Heather Jensen said...

I LOVE how this turned out Mona. I love the she art look. Hallmark has some prints that are flat and are not nearly as awesome as the 3D effect you get from something hand made. You need to sell these now. It it beautiful. I love the combination of stamps, rub on's and paint. Amazing. :)
Happy New Year!
Hugs~
