Just for Fun – I’ve been holding on to this project for a few days. Every month, I participate in a friendly little challenge, just for fun, with my girlfriends Alli Miles, Julie Campbell, Kim Hughes and Michele Boyer. One of us picks an image and one of us picks patterned paper for all to use. It’s always neat to see how everyone’s mind works just a little bit differently for several cool card ideas. This month, Julie selected Autumn Abundance for us to work with, and Alli mailed everyone this delicious paper from My Mind’s Eye, Colorful Christmas. Fun stuff!
I colored my mum image with Copic Markers (BG10, BG11, Y38, YR09, YR16, YR31, G82, YG93, YG95) and added a little bit of glimmer with a Spica Glitter Pen. I used an airbrush with Copic YR31 to create the back glow to the mum image. The ribbon along the bottom was ruffled by making a loose stitch with my sewing machine along one edge and gathering the ruffles together. You need to start with a length of ribbon about 1 1/2 times the finished size. Button and twine finish it off. The cardstock is Suede Dark Brown from Prism and Flame StarDream Metallic.
I hope you have time to check out the other JiFFy projects. I always enjoy them. Have a great day!
