for nothing!

Oh my! I don’t know about the other blogger’s, but this weeks challenge was just that-A CHALLENGE!

We had to use a photo, or magazine in our design. Was I ever sweatin bullets, racking my brain, trying to come up with some “knock your socks off”, fabulous idea.

You know what I ended up with? SIMPLE!!! Shocking I know! LOL!

I browsed tons of magazine’s trying to find NUMEROUS awesome images! No such luck. I kept coming back to this ONE.

I’m not sure why. Something about it drew me in. Maybe because of the clean look it had. While SMALL, it was a bold photo. That POP of color I love so much, and it helped it had a sunflower! She looks so peaceful.

I kept thinking about the saying , that I stamped on the card, when I saw this.

I’d pick you!

I am in LOVE with it. I LOVE the idea of taking a piece from a magazine and placing it in your creation. I know there are “techniques” out there but I didn’t want to do that.

What was amazing to me was while the image is tiny, its the main focal point of the card.

I used my It’s Elemental, and new Build A Bloom by MFT. I just layered the flowers, and got a stunning look. The satin ribbon just adds richness to it. I stamped with versamagic inks in various colors.

I used a glitter pen to “dot” the inside of the of the sunflower, for subtle texture, and some pop.

The sentiment is one I always loved- by A Muse.

Needed “something” to break it up a bit, so I used my color spritzer for the subtle touch.

I hope you check my blog roll for the other player’s creations.
