Connie-Flower Friends

Plate below is #166 by Joanne Schempp:

and below is what I did with it:

I picked up Sweet Pea's plate #166 by Joanne Schempp and could not decide which beauty I wanted to play with so I used 3 of them on my card today.
You can find this lovely plate of images by clicking


SP plate 166 by Joanne Schempp
"Barbie"  (top flower face)
"Aurella"  (middle flower face)
"Diamond"  (bottom flower face)
Copic markers & airbrush system
1 1/4" circle punch-McGill
Spellbinders "Standard Circles" die
flower punch-Stampin' Up!
Vine die-Cheery Lynn Designs "Fanciful Flourish"

I airbrushed Copic markers for the cloud background using a torn paper as I couldn't find my cloud template.
After I had colored, cut out and assembled the elements to my liking I hand wrote the words.

I hope you enjoy viewing this project as much as I did making it.  I began it with a mini Geo Die in mind for the floral
portion and when that didn't look like I wanted it sort of evolved into this.  Isn't that how most art is produced......

Thanks for stopping by!
