Hello all and Happy World Card Making Day! The Flourishes gals thought it would be especially fun and fitting to extend a challenge that has to do with your corner of the Cardmaking World! So, here goes: Create something that represents or is inspired by your state or province. We're leaving the interpretation up to you but you could be inspired by your state or province flower, your slogan, the scenery you'll find there, colors, or your state or provincial flag. Then make sure you describe to us what the connection is! Fun right?
On to my creation! I have to start by saying my interpretation is very loose. When I think of the area that I live in, I think of a rural, down home country feel. Right now, all the leaves are turning so it is definitely fall.
Here's a peek at the park land right behind our house....
And here is how I was inspired by the colors in that photo! I loved the golds and greens and so that's what I really decided to play up in this creation! I used Flourishes Autumn Blessings....
I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it all up with my Copic Markers (See below for a list of the colors that I used!) After I was done, I did cut out my image using Flourishes Classic Keyhole die and then cut out a mat from Echo Park's Reflections Fall paper pad. In fact most of the paper came from that pack -- such beautiful falls shades! Add some ribbon, twine and a fun brad and you're pretty much done!
Here's a close up of the coloring for you!
And here's a close up of the fun brad that just so happens to be a part of the 123 Create Kit called Isabella from Flourishes! LOVE this antiqued look!
And that, my friends is it!! Now, on to all the important stuff....
