On to my creation!
While we were supposed to pick a favorite set for today - I picked an image that I love and think is just gorgeous but have hardly got the chance to use! It's the large image from Flourishes' Magnolia set.
I stamped and colored up my image -- stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Flourishes Classic White Card Stock. Colored it up with Copic markers (check out my list below for the color families I used) and then I used the "outside the edge" technique after my image was all colored up. That's when you let a portion of your image fall outside of the die cut shape by fussy cutting and setting the cut image on the inside of the die. If you want a great tutorial on this -- Diane Zechman did a fabulous one over on SCS HERE! From there -- the rest is just matting it all up -- with some fun My Mind's Eye paper, sheer ribbon, paper piercing and pearls! Ta da!!!!
