Our first challenge is led by the super-uber talented Julie Koerber this month and it’s entitled…
THE SKY’S THE LIMIT!Julie’s challenge is all about being inspired by all the amazing colours that the sky has to offer. Be inspired by Julie’s photo on the Power Poppy Blog or take a photo of your own and use it for inspiration! As the challenge implies… the sky’s the limit! LOL!
I am super blessed to live on a little lake in Southern Alberta and we have the most amazing sunrises so I thought I share a few of my favourites with you first before getting to my card today.
I used the darling little budgy and tea cup image and sentiment from the new “Short Stacks” stamp collection from our newest release.
I embossed my image in detailed black embossing powder, heat set it and then used some watercolours to add colour to my image.
I added some tiny splatters to my back ground using a toothbrush using some black watercolour pigments and some white pen details to my birdy and tea cups.
Now… off you go on a little adventure through all of the Bloom Brigade blogs…
Allison Cope – you are here!
