MMSC #16, Copic Creations Challenge #10, ROP#19

TGIF everyone!

I just received the envelope template in the mail from Priscilla (Click her name for details if you want to get one). Since I am doing a card using the sketch from the Midnight Madness Challenge #16 , also using the requirments from the Copic Creations Challenge #10, and Roses On Paper #19. I decided to just to make an envelope to match up with this card.

Here is th Midnight Madness Challenge #16 sketch:

The current Copic Creations Challenge #10's requirements is "Red, Pink & Heart".

The current Roses On Paper #19 requirement is incorporate the use of punches in a Sketch Challenge of your choice!

Here is the picture to show you my finish set (a card with a matching envelope)

This is the card I finished with the colors Red & Pink and I added a heart charm and a heart shape brad on the crochet flower. This crochet flower and the heart charm are from my friend Angela Wood (thank you Angela!). This crochet flower's original color was peach, but I really wanted to use it for this card, so I dyed it to redish pink.

See, I put two drops of Stampin Up ink refill, added water and put the flower to soak for a minute or two (because I don't want it to be too dark, if you want to dye in a darker color, add more ink and soak for a longer time).

Here is a closer view on the image coloring:

I added some stickle on the three Prima flowers to make them glow a bit.

Here is my dyed color crochet flower and I added a heart brad in the middle and tied a heart charm (see lower picture) on the ribbon to match the requirement of the Copic Creations challenge.

Here is my finished envelope front for this thick card.

This is the back of the envelope and I added a lace trim border with a little heart to complete this set!

These are all the Copic markers I used for this card.

Anymore??.......sorry, no more. Will have to wait until my spare time to post work on more projects. If I am not posting for the next couple days, please do have yourself a wonderful weekend!
