Hi there!!! I’m so happy to be able to finally announce that I’ve been asked to join the Ching-Chou Kuik DT!! Of course I said yes….as I’ve loved her images for a long time, and it will be an honor to showcase them 🙂 This is my first DT make, for the Facebook Group Challenge – Summertime/Seaside. I used Pansy Mermaid, found in the Ching-Chou Kuik store on Etsy, because I felt that she encompassed both of the themes….and my favorite flower is the pansy 🙂 I colored this beauty up with my Copics, then went on the hunt for papers and embellishments.
I completely forgot that I had this pansy print paper, I purchased it years (8 or 9) ago, and proceeded to hoard!! I used a subtle purple print from the same pad to mat everything and to punch out the pansy border on the mat of the image (using a MS pansy border punch). The ribbon was a scrap that I had in my scrap drawer, and was just long enough for what I needed 🙂 I die cut a little yellow doily with a My Favorite Things die, used a Sizzix die to cut out the banner that I stamped the sentiment on. Years ago, when I belonged to an online swap community, my user name was PansySuz…..so often, I would get the most wonderful pansy themed crafty goodies from around the world!!! The pansy that is in the centre of the bow is one such goodie….It’s a blank pansy, and I received a few of them from a swap friend in Brazil <3 I’ve hoarded them, but this card was the perfect place to use one, after coloring it with my Copics to match the flowers in the image! I couldn’t believe that I didn’t have any yellow dots, drops or anything to use as an accent, so I quickly made some up with some Fimo 🙂 They provided the perfect finishing touch 🙂
