The Next Level challenge
This was the premier week for The Next Level a new site where they will be featuring turtorials, challenges, hint and tips and a lot more! The tutorial this week is "how to make lollipop flowers". Well, I have to say I hadn't seen these before, but as soon as I watched the video tutorial, I new I had to try one! I used the free digi paper offered on their site from Summertime Designs the Freedom Kit. Please go and take a look at Summers site, she is so sweet to offer her digi paper free! and they are beautiful! You can make a donation on her site to a very worthy cause if you would like... I really like these flowers and will definetly be making more of them.
The card challenge this week was to use a lollipop flower and a cut out on your card. So this is mine....I'm not sure if you can tell by the photo, but Tilda is sitting on the oval cutout that is adhered to the backround paper with diminsionals, so it is raised a bit. Hopefully it looks like the night sky....thats what I was trying to accomplish!
Because I thought the lollipop flower looked a little vintage, I wanted the rest of the card to also go that way...so I used the PTI new Chai ink to color the vintage cream ribbon, giving it a older look. I also used the Chai ink around the edges of the papers and the lollipop flower.
Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
