Tender Blue by Ching-Chou Kuik

A very Happy New Year to you!  This is my first DT card this year which I made for Ching-Chou Kuik's brand new 2020 monthly Facebook challenge. The theme is "New Year, New Beginnings or New Crafty Stash".  
What better way than to start off with a new birthday card, right?  This stunning image is "Tender Blue", found here: 
Items for "New Crafty Stash" include the flower die, the vine die, the gold button and coloured seashells.


As always, I used my usual mediums (Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils) to colour this lovely image.  I made the flower and the pinwheel bow. I cut the frame twice to make it longer than its original size and pieced it together.  And, I added cheesecloth under the seashells. 

In addition to a Facebook challenge,Ching-Chou also has a challenge blog.  There are some wonderful images that you can win if you enter either one.

That's all from me.  Thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you soon.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Frame:    Spellbinders "Pendants" die (cut twice)
Foliage:  Memory Box "Small Marianna Vine" die
Flower:   Spellbinders "Succulent and Mum Flower" dies
Frame behind sentiment:  Spellbinders "Inverted Scalloped Square" dies

Pearls, cheesecloth, Prills and ribbon are from my stash.
