Harmony by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi friends!  My DT card today showcases the gorgeous "Harmony" image by Ching-Chou Kuik, found here:
The theme this month is "Easter or Floral" but, this week, the Design Team members were challenged to use the "Spotlighting Technique".  I have never used this technique before and I must say that I enjoyed it.  I made this for Ching-Chou's current Facebook challenge.  She also has a blog challenge.  Check them out here:

The image was printed twice.  I coloured part of one image, cut it out, and placed a black mat behind it, and voila!  I used Copics and Polychromos to colour it.  The flowers are handmade.  That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day and stay safe.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Flowers:  EK Success "Gardenia" and "Retro" punches
                Spellbinders "Floral Oval" Etched die (flowers only)

Black felt border and pearls are from my stash.
