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
