Create With TLC Blog Hop - May Flowers





Good morning!  The time we've all been waiting for has finally arrived!  It's time for another Create With TLC Blog Hop! Paulette and the TLC Creations Design Team have lots of inspiration and goodies to share with you today!  Our theme this time is "May Flowers".  If you arrived here from Marsha's fantastic blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning at the Create with TLC blog and hop from there so you don't miss a single thing!  Paulette has generously provided all the digi images we have used on our creations as freebies that you can pick up at every stop.  To download the images, simply click on the image then right click and save it to your computer.

Here is the "May Flowers" image I worked with:

Here is my card for the hop:


I started with a card base of SU Pear Pizzazz and layered with patterned papers from the Kaisercraft Devonshire 6x6 pad.  I printed the image out twice on Cryogen White. I masked the image so I could airbrush the background with my Copic airbrush system and YR30 marker.  I removed the masks and colored the rest of the image with my Copics.  I cut out extra butterflies, popped them up for some dimension, then added Stickles to the butterflies and flower centers.  The image is framed with a Cheery Lynn Designs Polynesian Sails Oval die cut in Soft Sky.  The flourish was cut from Pear Pizzazz using the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die.  Some seam binding and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished off my card.

Thanks for hopping by!  From here, your next stop is Audrey's wonderful blog.  I know she has something beautiful to share with you!   Enjoy the rest of the hop!

In case you get lost along the way, here is the full hop list:

Have a great day!
