Marks Finest Papers Challenge today

Can you believe February is almost gone!
 Here at MFP it is Color Challenge Week and the color is brown.  
You may use black white and one other color sparingly. I started with a creme
 colored base distressed the edges then added the brown strip. It was run thru 
a Stampin Up embossing folder then the edges cut with the MS Arches punch..
 A little lace on each edge. The teacup is from the Relax A Bit Set cut out and foam 
dotted onto the dotted dp scalloped circle. The sentiment is from the Oopsy Daisy Set.
 Everything sort of looks mismatched in the photo but in real time it
 actually looks nice together.
 Seems all the colors changed in the photo.

Good Morning Friends

Today at  MFP Challenge we are asking you to make a Z Card.
 It is so simple, the directions are HHere.
 After cutting the base you can decorate however you choose. I used several 
different dps just to give the different sides some interest. The pretty edging is
 a die from Paper Trey Ink .I used the Black Eyed Susan Set for the images cut out 
and added them to the sentiment.. The sentiment is from the    Set and cut out
 with a Spellbinder Fancy Label die
. A small hand dyed bow was added.

Tuesday Throwdown

A Day for Daisies is our Sponsor this week and the
 theme for TT Challenge is  Layer it Up! I have used the image Pick a Bouquet.
After coloring this sweet image I cut it out and added it to the Spellbinder Oval layered
 onto the Fancy Rectangle. There is another layer of dp thats not to visible in the pic and 
some lace edging.  The base was water colored with some Tim Holtz green and
 mahogany with some random stamping and splattering, Some tea dyed
 cheesecloth is tucked under the image and flower. The flower
 was cut from some wate rcolored paper and lots of layer.
 A little flourish and ribbon dyed to go with it

Good Monring Ladies~~

It is Technique week and our new  MFP Challenge is Block It Off..
.Now you can find the instructions here.This was a fun one with lots of different takes,
 so be sure to stop by and check out my talented teamies creations! I have used images
 from two different sets. The large blossom is from the Gardenia Set and the two smaller
 ones from the  Little Flower Set. After coloring the images I blacked in the block around 
and then added a few squiggles around. Dont like the squiggles but just wasnt
 ready to scrap all the rest of the work so just went with it!
 You know how those little ideas dont always pan out but oh well lol.
 My teammates really did some very pretty ones,
 so pop over and check theirs out!

Power and Spark Challege

Im entering the Power and Spark Challenge over at  the Power Poppy..
 I just love all Marcella's beautiful floral images! Ive never entered so thought today 
I would show off one of their new Beautiful Digi Images, Everything's Roses.
 The talented team did such an awesome job coloring this image I was totally enticed 
to get it. Jennifer Dove colored the teacup in black and made knobs instead of dots, 
I was mesmerized by how beautiful it was so I did try to make knobs too.
 My coloring is done with water color pencils and doesnt hold a candle to
 theirs but it sure was fun to color it anyways. Although it was matted on
 a royal blue to match the cup it looks black but it's not in real life! 
A little piece of lace and a tied on
 button, because this image doesnt really need any embellishments.

Happy Saturday!

Our Challenge this week at MFP is CAS with Hearts.
 Now I have to say CAS is a real struggle for me, totally unnatural. With that being
 said here is my take on it. I used some Tim Holtz  aged mahogany to splatter a heart .  The sentiments
 are from the Love Love Love Set. A card is born. but it seems so plain it makes me
 feel like it isnt done lol!  So for all you gals out there who make it look So easy
 I envy you. Come show us your version of CAS and make sure you
 have hearts. Your will find the rules here...

Tuesday Throwdown~B~

Good Morning Friends, today at Tuesday Throwdown 
 and they have provided us with images.

 Mine is the "Bee Mine" image and the
 theme for this week is Paper Piecing.This little bee is rather small so I just 
pieced his head, wings and yellow stripes. The wings were cut out
 and stickles  added to them before foam dotting them back 
on. I decided since the bee was yellow I would go with a Crazy Yellow color scheme 
for my Valentine's card. It's for my hubby so he will be cool with yellow lol! 
 After finishing my bee I cut him with a Spellbinder heart .
 The yellow was dry embossed and then added to the dp. The orangish red
 hand dyed ribbon was added to go with the orangish red
 design on the dp and we have a Crazy Yellow Valentine card!
 So it's your turn to show us what paper
 pieced beauty you can come up with!!
Stop over today....
