Crane

I love this crane and it was one of the designs supplied to the Tuesday Throwdown design team for our challenge #62 which is to do a non-stamped sentiment (mine is computer generated). McMahon Five Designs has supplied the wonderful images we are using this week.
Hope you'll join us this week for another fun challenge.

I sponged my sunny skies and colored my image with Copics. I was very happy to find this wonderful tutorial from Becca Feeken at Amazing Paper Grace. I know it looks like a Martha  Stewart punch around the page, but it isn't. She shows how to use the Morocco Lace border punch by EK Success to make this pretty frame.
Other deets in my recipe below.

Icopic-Blue and Orange
Paper Pals Art-Use one piece dsp, one punch, one sentiment

Benzi this is incredible. I just love how you did the shading. It reminds me of the beach here in Florida. You have created a masterpiece. I believe that you are going to win those challenges as this is one awesome piece of work!

Colleen Dietrich said...

It *does* look like a punch around the page, but now I can see there are no corner punches. Very tricky, very beautiful! And I love that crane image too. He's handsome, and you've given him a beautiful scene to stand in.
