Bring Back Beautiful/ Beauty in the Spotlight

Guess what?  I am so honored to announce that I will be taking over as Design Team Coordinator over the Bring Back Beautiful design team.  I was so happy Julie asked me, and of coarse I said yes!  I think that the Flourishes is an amazing to work for, I couldn't be happier.  The botanical images are THE BEST for coloring with Copics.  Besides that, the girls on the Bring Back Beautiful team are extremely talented and so sweet.  What else can a girl ask for, right?


I would love to see you all play along with me on this challenge.  

HERE'S HOW TO PLAY:
Beauty in the Spotlight! If you haven't tried the Spotlight technique -- the goal is to make just part of your image POP! For this fun-filled challenge, let's use this technique and 'spotlight' only a portion of your image with color! Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB10. You have until June 30th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

****If you would like to see a video by the very talented Beate she goes in to great detail on this "spotlight" technique you can find it HERE.


I used my oh so pretty Pink Paislee paper Butterfly Garden and the Cherry Blossoms set from Flourishes that you can find in the Flourishes store.  I added a piece of  trim from Wrights and seam binding from the Bluebird Lane Etsy store.


You must go and see what the rest of the design team has created!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
