About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is MHK Designs, and I used a digital stamp set called "Rosy Elements".  I love MHK Designs because the images are so versatile....please visit Mynn'ssite to see all the lovely things she has to offer!!

I printed my leaves and flowers, then fussy cut them all out and colored them with Copic markers.

PIP Challenge 1743

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1743, an "Anything Goes" challenge sponsored by Fred She Said.  Please visit their site for some beautiful images!!  This image is called Scribbled Floral 1 and was so easy to work with!     I colored it with Copic markers and mounted it on 2 pieces of colored cardstock from my stash.  I had originally started with a white background, but it didn't look right, so I sponged a background using Pineapple Smoothie ink and also a sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey. I added some Wink of Stella to the flower petals and an orange rhinestone at the base of each flower.
