Create with TLC Blog Hop--Words, Timeless and Beautiful

Welcome to the Create with TLC Blog Hop! Paulette and the Design Team are excited to show you what we created using the theme of "Words, Timeless and Beautiful"! If you arrived here from Karen's blog, you are hopping in the right order. If not, you might want to begin your hop at Cynthia's blog. Paulette, our generous benefactor, gave each Design Team member an image to use on our creations. You can pick up these images as freebies at each stop, so be sure to visit each blog! All you have to do is right click on the images and "save as" to your computer; then you, too, can use Paulette's pretty images for your creations!

Here is my "Words, Timeless and Beautiful" image:



And here is what I created with this image:


I printed the image on Cryogen CS. This image felt very Victorian to me, so I went with a "more is better" approach to my card. (What? Me? Put lots of stuff on my cards? Really?) Ahem...I colored this image with my Copics: G40, G82, G85, V01, V12, V15, R81, R83, R85. I added some accents with a Signo Uniball white gel pen, and used a Copics Clear Spica pen on the butterfly to give it some shimmer. I chose designer paper from the Bo Bunny Smoochable Collection and used Stampin' Up CS for my layers, vines, and butterflies. Several dies were used: Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and medium and small lacy butterflies; and two leafy flourishes by Memory Box. I punched out the baby butterflies with a Marvy Uchida punch. Pearls from Martha Stewart Birthstone Gem Stickers were added as accents. The flowers, crystal heart chandelier, and stick pins are by Wild Orchid Crafts. The tulle was colored with my Copic refill ink. Whew! I think that covers it!

Thank you for hop-stopping! Your next destination is Marsha's inspirational blog. You will want to see her wonderful creation and freebie! I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop; if you should get lost, here is the entire hop list:  


Here's wishing you a super Sunday!
