Blossum and 613 Avenue Create

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. We have a little sign of spring this weekend in Oklahoma. It would be so nice if it would stay.

Today Rick St. Dennis MFA is the sponsor over at 613 AvenueCreate Challenge Blog

613 Avenue Create’s theme is Earth Day. The challenge is a color combo celebrating Earth Day.

I have the honor of being a guest designer for this challenge. I have chosen a new Randi Dandi, Blossum. Blossum is not in Rick’s shop, but I feel very lucky to have been able to color and create something with this cutie.

My mojo slipped out the door, but I was able to put this little card together. Blossum was colored with my Copics. All the cardstock is from my stash, and I got to use a lot of my scraps for the dies. The kimono die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and I used Graphic 45 Bird Song designer paper. After I cut the kimono, I then layered it on cardstock and fussy cut around it. This layout needed some pop of color so I added fan die cuts in a brighter color. Those beautiful fan dies are from SCACD. I have had this die for several months, and I finally have something to use it on.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions please contact me. Now, hop on over to 613 Avenue Create and join the fun.

  2. Aletha,

    Wow this is gorgeous! Your coloring is perfection, the fussy cutting of the image and the dies are awesome. So this was made with no mojo? LOL! That's impressive :) Thank you for joining us and sharing your talent this week.

  4. Aletha, This is just stunning! I love the way you fussy cut around her and then layered. You half way expect to see her hair swinging in the breeze.
