It's challenge time again over at CRAFT US CRAZY. This weeks challenge is all about....NATURE! What inspires you about nature? Is it the flowers, trees, birds, or bugs? Play along with us this week to show us what inspires you in nature. Our sponsor for this week's challenge is COCODINGO. They have some of the most gorgeous digi images. We also have the privilege of having STITCHY BEAR STAMPS as a sponsor for the entire month of March.
Here is my card inspired by NATURE. Just how gorgeous is this image from COCODINGO? I have to admit that this type of image is not the norm for me. I tend to make more of the cutesier cards and not to many serious or pretty cards. However, I really wanted to push myself for this challenge and do something out of the box for me. I have to say I really enjoyed coloring this image and it's one of my favorites now.
I printed the image on kraft paper and used my Prisma pencils to color it in. I made what I hope looks close to a cherry blossom out of a Quick Kutz die, that I cut out and layered, sewing seed beads into the center. I also hand sewed the seed beads along the bottom of the card for something different and not too cute. ;)
Here is a close up pic of the image colored in. So let's see all of those NATURE inspired projects!! Come join us over at CRAFT US CRAZY and play along with our NATURE themed challenge. Remember it is not necessary to submit a project using a product from one of our sponsors, but if you do awesome!!
