Calling All Sistahs June Encouragement Challenge CAS14!! =)

Pin It

I'm here today for the New Challenge over on the Calling All Sistahs Blog!! 
EVERY Month on the 18th we'll be sharing a New Inspiration Challenge Photo!! 

Lets take a look at the Project I've made for the NEW 
Calling All Sistahs June Encouragement Challenge CAS14!!

I started by creating my background!! I LOVE that stencils can add interest, without distracting away from the Images!! I used a Stencil from MFT and some Wilted Violet Distress Ink!! Then I added some Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks!! For some Shimmer, I added some Opalescent watercolor splatter along with some Wilted Violet and Turquoise Watercolor that I added Opalescent Watercolor too!! Its HARD to see in the photos, but in real life its SO BEAUTIFUL!! I think the 
Galaxy-ish background  REALLY makes the Flowers POP!! They are front and center!! 
For the Flowers I Stamped and Embossed the Images from the Pretty Posies and Peace & Comfort Stamp Sets!! I used WoW Glitter Embossing Powders!! Using different Colors for all of the different Images so they'd all have their own Color!! Then I used the coordinating Posies Fri-Dies and the  Garden Fri Dies to cut them out!! I colored the Images with Copic Markers and added some Tonic Studios Morning Dew to the Centers for some dimension!! I used iCraft 3-D Foam Squares to adhere the Flowers and Leaves!! Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from Peaceful Garden in White Embossing Powder!! To finish off my design, I added a few Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals!
