Kuretake: March 2012 Challenge

ETA: I missed the deadline! LOL!! Figures that it was during my trip to Hawaii!! OY! Such a space! Well, no matter - had fun doing this!


I've been trying to find time to participate in some challenges like this one - KURETAKE Zig's Doodle Challenge. I am not GREAT at doodling so bear with me here folks! LOL!! I had this 5x7" canvas panel that has been staring at me for months. With a little ink misting, paper, die cuts, tissue tape and stencils, I came up with "Where Flowers Bloom..." canvas.

Where Flower Bloom... by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers - My Mind's Eye (Follow My Heart Collection); Pearl: KaiserCraft; Button: Jenni Bowlin; Tissue Tape: Advantus; Ink Mists: Tattered Angels; Glitter: Ranger (Stickles); Markers: KURETAKE ZIG; Stencils: The Crafter's Workshop; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-086 Bitty Blossoms); Other: Canvas panel

I used KURETAKE ZIG markers for all the colors and quote from Lady Bird Johnson as well as the outlines from the Crafters Workshop stencils. I used Glimmer Mist for the background.



I colored the tissue tape with green brush tip marker and twisted the tape to create the stem of the flowers. Then I adhered them - love the textured results! Also I rubbed some Frosted Lace Stickles into the "sun" to give it some sparkle. That's my take on the challenge :0)

Thanks for stopping by!
