Just Inklined Blog Hop--Check it Out!!



Welcome to the August Blog Hop for Just Inklined.  The theme this month is to have something checked on your card or project as chosen by our super talented hostess Karen.  If you have arrived here from Karen's blog you are in the right spot.

Here is my project using the Beautiful Magnolia image available on LaPashe website:

 I have always loved checked cards, ribbons, and just about anything checked so this was a fun challenge for me.  I colored the Magnolias with copic markers and airbrushed the background with copic markers as well.  I mounted the layers multiple times.

A trio of handmade paper roses and leaf sprigs in the lower left corner a gold shoe in the upper right gold accent beads in the corners and at the base of the flower buds.  I love to use a strand of faux pearls as if to symbalize having been tossed onto the card at the end of a memorable evening and have remained through time!!!

The next stop along the hop is the super talented Heidy.  Be sure to Check Out ( I couldn't resist) the wonderful Just Inklined image she has used for her project.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cathy
