BugABoo Flower

I was reading my blogs this morning and saw this post by Faith Hofrichter and was really taken by the black on white combination.  So I decided to give it a go.


I love white and black with a splash of red.  It really makes a statement.  I began with by embossing Ice Gold metallic paper for the background with a Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder.  The paper has a lot of sparkle to it.  Next I used my Martha Stewart Floral Lace border punch, adding some floral satin ribbon.  Then I sized and printed my floral image from the BugABoo Mini Flowers Set.  Copics used:
Flowers - R46, Y38
Leaves - G21
Snail - E70, E41
I airbrushed B02 around the image before removing it from the die.  I added a few more layers, a couple gems and I was done.  Pretty elegant, I think.

Challenges:
