Ragged Romeo

Tui Nathan, the Guest Designer Coordinator for Our Creative Corner, contacted me a few weeks ago, with an invitation to be this week's GD. I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to be associated with this fabulous DT. If you're looking for inspiration and variety check out both the OCC and Tui's blog.

The challenge for that week is being hosted by Sharon Wheet and this is what she has to say:
"Love is in the Air - make a Valentine's Day item (card, scrapbook page layout, 3-D item, or an altered item) using the colors: Pink, Grey, & Kraft.  Now add some sparkle, (rhinestones, glitter, metal) anything that shines!  And don't forget to include a heart shape."

This is a Mo Manning image that has been colored with Copic markers, embossing folders from Sizzix and Cuttlebug and the rhinestones and flowers are from Michaels. The small hearts were highlighted with PTI Fresh Snow Pigment ink, applied with a piece of Cut 'n Dry. The ribbon was colored with a Copic marker to match the sketch. Why don't you grab some paper and play along with this great challenge, would love to see what you create.

Thanks to Tui and whole DT for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I've loved every moment of this experience.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Hello Marie
Congratulations on being a Guest Designer for OCC this week. You have made a beautiful card for the Challenge, the image is adorable, and you have coloured them up so well.
I also like your scored Bg it not only creates dimension it adds interest to your card, and the Grey Bow connects everything together perfectly.
I hope you will join us at OCC again as we would love you to see your creations.

Such and unusual color combo (must write it down). I love how the three colors work together, so pretty and a bit rustic. Beautifully colored as always Marie!
