Know your ABC's

Boy oh boy is there a great challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  This week Maki is our hostess and this is her challenge....'Pick a letter of the alphabet and use three elements/supplies that start with the letter you picked". for example, if you pick "B" you could make your creations with "B"rads, "B"uttons, "B"ows, color "B"lue, designer papers "B"asic Grey and so on. Now go Create!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with.


I chose the letter 'C'. The first 'C' is for the flower 'C'lematis, the deep blue paper is from 'C'olorbok, the flowers were 'C'olored with 'C'opic markers and I added a 'C'harm for good luck!


Some of the 'C'opic colors that were used are pale 'C'elestine, 'C'lematis, lt.grayish 'C'obalt', 'C'rystal opal, pale 'C'obalt green, 'C'adium orange and 'C'hinese orange. The butterfly portion of this stamp was stamped a second time, colored, then clear pop dots were used to mounted it over the lower butterfly.


 The top wing of this butterfly was stamped on acrylic, colored on the reverse side with 'C'olored sharpie markers, then attached near the body with red liner tape.

Hope you enjoyed my study in "C"'s...I had a lot of FUN with this challenge. Not sure my parents would have liked me getting that many "C"'s on a report card!

Please check out the super creations by the Flourishes Design Team to see what letters of the alphabet they chose! Now go put on your creativity hat and show me your letter of the alphabet.
