January 2017 Blog Hop Challenge


Isn't our inspiration piece fantastic?  I want to eat one of these pretty cookies too!

This month we had a fun challenge of using a black background with a pop of color using a favorite floral. First, I used the stamps to create a background using white embossing powder. Then I used white Cardstock to make just the spray of flowers.  And finished them off with my zig watercolor markers.



This was a lot of fun, and I will do it more often. It really has a punch!

Happy hopping today!
