Think Love...

Hello friends!


Can you believe the weekend is over, and it is already Monday? Sheesh!


Well, at least it's Magical Monday!


Today's challenge at There's Magic In the Air with Paper Cupcakes comes from Kim!




The image this week is Think Love, and Kim's challenge is to use this wonderful image on a box, bag, or holder of some sort. How much fun is that!



I happened to have just acquired a box of Petaloo flowers that came in this delightful RED box, complete with drawer! I simply popped out the enclosed window, and added Nina's darling artwork, and of course some chocolate, and voila!



I printed the image and colored it once, then shrunk it down a bit, reversed it, and colored it again. I popped up the second image with dimensional dots.
Hopefully, it looks like the love of mother and child!



All coloring is done with Koh-I-Noor Pencils and low odor mineral spirits.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope that you like my little creation!
Be sure to run over to Nina's blog and snag this image! Once you do, be sure to play along? The randomly picked challenge winner will receive a free Nina May image. I can't wait to see what you create with Nina's beautiful image, and Kim's challenge!
I also want to take a minute to apologize. I have been literally buried in tax paperwork, and have had very little time to get around to your blogs to see what's going on in your world!
Hopefully, the next few days will finish some stacks of paperwork, and allow some time once
again for 'play'!!! Forgive me - I will come to see you soon!

This is so stinkin cute! I love how creative you got with using two of the images and flipping one and sizing it down. I also love when an image "comes out" of the square. This is a great project! Best, Curt

Kim said...

Well, where do I start?!? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pink giraffes!!! And doing two was BRILLIANT (I'll have to remember that!) And I'm loving your sponging of your backgrounds, just finishes them off wonderfully!

BTW, just so you know..I love chocolate and have a birthday coming up (it'll be #35)...hum, let me know if you need my address! Shameful I know but I seem to be getting more so in my old age :)

Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration and I hope you get the paperwork/taxes and other responsbilities done soon, I want to see more!

I had no idea you were so amazingly crafty! I love giraffes so this one jumped out at me. I'm going to have to wander back later when I have more time and check out all of your creations. Nice work! (This is Elizabeth Wallace, btw)
