Well, I'm back from holidays just in time to complete the very talented Stacy Morgan's challenge for this month at Power Poppy.  This one is a peek-a-boo challenge meaning images and/or sentiments peeking through the top layer from underneath.  One of my very favourite stamp sets is Power Poppy's Azaleas so that was the first thing that came to mind for this challenge.  I started with a piece of white cardstock and cut three circles in it using Spellbinders Standard Circles die.  Then I embossed it with Couture Creations Diamond Trellis EF.  I die cut circular frames from pink cardstock using the same die set and then I cut another circular frame for the centre circle using the circle die plus the scallop circle die and glued them in place.  I stamped the large image onto white cardstock using Memento Rose Bud ink and cut two pieces from it to peek through the top and bottom openings.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto pink cardstock to peek through the centre circle.  I stamped the small image with memento black ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, fussy cut it and added it with foam tape.  Then I added some more bling and layered the whole thing onto pink cardstock for the card front.  That was certainly a different kind of challenge and I very much enjoyed creating my version of it so thanks Stacy!

Copic Colours used were:  RV00, RV02, RV04, G40, G43, G46, Y15.

Thanks for coming to visit!
