H2H Cover Challenge Card

I love just about everything Close To My Heart. And the Seasonal Expressions 1 was no exception...well, maybe. I love EVERYTHING in this book. :)

In all my years with CTMH, I don't think I've seen as much social media posting with a paper pack as Chelsea Gardens. It proved to be very popular...selling out of dots and gems and thin cuts in a record breaking number of days/months. Crazy!

So, I will jump on that wagon train. Here's another card I created with this beautiful paper collection.

I love that floral pattern with all of the soft greens. I have been playing around with my ShinHan markers and blending up a storm. I learned a trick with the leaves. Kind of color in a bit "sloppy", not perfect. Then go back with the blender marker. It will shade in and leave you some spots that look lighter than others. This technique doesn't work for every item you color, but the leaves and flowers are perfect for practicing. 

I am entering this into Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Seasonal Expressions 1 Cover Challenge . You have until the end of March to play along.

Happy crafting!
