Greek to Me

 Greek to Me - I was invited to be the May guest designer at Corrosive Challenge and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Regan and the rest of the team. It was wonderful to design with you.

The challenge is Shabby Chic.

My Designer papers are G C D's Ella Blue. I have run my fingers through this pad every time that I went into Hobby Lobby and I finally broke down and bought it. I know that I did not "need" another pad of paper, but I could not help myself, it is so beautiful. I distressed the Ella Blue with my distressing tool.

My flower was several silk flowers that stacked together with some stamens threaded through the center. My double bow was tied with my Bow Easy and I added a pearl spray behind the flower.

I added a Stick Pin to the stray. I love the soft blue and silver of the butterfly. I get a lot of my stick pin supplies for Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty. She is wonderful to work with and her prices are unbelievable.

I must admit that the first time that I seen the Greek God images at Tickled Pink Stamps, I was fascinated by them. Coloring this one the was as much fun as I thought it would be. The flowing folds of the outfit were a delight to color.

My frame is Heartfelt Creations.

I hope that you enjoyed seeing my creation as much as I enjoyed making it and that you will join Corrosive Challenges in their Shabby Chic challenge.
