time well spent sample December 7, 2007

This set has been here for some time…The new Time Well Spent set (Level III in the upcoming Collection).  I looked and looked, viewed some samples, trying to think how I can make a card with this set.  I’m not a flower person, so I always tend to go crazy with them and create wavy patterns.

I went with a color palette of Ruby Red, Groovy Guava, River Rock and Blush Blossom.  I also played around with Copic Markers some more (hmmmm, still not sure what I’m doing with these). 

Here is an upclose pic of the flowers:

TFL and have a wonderful weekend.
