CDAC Freebie Challenge Red & Aqua color combo

This card came together for a couple of challenges plus for Crafty Creations where I am on the design team.  Our challenge this week at Crafty Creations is to use at least three dies cuts, anything from punches to dies cut machines etc etc...   My die cuts on my card are the flower cut from the Cricut cartridge, Flower Shoppe, the circle from the George cartridge and the brown strip is a Martha Stewart border punch.  The fan was hand cut by me if that counts as a die cut LOL!
Our sponsor at Crafty Creations this week is Crimson Cloud, be sure you stop by and check out their web site.
Speaking of the fan it is a Priscilla Styles digital images that I got from CDAC.  You really need to check out CDAC as there are so many talented people there plus right now they have a challenge going on where you get free digital images to work with.

This fan is one of the images from Priscilla Styles that I colored using my Copic markers.  I am getting better at the shading thing.   I am pleased with how this turned out.  I also have a problem some times with colors but this worked out well.  I added a red glitter brads to the fan and some sheer silver ribbon.
The flower started out white and I inked the edges with Distress ink and then sprayed the flower with Glimmer Mist.  The background aqua paper I Cuttlebugged with a flower embossing folder.
Well sure hope you enjoyed your visit and will check out Crafty Creations and join us and also CDAC and see what freebies you can get at and play along with us.
