Papertrey Ink Blog Hop-February

Hi friends,
Today, I'm participating in PTI's Blog Hop. This month, Nichole asked us to showcase a project that someone from the Design Team inspired us with and then, recreate it. Lisa Johnson is one of my fav's and this fabulous project :

is what *probably* sealed the deal for me to buy her stamp set "Life", just so I could create it for myself.
Here's my version:

The liner opened:

The liner in the cup:

This project was very easy and fun to do. I used Kraft CS & stamped all the botanical images in Memento Black. I then took C3 Copic marker to create a subtle shadow around them. I added the rick-rack, punched out the butterflies- added bling for the body & just adhered the middles so the wings could pop off the paper. You have a bit of room to add embellishments, but the bling did give me a bit of trouble when inserting it in the cup. I persisted :) I have to say, I love the final result. Thank you Lisa, for always inspiring me with your talent.

Thanks so much for peeking! I hope I did justice to Lisa's project :) I'm off to see who and what has inspired you :)
Gotta Go!
