Curtain Call - Perfectly Peach


This week's Curtain Call Challenge is Perfectly Peach.  In September of 2013, Christine Okken, made a wonderful tutorial on Pointillism.  I was fascinated by the technique.  Her card was so beautiful, and unlike anything I had seen before.  I recently purchased the Cherries & Peaches stamp set from Flourishes, which is the one she used.  It seemed like a perfect choice for the Perfectly Peach Challenge!  While I don't have the exact Copic colors, Christine, used on her card, I have used the closest ones that I have on mine.  I'm very happy with the results.  Thanks, Christine, for the inspiration!  If you have not tried this technique, I urge you to try it.  It is a lot of fun!  I'm adding a link to help you get started.

  1. Well, you got to use your peaches and this is the perfect challenge to do that. I know that the Pointillism is not as easy as you say. I have tried it. Yours is amazing and stunning. the die that you used behind it, really enhances that technique too. Love the colors that you used to set it off. Oh, and then there is your famous bow! Resplendent.
