MAGNIFICENT {Art by Miran} Challenge 3

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 3}

Art by Miran is launching their third challenge today. All their challenges will be ANYTHING GOES as long as your project has a hand coloured image. So hop over here to have a look at their second challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, as I also have a showcase project with an Art by Miran design over there.

I have been playing again with these gorgeous image created by the talented Mi Ran called VENUS.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.   You can purchase VENUS  here

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The images have been coloured with Copics. The brads are from stash. The design paper is from BasicGrey.  The sentiment has been coloured with dry chalks and is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The folded embellishments has been created with a Fold It Swirls Template.
