DIVINE CREATIONS {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for September is DIES and/or PUNCHES.

I have been happily crafting again and this time with this gorgeous girl called LADY PAPILLON created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really is so elegant and a natural beauty.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase LADY PAPILLON here.

The folded embellishments have been created with circle and flower punches. She has been coloured with H2O water colour pencils and I have used a blender pencil for the first time instead of water. I must say the blender pencil really helps soften and blend the pencil strokes.  Thank you to my team mates at Art by Miran for recommending this to me.  The stipple effect around her and the edge of the shape has been done with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design paper and bling are from my stash.


I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

Sister Act Card Challenge - ATG
613 Avenue Create - ATG and/or Optional Twist

  14. What a great sentiment, Desire! Love how you have used your trademark pop-ups to "hold it" in place. Wonderful color scheme, and so many delightful embellies! I'm sorry for not visiting as often as I would like - I do see each magnificent creation, but I'm having trouble being able to type and think these days. I hope you know that I appreciate each pretty creation. hugs, de
