Wednesday DT challenge

The challenge at ATS today is to do something out of the box. When I issued the challenge it sounded easy, well my brain is fried. Haa haa With that said, I took the lame way out. The flowers are my out of the box flowers from my S4-136 Classic Heart and S4-137 Classic Scalloped heart die templates. From now on so you know what I am talking about I will start the numbering with the smallest die working out from there. I used die number 1 (being the smallest) in both sets. Clear as mud? The flowers were cut with barely banana cs. The base is cool Caribbean and soft sky is the embossed piece. I used my fabulous I2-1001 Paisley impressabilities template. I love these things. You can cut them up and just use pieces of them. Because of that I would suggest having two, one to cut up and one to keep as one piece. I did like the impression best when spritzed lightly with water. The image was cut and embossed using the S4-185 LG Octagon number 5 and the basic grey dp using the S4-187 Large Scalloped Octagons number 5. The ribbon is May arts and buttons basic grey. Copics used were: B34, B37, Y21, Y23, YR61, YR65, YG93, YG95, YG97, W1, 0, and BG10 for the airbrushing. To get the texture on my bird, I used my colorless blender and just dotted over and over on the bird. Spica glitter pens were added as bling. Check the ATS blog for more fabulous out of the box projects. I hope you all have a fabulous day and don't forget to enjoy the possibilities.
