HOPE {Art by Miran} Challenge 4

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 4}

Art by Miran is launching their 4th 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 fourth 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 used this beautiful SPRING BLUSHES image created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.   You can purchase SPRING BLUSHES  here

I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The image has been coloured with Derwent H2O water colour pencils and Copics. The brads and bling are from my stash. The design papers are from BoBunny.  The sentiment has been coloured with dry chalks and is from Paulette {Create with TLC}. The folded embellishments (see TUTORIAL further down) has been created with a shape from the T69 {Doing Life} template which can be purchased here:
 
... and here is the tutorial for the folded embellishments (you can use any similar shape, I have used a 4cm and 5cm wide shape, respectively on this card):

Step 1
Fold shape in half both directions. 

 Step 2
Press two opposite sides inwards.



  
Step 3
Fold top layer onto bottom layer. Then fold the top flap up and backwards.

Step 4
Assemble four folded pieces as follows:




 Attach a brad to the centre of the folded shape.
                                                               

It would be great if you give this a go and let me know how how did xxx

I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
    Just Keep on Creating: ATG
    · WordArt Wednesdays - ATG with uplifting sentiment
    ABC Challenge - ATG
    · Craftitude -ATG or Easter or Spring (3/3)



    Thanks again for your lovely visits here.
    Creative Hugs
