THE SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE NO. 30


Hello crafters, thank goodness it's almost the weekend, I can't wait! Two posts today, and the first one is for The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge No. 30 - "Flowers" - see flowers on your project whether they be the main image or embellishments. I have chosen to use a stamp from Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit Collection called "Butterfly", and this cute image has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and the flowers in the flowerpot have been replaced with little paper flowers, with tiny pink gems in their centres. The image was then cut with an Oval nesty, and layered on some lime green card. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Sultry. I used a ribbon hole punch on either side of the image, but did not like the effect, so I covered over my boo-boo with some ribbon, and stapled the pieces in place. The card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, and some more paper flowers and brads from my craft stash.

I love this gorgeous paper, louise and how you've used the paper flowers to give more depth. Did you see Joanna Sheen demoing lots of Messy Rabbit stuff on Create and Craft TV at the weekend?
