Morning everyone! Time for another challenge at Southern Girls and we want to see flowers. Now how easy is that? The sponsors this time are LOTV and Dtsart.

On my card I've used a LOTV stamp called Pom Pom.  These images are just so cute, I've never been able to resist them.
The large flower I made using hand dyed crinoline , with a sizzix die, held together with a brad.

Flower Power

Aren’t these new images from Make it Crafty just the coolest?   I had to colour one up this week just cos! Spring is on the way here and I just felt like a colour explosion was needed….LOL!

  And I got to use my  new washi tape for the first time. The butterfly I coloured first with copics then polychromo pencils .   Melody I coloured with copics but sorry I forgot to write down colours.

 The paper is Crate Paper Restoration and I thought it was ideal,

Take a blank canvas and slap on some stuff and voila! Pretttttttty! LOL!

I decided last week to have a play with some of my purchases from Senz and made some resin flowers with the Easy Cast resin and molds I bought.  What to do with them? I just happened to have a blank canvas sitting there waiting to be plastered with stuff so off I went. First some gesso, and some texture paste, sprayed with glimmer mist and splattered with some alcohol inks, laid on some muslin , textured with a piece of jute and left to dry. Maybe I should've left the colouring till it was dry cos is took ages...but I'm too impatient!  hehehehe.....

Then I started layering on resin and paper flowers, a couple of shells, pearls and viva pearl pens, then prayed all with more glimmermist.

Next I  added some MIC chipboard dragonflies, flourishes and of course the gorgeous  bird and birdcage.   These I coloured with a mixture of alcohol and metallic inks , and glimmermist.

Messy and lots of fun!

Water Play

Good Morning!  Its a new challenge over  at Southern Girls and this fortnight we want to see projects that relate to water.  And we have 3 fabulous sponsors, Marianne Design, Delicous Doodles and The Paper Shelter.

I've use a gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles called Marina.  I've coloured with copics, paper is prima Fairy Flora , and other embellies from my stash. I love this ribbon, had it for AGES!!! but this is the first time I've used it , and its perfect for underwater! 

So hop on over and check out the DT's gorgeous work and come and have a play with us!
