Flowers

I'm popping by with a very quick post today to show you a couple of flower themed cards I've made for challenges - one of which is for Allsorts who are celebrating their 8th birthday.

The first is Penny Black 'poppy gems' which I stamped using the Misti with green and red Memento dew drop inks, then coloured with Promarkers. I added a Penny Black sentiment using black ink which looked 'flat' but luckily I'd used the Misti and still had the stamp in place so was able to clear emboss on top to give it a bit of life.


I shall enter this in the following challenges

Allsorts challenge 'happy 8th birthday Allsorts'

Penny Black and More challenge 'photo / colour inspiration'

Country View challenge 'flower power'

Time Out challenge 'flowers and ffriends make life a garden'


Now for even more flowers with a decoupage image from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse Decoupage' CD


This is for the following challenges

CD Sunday challenge 'say it with flowers'

Double D challenge 'flowers galore'

Words 2 Craft By challenge 'springtime = party time'


Sorry I'm not managing to get round to visit you at the moment but Dad is back in hospital again. My sister and I are taking it in turns visiting him and also taking care of his house and all his plants and vegetables - they're needing lots of watering and looking after with this glorious weather we're having.

  1. It's lovely to see you at Allsorts 8th Birthday celebrations Andrea, thank you so much for joining in with your lovely creation. And also at Penny Black and More, your card ticks all the right boxes for me (and yet to get my mitts on that stamps and it's not for the want of trying)
