The Blog0sphere said, "Make your own flowers! Use at least 3 buttons! And don't forget to BLING IT OUT!" And I listened! Thank You for checking out what I came up with:)
This project is inspired by the following challenges:
Practical Scrappers challenge to use flowers in any way/Crazy 4 Challenges http://crazy4challenges.blogspot.com C4C42 in which we are asked to use a flower in our project (either store bought or handmade will do)/ The Greeting Farm Splendid Stamping challenge to use at least 3 buttons in our work/and Anya Ink's http://anyaink.blogspot.com pose to add some bling in our creation!!!
STAMPS: By The Greeting Farm: "Fleur Anya" and Aloha from "Anya Says"
INKS: Tea Dye and Dusty Concord Distress Inks/Adirondack Watermelon (which I used for the flower edges and backs & around "aloha"
PAPERS: Jubilee Bright Flowers by K & Company
Flower Frenzy/Grandma's Kitchen by We R Memory Keepers
FLOWER SUPPLIES: K & Company's Jubilee Foil Paper/Adirondack Watermelon Ink/Sunflower Glimmer Mist/Gold Stickles for the edges for a subtle bling (Scalloped circle punches and I somewhat followed Mercy's tutorial! LOVED IT!)
COPICS: SKIN:Eoo/Eooo/E11/E13/RVoo/R83/R85//DRESS:G21/BG02/YG06/HAIR: E35/E37/E49/E47//FLOWERS:Y13/Y17/YR04/YR23/R35/R39/BGooo/BG02/BG45
BUTTONS: (even that dragonfly is a button! Cool, huh?) 4 light purple ones
OTHER BLING: Brads, some hand stitching around the outer edge, Deco Color Hot Purple opaque paint pen for dotted border, Black Pen for the hand-drawn swirl on bottom and of course STICKLES!!! On dress, flower edges, "button" flowers, dragon fly and whatnot!
Making these flowers was so much fun! I just HAVE to show you a view from above! (so you can see how 3-D they really are! Also, I had NO ROOM to add my biggest flower but I just had to show you anyway! So, the lone flower is my big guy which was just too overpowering for this particular set up.
I appreciate you stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment! Or perhaps even FOLLOW me:) You could be lucky #7!
Thank You again! I hope you enjoyed your trip down Strawberry Road. Love, Buttercup x0x0
