Flower Power reminder




I'm dropping by with a mid month reminder for our challenge of
FLOWER POWER
There is a great prize up for grabs so be sure and pop over there.
It was my turn to challenge myself and do a technique I hadn't done before and I went with colouring with pencils on kraft paper, and using a bit of gesso as well!
I made this card for my Aunt's birthday. It is totally out of my normal cardmaking skills and definitely was a challenge but a lot of fun.

Items I used
Papers from a Papermania pad called Rose Garden, kraft paper, pink card, doilies
Stamps - summer flowers (geranium) from Creative Expressions, Happy Birthday stamp freebie from magazine
Coloured with Pencils and Sansodor solvent, gesso
Embellishments - lace, MS heart punch, Tonic rectangle die,  Tonic Flower punch and stamp, Tonic Leaf punch and stamp, bow, pre printed butterflies from Nitwits, letters from Papermania pad, pearls

I coloured my flowers and then set about making the flowers and putting the card together. This took way longer than the colouring lol, thought I would never be happy with it and finally settled with this!
Hope you get time to join our challenge and best of luck to you all.

I am entering this into


We had lovely weather yesterday for St.Patrick's Day. Went to Mass and sang my wee heart out lol (thankfully they had the words on the screen or I wouldn't have remember the second verse).
The rest of the day was spent indoors as I took a funny stomach and was fit for nothing!
My grandkids are still away on holidays so looking forward to seeing them next week.
Have a nice weekend.
