CYP Challenge 126 - Flower Power

Hey there! Craft Your Passion is hosting another challenge this week. This time the theme is Flower Power and to qualify for prizes, you must have a flower in your image. Remember, when you enter, link up to your specific blog post for this challenge and not just your blog in general.

Our sponsor this week is Delicious Doodles. I love this floral watering can image. I printed it on Kraft cardstock to gain a little more practice and because I love how the colours pop. I used my Prismacolor pencils on top of a layer of white pencil crayon. Once coloured, I traced a template shape and cut it out, inking the edges with Distress Ink to draw the eye inward. A doodled border and three flat back pearls were added.

The background papers were from my scrap box. They were both mounted on brown cardstock and the strip of green was then matted with white to repeat the white of the card that shows around the outside of the card.

The sentiment was computer generated, cut out using an oval template, and faux stitched and inked. It was mounted on the same brown cardstock to give it weight and then popped up on foam tape for dimension. Once the sentiment was adhered to the card, a small green dragonfly brad was added to the top left corner to balance the card.

Now zip on over to  Craft Your Passion Challenge blog to gain more inspiration from the fabulous projects the rest of the DT created. We can't wait to see what you come up with this week. It's always so fun and inspiring to check out your creations. Thanks for dropping by.

Life is good; so is art.
