Your Crazy is Showing - Bloobel Progressive Challenge Entry

Hi everyone! Each month, Lisa at Bloobel Stamps runs a Progressive Challenge on her Facebook page. If you played along the previous month, you get a discount code for the current month's image so you can play along again. This month, she offered the choice of 11 fabulous images or you could use a different code to buy them all at a special price. The theme is Flower Garden and I decided to use the absolute quirkiest (IMHO) three of the collection for my art journal page.

This is Clarissa Flower. She like the others is coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

This lovely is called GM George Flower. He , like the others, was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, then matted with black, and fussy cut leaving a narrow black border.

The third of the crazies is called David Daisy. He, like his friends, was popped up on foam tape to create dimension and shadow.

The background was created with two different designer papers which were layered and then altered. Ellen Hutson Bokeh Dots Stamps were applied to both backgrounds using either Forget-Me-Not, Jet Black or Coffee Archival Ink. Ranger Texture Paste was scraped through Carabelle Studio Weft Fabric and Numbers Art Template. Some doodling, ant brads, and a printed sentiment completed the design.

Thanks for popping by to meet these three amigos. To check out the other amazing creations made by the people playing along with the Bloobel Progressive Challenge, be sure to pop by the Bloobel Facebook page. It's not too late to join in either. You have until the end of  April to enter your creation made with one of the Flower Garden collection images into the Facebook album. Then you will be eligible for the coupon code for May's challenge. Check out the other amazing images in Lisa's shop, too. They make me smile...and want to colour them all :)

Life is good; so is art.

Lots of time and love went into this creation. Your fussy cutting looks awesome and I love the altered stamping details.
