Good morning PaperPlayers! ;) Hopefully this post will go live when it should and I'll still be sound asleep having a much needed lie in!
Another Thursday, another PaperPlay Challenge with inspiration from Team A this week! ;)
MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS
So.. I won't lie.. I kinda chickened out with this one and created a 'layered' flower. *cough* Well, that's what I'm gonna call it and I'm sticking with it. I did attempt to make some rolled flowers, you know the ones I was getting asked for tutorials for left, right and centre a few months back? Thing is.. I've lost the knack. Totally. I tried about 5 times and none of those attempts were happening. Typical.
I've created a card and 'matching' bookmark to show you. I made these for my next door neighbours birthday, which was actually yesterday. :) She's always pottering around in the garden, and loves her flowers so I thought this image from LOTV would be perfecto.
I apologise for the dark photos - Autumn is definitely upon us, which I'm loving.. although the light is poop for taking decent photos. Hmm. I best work something out, huh?
I created a little matching bookmark with the same image, the recipient likes to read a lot so I thought it would be the perfect gift for her.
Here is a shot of the card. I've used some delicious papers from Prima and used some cardstock from Papercuts for my cardbase. I stamped the image in Pretty in Pink ink from SU! and left it uncoloured for a more subtle look. A lot of WOC flowers, liquid pearls, distressing and doodling. Oh, and a little tag from PTI.
The bookmark. Isn't she sweet? :)
