Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere at TInks

Morning Tiddly Inkers! :) We've got a sweet new challenge for ya to join in with this fortnight..


Easy, peasy, right? There's a million and one ways you could incorporate flowers onto your project - I've gone all out and tried to cram them in in.. four ways? Heehee. First up.. Wryn - Spring Bling was the natural choice, wasn't she? With the pretty bunch of flowers she's holding. So I've coloured her up to match my papers from First Edition - Bird Song. I then added a little field of flowers all around her using light strokes with my PMs and FMs to create blades of grass, then touching the very tip of my pen to the top of random blades to create pretty little flowers. This has gotta be my fave technique right now - I do it on almost all of my images! LOL.

So my two patterned papers I've used both have floral patterns, then to finish off the card and to add a little extra interest and dimension I used some delicious Wild Orchid Craft flowers in aqua, mint and 2 tone ivory and pink to match the other colours on the card. I've looped a few little lengths of baby pinks grosgrain ribbon and layered some lace behind the image too. I always like to add texture through fibres on my projects. Just a fancy way of saying I've got an addiction to ribbon! LMBO!

So what are you waiting for?! Get your flowery projects uploaded to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog NOW so we can pop by and have a mooch!!
