Pot of Flowers

Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Make Your Mark #37 (use any markers).  I used a sweet image from Clear Dollar Stamps called Bless My Bloomers. :)

Prize:  $15 gift voucher

(please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Stamps:  Bless My Bloomers (Clear Dollar Stamps); Chit Chat (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  White, Yellow gingham DP (Making Memories)
Ink:  Copics:  YR24, YG95, YG97, YR07, R17
Accessories & Tools:  Mandarine Twine (The Twinery), Crystal Effects, glue adhesives, and dimensionals

I colored the flowers with copics and paper pieced the pot with yellow gingham designer paper ... I'm a little obsessed with yellow gingham lately. :)   I covered the flower centers with Crystal Effects to give shine and dimension.

Here's a close-up of the pot of flowers:

Your lovely pot of flowers is making me yearn for summer and the pots I have on my patio - still aways away! Love the way you paper pieced the pot.

Nonni said...

Beautiful card Loll! :) I especially like how you've shaded you gingham paper, it makes the pot look really realistic. The shiny flower centers look amazing too.

A much needed injection of Spring Loll into something that still feels like Winter! Suc a cute image; love the gingham and the Crystal Effects in the centre of the flowers.

Simply delightful, at first I thought the flower centers were buttons, so dimensional and shiny. Yellow gingham is a happy spring -y pattern. Love it!

Love the crystal effects on your beautiful flowers Loll....love the gingham paper piecing


Kylie said...

Gorgeous, Loll!!!!! Your paper piecing is just divine and that addition of glossy accents on your flowers is amazing!!! I was thinking of using glossy accents on my card - on the balloons and her hairclips but was too impatient to get finished lol. I really should use it more often. Its funny to me how everyone is talking about spring where we are halfway through our first month of autumn here. Lucky enough for me, where I live it doesn't get cold for a long time yet and doesn't stay cold for long. I'm still suffering from hayfever lol. Take care and thank you again for your generous parcel xxxx
