A Basket of Flowers – Easel-y!


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

**I’m late posting this as my internet is still not good 😦 Wish they’d sort it out!!**

I’ve coloured up the sweet Basket of Flowers by Crafty Sentiments Designs with watercolor pencils.I made a pretty shaped easel card to display her on.The stopper is made by die cutting the sentiment four times out of watercolour card and layering it all together,adhering with wet glue.The ribbon threaded border is a Martha Stewart punch.Some flowers were die cut with flat backed pearls added to the centres and the leaf sprays hand cut from a piece of coordinating paper.
