At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Flower Power.We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I chose to play with this little sweetie,Flowers in my Garden,by A Day For Daisies¬†ūüôā¬†She’s been water coloured with AquaMarkers and I stamped the sentiment to the top right corner.I die cut the scalloped square base.When making shaped cards I always cut and overlay an extra top piece to eliminate the straight edge.That works well especially in this case as I’ve used my Grand Nestabilities to layer everything up for a concentric look.Regular Nesties have been used to cut out the image and a scalloped version to create a pretty frame for her.The papers are Dovecraft Garden Party and the ribbon and flowers are from the same collection.I’ve been umming and ahhing about these for ages…so glad I took the plunge ūüôā The charm is a magazine freebie and the gems are Trimcraft The London Line.As you can see I’ve a bit crazy with the floral theme ūüėÄ

We’re taking a little Summer Break at Just Some Lines.But never fear will we be back!!

I would also like to thank everyone who played along.It’s been a real pleasure looking at all your cards/projects ūüėÄ

Here are a couple of cards I made featuring Emo Allium and Emo Daffodil¬†.You can find these gorgeous gals at Just Some Lines.Both have been printed onto watercolour paper¬†and,yes you’ve guessed it,watercoloured!I got out the AquaMarkers for a little play…The sentiments were also stamped onto offcuts of the ¬†paper and painted¬†in the same way ūüôā I chose these fetching¬†My Mind‚Äôs Eye A Beautiful Life papers to compliment them,enhancing the plainer panel pieces with some embossing.I stood each on a short length of ribbon and added punched border along with a duo of die cuts.These are intended to be for my DS2’s Teacher and TA even tho’ the term doesn’t finish until July.Nothing like getting ahead ūüėÄ I usually scrabble about at the last minute,handing them in as the glue is drying!!Altho’ I haven’t got the presents organised…yet ūüėČ These young ladies may also appear on a handcrafted gift or maybe a tag later…
