Everybody Art with Handmade Flowers



I promised a card with the handmade flowers and this it. I decided I didn't like the centres with the liquid pearls so changed to mini roses. The leaves are made with the L-Em Leaf Punch. Image is Pollycraft and coloured with Prisma Pencils and Sansador adding a clear sakura pen to highlight certain areas. I then masked this and used my new letrajet and sprayed a fine mist with my Promarker. Donna, is launching her New Paper CD very soon and was kind enough to send me some samples to play with. I have used 3 and have to say they are gorgeous, cant wait for the release! Other stash used, Martha Stewart punch, Rasberry Liquid Pearls, Brown Bazzill Cardstock and sentiment done with Satmat on my Computer. The birds and Apple are from the newly realeased "The Greeting Farm" range. These have been coloured with Copics. I thought the birds were a nice touch, you can see one nesting in the flowers. This card took me a good few hours to complete but am very happy with the result. Remember Donna's Candy which can be found here and keep your eyes peeled for the release of this wonderful Paper CD.
Now this card (A5 for a change) was made from the sketch over at "Everybody Art Challenge". Tina has produced a fab sketch which I really enjoyed working with. You may like to click on the top piccie for a more detailed look.
Not done as much crafting as I would have liked this week, kids seem to have taken over, but had some new draws delivered this morning and been having a bit of a crafty sort out, ebay here I come!!!

Thanks for viewing my blog!
