Good morning all, hope you had a good weekend, Ally Pally was amazing and we were so busy...the stand was under this fantastic window and it all looked stunning.
We launched the new wheelie stencils, oh you definitely need them...
I am very lucky and got time to play with them ( more about that later in the week ).
On to today, it is a new challenge over at the Sweet Lilac Flowers blog.
The new theme is Monochromatic, so that means, tones or shades of one colour along with white and remember to use your flowers too.
Here is my take on the theme...do hope you like it.
I started with a piece of the Gelli card, I do love this card. I used the Allium 1 stamp from Clarity and began stamping using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. After each image I turned the card through 90 degrees and repeated the stamping.
Until I had four images.
Then I stamped the allium in the middle of the stalk, turned the card and repeated it again.
Until I had this wreath shape.
Then I added some shape to the wreath using the Allium 3 stamp and Dried Marigold Distress Ink.
Some matting and layering,
I chose these gorgeous orange flowers from Sweet Lilac and glued them into place with Glue Gel..I added some dew drops using Glossy Accents.
I decided to add a couple of butterflies and made them from cutting into one of the flat flowers, and used the stem to form the antennae.
Next I glued the butterflies into place and added some gems.
Here is a closer look.
The other D.T. members have made great projects and you can find them on the blog
Thanks for popping in today, I am off to get ready for tomorrow's workshops in Hazel Grove...
Have a good day all,
Much love, Jo. X
