Flowers.....the rolled variety!

Hello again!

Call me eager, jumping on here two days in a row, but I have two reasons for this:

#1.......the current challenge of 'May Flowers' over on Saturated Canary ends tomorrow, and as I quite often miss the deadline, I thought I'd make an effort and get this one in there!

#2........the ultra cool new magazine "Designed To Colour" which I found a few weeks ago, is now running a monthly challenge too, this month being 'rolled flowers'.

So this sweet little card happens to be the perfect candidate for both challenges!

For this card, I also went back to my roots and dug out the Prisma Pencils......oh how I've missed them!  It wasn't until I started colouring that I remembered how gorgeous they are to colour with...........be prepared for a little run on the old pencils!

So here's today's card, showcasing a few of my favourite things.......a cute Saturated Canary digi, Kraft cardstock, flowers and of course pencils!

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate making rolled flowers?

Love the look of them, and I don't mind working with fabric, but for some reason paper will not co-operate with my process 99% of the time!  Anyhow, after making six of them for this card, they finally started behaving themselves.

Colouring, as mentioned a few times already, is with Prisma Pencils blended with mineral spirits, and the image is framed with a little distress ink/blending tool combo.

Papers are from one of my favourite older MME 6"x6" pads from the 'Lost & Found Two - Blush' collection.  Rolled flowers are created using a couple of different sized Dienamic dies, some canvas and a little of the patterned paper.
The sentiment is made by feeding some Kraft Core cardstock through my Dymo, and then sanding a little.....love it!

Well that's all folks!

I'll be back again tomorrow, believe it or not.....3 days in a row.....could be a record!
Have a good one,
