Floral Frenzy at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, phew I'm so pleased its Friday! We're really busy at work at the min but the good thing about that it the week seems to disappear in a blur and before I know it the weekend is here again. Anyway its time for a new challenge from Crafty Ann and this time our theme is Floral Frenzy. As always there is a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop for the lucky winner!

I always struggle with computery techie crafting but I was really chuffed  with myself  as I managed to Crafty Ann's beautiful ivy corner to create a border, with one of the mottled stone backing papers in the background! Clever stuff eh?? Ok clever for me lol.

I printed the image out twice and coloured the leaves with promarkers and then cut out lots of leaves and layered them up with silicone. I used Crafty Ann's short petal flower which i coloured with flex markers, I love the soft shades you can get in these and the brush tip is fab. I've got some more on order so hopefully they will be here for the weekend. I've added some glamour dust to the centre of the flowers, an ivory bow and edged the backing paper with a gold krylon pen to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Dream Valley: anything goes
Fresh Brewed: Anything goes
Papertake Weekly: anything goes plus sparkle and bling
Scrapbook Sisters: anything goes

  8. Terrific Claire - definitely clever, I don't do techie crafting at all. My goal is to be able to use digi stamps but that is as far as I am going to go for the moment. I too love soft colours, I'm saving for the new sets of FlexMarkers coming out this month. Love that soft ribbon with the colour of your flowers & those leaves.
