Floral Frenzy at Polkadoodles

Good morning my lovelies, a quick post before I rush off to work to share my project for our Floral Frenzy challenge at Polkadoodles. We've got a fab prize up for grabs and lots of inspiration from my lovely teamies too.

For my DT project I've used lots of papers from the gorgeous new Lavender Tea collection and a mix of stamps from Lavender Tea and Lemonade Fizz (both part of the fabulous Stamp Soup range), you can find them all at Polkadoodles

I  covered an mdf blank with one of the pretty papers and distressed with a little Gathered Twigs distress ink. Next I've stamped all the flower elements on the papers with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I cut them out and layered them up, shaping the petals as I went along and adding little pearls in the centres. I also stamped some of the fronds on acetate and embossed with a sparkly silver EP. I layered them up on my mdf, adding a stamped sentiment and more pearls with some ribbon from my scrap box.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafts Galore Encore: Anything goes
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes
Southern Girls: Anything goes
Star Stampz: Flowers flowers flowers
Wonderful Wednesdays: Anything goes
