flowers/florals [scrap mission]

Hi all.......................i am so cream crackered the house seems a constant mess ,i 'm constantly throwing cr## out ...yet it seems to be breeding.[rant done with]

this weeks Kenny K challange involves floral/flowers as does 'aspoonfulofsugar' and 'Papertake' challange is a sketch which fits this card perfect-in fact i hav emy nione year old son who spoted the likeness of my card to the sketch so thanks to him i wil add it to papertake also

i have used black scrap card stock from inbetween papers matted it with an embossed burgandy co ordination card stock

another burgundy with gold swirls from stash again matted on the same black card as main background.

ribbbon's from poundland-roses are from old scrap red paper slightly inked in black swirls from Accent essentials [cricut]

and last but least promarkers for colouring

ok card doesnt want to load-see if i have better luckin a few minutes time....

about the card - i have used 'afriend in need' digi image

coloured him using promarkers....and i was determined to use scraps from previous projects..i kept the backing paper green to go with his shell-matted him on a glossy black card[which was a backing piece of card for other card stock].

cut offs of sheer green ribbon, and embellished using flowers ;again made by using scrap paper left overs..

[ no trying to re load card to 'crafty creations'before entry time closes;not happy about site not loading:-(]

yeahhhh- may get it entered in time after all-not bad after six attempts!!!!

this card was meant to be a pink and blue theme-the blue ink onthe butterfly seemed to dry a purple'y colour :-(

i have have coloured Kenny K image in using promarkers and die cut her out using Nellie seddon circles,and chalked the edges in pink and blue -though it soesnt seem to show on the photo.

the backing paper is from Minds eye celebration -and embelished using a selection of blue and pink pearls from 'works' and the flowers i made using scraps of paper .

i am entering her into two challanges


papershelter - anything goes
