Remember the sneak peeks from last week? Well, a few weeks ago, Caroline of Bubbly Funk fame asked me if I'd be interested in doing a Guest Designer spot for the shop, specifically on the flowers I've been making recently for my cards. I was so thrilled - and even more excited when the "few bits to play with" she promised to send turned out to be a pizza box full of deliciousness! There was paper, card, ribbon, little embellishments and of course some flowers - chipboard in every size, felt, cork, card,....all sorts of lovely stuff. And not only that, but Caroline gave me free rein to use my own stash too. I've had a whale of a time playing with it all and I've done three projects for the shop - I would have done more but time beat me - and I felt dismally to come up with any bright ideas for the cork flowers - but I can't give in so I'm still working on it..... Anyway, the flower projects are now up in the BF shop so I can post some proper photos of the cards I made with them. The one above is made with those fab "Silver Lining" papers from We Are Memory Keepers, a chipboard flower and one form the DCWV Paper Posies bubble pack. The second one is sei paper, a chipboard flower covered with UTEE, paper flowe and felt flower The third flower I made is this one: I've not actually used this one on a card yet - in fact I can't even find it, must be buried somewhere - probably under a pile of stuff (Kathy blushes)
I've made a couple of cards using the same method - one even made it to the Basic Grey Gallery which was very exciting! The other was this tiny version made for a certain Wedding card...
Thanks Caroline for giving me such a great topic to work on and for letting me play with flowers to my heart's content - I had such a great time!
I know there are a few of the sneakies still unaccounted for but I can't show those ones yet.
