Bobbly Flowers and a blue hat



It's a bit of inkiness for my Prickly Pear DT share this week and one I really enjoyed creating. I started with Dylusions and Glimmer Mist onto the reverse of Centrua Pearl, sponged some sunrays using a mask and randomly stamped with a number of Prickly Pear stamps including the lovely sentiment and then from another piece of card also sprayed with the same mediums made some flowers using the matching stamps and die and swirls using the new swirl die.


My Nicecrane DT piece this week uses another new design sheet called All Season Hats, I made a stepper card, some scraps of DP and overlaid them with trellis cut from linen cardstock using a Cheery Lynne die. Some rolled roses, feahter and a beaded pin in coordinating colours.

Happy Monday all.

Bobbly flowers rock Brenda!! That title had me sniggering...not sure why, guess I'm just easily amused!! They are brilliant anyway and that is such a lovely sentiment. I would love a hat like that, it's been such a long time since I've had an occasion to wear one!! xx

Karen Petitt said...

Both of these are stunning Brenda! I love the first, of course, because of your beautiful flowers and the fact you got mucky with paper/card - my all time favourite lol! The sentiment on that card is beautiful and so true and I love that wheat stamp! Then onto the next card which is an opposite, if that makes sense. The lady with the blue hat is fabulous and so very elegant and beautiful. The colours on this card are gorgeous and I must get myself some dark blue card the next time DH drives me to craft shop. With the white die cut trellis it is just beautiful! Karen xx
