A World of Flowers

Hello All,

I keep thinking I will get to a point where I am not apologising for being absent in Blog Land, I am under the illusion that at some point my life will be a little less hectic and I will be able to craft more frequently.

The house is on the home straight ( on the inside at least ) ..... I have not made many cards partly because when I do get a little spare time and head to the loft it is soooo freeeezing I cant quite cope, normally with a little oil heater and a fleece its bearable but with work on the house and the roof being slightly open I was also sitting in a howling gale. I have however been colouring for Britain, its been nice to really have a chance to educate myself ( you tube tutorials ) and try and improve my skills .... I still have a lot to learn, but I am really enjoying challenging myself to try different techniques. Hopefully when I do next head into the loft I will be able to create a big stack of cards with all the lovely coloured images I have acquired.

Anyway .... enough waffling. This card!! Love this image from Saturated Canary I really enjoyed colouring it. ( Think Hubby saw just how much work goes into colouring as he watched me work o this image 4 nights in a row!!) I have used a combo of Copic's and Prisma's.

I have used one sheet of 12x12 paper, ( pretty sure its Bo Bunny ) I used the centre of the paper as the main background ... added a little detail with a few Bo Bunny background stamps. Then I cut out all the flowers from the page, and quite frankly just went mad!! Think it a little OTT, but hopefully it works. I have added a little doodling and higlighted some areas with glossy accents.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Runway Inspired - Dennis Basso Spring 2014
Crafty Creations - Seasonal ( I have chosed Summer )
ABC - Anything goes with colouring
Sister Act  - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking

  2. Hi Juls, what a fab image and wonderful colouring. I love your colour choices and the paper is great. I'm just in the process of moving from ProMarkers to Copics and am finding it a bit of a learning curve.

    Am also going over and over YouTube tuts!!

  14. I know the feeling Juls but great to hear from you. My craft room is so cold just now I've found crocheting by the fire much more appealing!

  16. Love the bright colours you've used Juls and all those lovely flowers.

    At the moment I'm just trying to make myself make something, anything! I got some colouring done earlier but not much notion of doing anything. I think it's been too easy to just sit down and knit or crochet!
