LRS #148 Add Flowers

The challenge this week at Loves Rubberstamps is to ADD FLOWERS to your card/project. You can have flowers in your image, use a flower die, or just add flowers...you get the idea. We hope you'll decide to go a little bit floral and join us this week.  We are being sponsored by Art by Miran who provided the DT with some wonderful images, I used the gorgeous Fairy Shaylee


You can find many of the items I used at the Loves Rubberstamps online store:

Art by Miran Fairy Shaylee
Copic X-Press It Blending Card 
Copic Sketch Markers
Authentique Lovely
MFT Flat Bottom Clouds Die
Distress Ink : Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue

Yes, you read right...I used the MFT Flat Bottom Clouds Die. After months (maybe years) of ogling Leanne's clouds, I thought it was about time I attempted them. HERE is the tutorial that was given to me, and rather than hand draw the clouds, I traced around the die to create the shape for the template.


Make sure you upload your creation by 9PM CST next Monday evening, which you can do HERE. If you upload to online galleries, please use the tag or keyword LRSBC148. The challenge is open to everyone, you can use any stamps and products that you would like, and  remember....you can enter as many times as you like...just remember to ADD FLOWERS!.

This started out as a simple tag, but as I was finishing up I saw some leftover banner pieces sitting on my desk and thought they would look good on the tag. I love how the colors blended together so nice and it amazes me how the tag looks better with, rather than without the banner. Isn't it fun when it works out that way?!!
