WFW 7 Ribbons and Handmade Flowers

Finally! I finally get to play along with my friend Jen’s Wild Flower Wednesday! This week you were to use handmade flowers and ribbon. Click HERE to see the whole story. I decided to use one of Beth’s lovely versions of Morgan for this card.

ButterflyMorgan

I’ll be honest, I’m not loving how it came out. I love how Morgan looks… but the layout of the card is bothering me. I think I made the flower too big and it threw me off.

But, I did make the flower! No punches, Sizzix, or any other tools. Just me and my fingers! And how pretty is this butterfly???

ButterflyMorgan3

Here’s a close up of Morgan. She’s colored in with my Spectracolor pencils. I love the green I used in her dress. It’s just so cheery! And Nix picked out the purple for her sash and hemline. She is also supposed to be holdig a basket of eggs. I cut it off for this version. I wanted the butterflies to be more of a focus on this card. Here’s a peek at the inside:

ButterflyMorganSenti

I’m tryin’ to be like Donna and fancy up the interior a bit! The senti is also one of Beth’s. Isn’t it fabulous? I used Lily Pad Glimmer Mist on the sentiment and on the outside of the card. My ribbon is from American Crafts. Papers are from Prism, Imaginisce, Provo Craft, and DCWV. The butterflies are really old and are from Amaco.

Ok. I’m posting this really late and I want nothing more then to snuggle up on the couch with some warm chocolate chip cookies. So I am off to do that! Have a great night!!!

It's gorgeous! I love how you colored Morgan's dress. I am not very good with lighting so I'll have to come back to this so I can do Morgan's dress correctly! Love the colors! Love the flower!

I like how it turned out. The flower is lovely along with everything else on the card. I bought my first bottle of glimmer mist on Saturday. I got Pearl and I swear I've been spraying everything with it! LOL I'm hooked!
Daniella said…
When you "color" your cards, your images become art. She is so beautiful!! I love the flower you made!! the whole card ROCKS HARD!!!

Now, I have to go bake cookies!! I'll just blame the 20 pounds I gain on you!!

Who is Nix? Your daugher? I thought she had a different name (I know it is a nickname, but I thought her name was something else)

word to your mother

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
