Wild Flower Wednesday #26

I have someone special for you to meet…her name is Willow. She is one of the latest images that I’ve gotten from The Wild Flower Kids digi collection, and I think she is so sweet!


Isn’t she??? I love how she’s sitting, perched on a lily pad…her pretty wings, and her lovely face.

Wild Flower Kids is one of the sponsors over at Smeared & Smudged this month! If you play along with our Sketch Challenges, you have the chance of winning 5 digis (of your choice)! How cool is that? Jen Shults, owner and designer behind WFK, was kind enough to give the S&S DT some digis to play with. I already have several (‘cause I love ‘em!), but I just had to have Willow here and Iris…who you will see soon.

The latest WFK challenge came out today, since it is Wednesday, and the challenge was purr-fect for me! Embossing! Emboss anything, in any way. So, I decided to do some dry embossing. I took out my Fiskars plates, and embossed away on some Core’dinations cardstock. Then, I sanded it, so you can see the core color and cut it down with my trusty Coluzzle. So, I guess I should show you the whole card now right?


I also added some pink cardstock, which I inked, to the background. Willow is of course colored in with my pencils, and I added a couple dots of Stickles to her headband. But…I needed a bit more sparkle…


So, I used the Stickles in the center of my flowers too! These babies are from Prima. Aren’t they sweet?

So come on over to Smeared & Smudged. We’ve got a whole new look going over there, and some wonderful new changes! Plus, like I mentioned, if you play along with the Sketch Challenges, you have a chance at winning some Wild Flower Kids for yourself!
