Crafting For All Seasons - Handmade Flowers

Colour is needed!  especially around here at the moment ... its dull, wet and cold ..... and its not even winter yet!

This miserable weather inspired me to make a super bright and light hearted card ........ and because the theme over at Crafting For All Seasons this challenge is HANDMADE FLOWERS ... well that made it pretty easy :)

We are being sponsored by the wonderful Bugaboo stamps ..... and they are offering our winner 7 images!!!!  OH MY GOODNESS!!  If you haven't been to Bugaboo before you simply MUST! ... there are so many gorgeous images and most of them are so easy to colour!  

 I was lucky enough to get to select an image to use .... (I already have so many because I love them, but have had my eye on this one for ages ... so yippeee!)  This is Edward Elephant - Flower and you can find him here.

 I coloured my image in copic markers and then used papers from my 'stash' ... the flower his cut out from the scrapbook paper and then I have used a stylus to round up the edges.  This was my very first attempt at doing it .... hmmmm I think you must need some sort of moulding mat .... I ended up using my leg LOL ... but will be investing in a mat soon I think.

I absolutely adore the simplicity but total cuteness of this image.  That little chick peeking around the corner of Edward's leg ... gorgeous!  My Mum loves Elephants .... and bright colours .... so this will be going to her for Mother's Day.

Don't forget to head on over to the Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the Design Teams projects.  I look forward to seeing your own Handmade Flower creation entered as well .... what a fabulous prize ... you want to be in the running for that!

Thankyou so much for stopping by ... I hope the day is brighter and warmer where you are ... but if not just try making a bright and happy card ... I guarantee it will lift your spirits :)

Big Hugs and bunches of flowers to you ... handmade of course :)
