Flowers in a Jar

Double Trouble Challenge Blog is asking for flowers for challenge #21. Many of us are longing for spring, so flowers were a joy to color. BZZZZ was also an option, so I added one of my little bee brads to one of the flowers. The sketch, shown below, came from an optional linked challenge from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #303.


The pretty glass jar of flowers is from a set from Paper Smooches, Best Buds, that I colored with Luminance pencils on Kraft paper. The sentiment, embossed with white, came from the same set. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye, Fancy That. All edges were distressed with Distress Inks, and several layers were popped for added dimension.

Thanks for your visit. I love reading your comments!

    1. LOL! I thought it was funny that bzzz was a part of this challenge too. Of course, flowers were too, but you know my memory! Happy to make a flower card again though, especially using one of Kim's images!

  3. Wow - what a bold mix of patterns (something I would probably be too hesitant to try), yet the the focal point still comes through. I really am amazed that you managed to pull that off! The flowers in the jar still take centre stage and are perfect. Thanks for sharing with both Atlantic Hearts and Double Trouble :)

    1. LOL, Alyson! Yes, this was just a bit outside of my comfort zone too, but thankfully it worked. I think the white border that I left around the flowers did the trick !

    1. Smiled out loud when I read that you liked the papers, Melanie, but that's our little joke :) Actually, I know you did! Thanks so much!
