Dream in Colour

Hi and a big hello to my latest followers I am delighted that you have decided to follow my blog. This Friday, as on other Fridays, is the start of a new challenge over at Crafts4eternity. I have bought myself this week Creative Expression stamps Art Flowers and Zentangled flower both designed by the very talented Sam Poole. Well you know what its like you just have to use them. Fortunately they fit in with this weeks challenge "April Showers brings Spring flowers" any project including flowers. My other inspiration this week, having been blog visiting seems to be using up your scraps, and we all have loads of those. So combining the 2 things here is my design team piece for this weeks challenge.
I created the background by sticking, on black card,  loads of random painted/stenciled strips that have been trimmed off previous projects. I stamped the zentangle flower with Archival ink and heat embossed with WOW matt clear embossing powder. The flower has then been hoghlight with a white Posca pen. The Sentiment and stamped tape strips are from art flowers set.

Here you can see the closeups.
The final addition to this project was adding the numerical remnants rubs from Tim Holtz.

So why not pop along to crafts4eternity and join us with your floral inspired piece. We would all love to have you join in with us. One randomly selected entry will receive a choice of 3 digi images from the Crafts4eternity store.

Thanks for visiting and see you all soon, not this weekend though as I am working :-(
