This week the KLSNS challenge was from Kathy and her challenge to us was to use some type of Organic Material. I started out using grape hyacinths under a clear dome sticker. I flattened the flowers, attached them to the stickers and then trimmed then to fit. The looked really pretty, so I thought I was set. Since they were still a bit wet, I thought I would let them sit and dry overnight before attempting to attach them to a card......well, you will not be seeing those embellishments as the flowers shrunk up a lot and looked really bad since I had trimmed the edges (if I wouldn't have trimmed them, I'm sure they would have been usable ~ lesson learned here, either attache the flowers and let them dry overnight trimming, if necessary, the following day, or, dry the flowers flat first and then adhere to the sticker). So instead, I went for another walk through my yard and ended up making two of these embellishments using some dried flowers from an ornamental tree along with some dried ornamental grass. I think they are actually quite pretty.
And here is the card in it's entirety:
I used this adorable High Hopes Bubble Love image for my card. I colored the image with copics and then I added some Stickles to her bow, pony tail holder and heart patch as well as the butterflies. I then added some Crystal Effects to the bubbles to give them a wet look as well as her shoes. The patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Green at Heart stack (I am really loving these papers!).
