Challelnge #86 - "A Bouquet of Flowers"

Recently I had a challenge in which you used flowers as an embellishment.  This time you are to use an image of some flowers.  We would prefer an image of a number of flowers ie. a bouquet instead of a single flower.  I hope you have fun with this challenge and the Design Team is anxious to see what you create.
Julie Odil- Guest Designer

This lovely image is from Lunagirl.  I simply added layers of cardstock that matched, added some white satin ribbon, and a stickpin given me by a friend.  
I have enjoyed my time guest designing at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.  Thanks so much for having me!
I thought I would try something a little different this time.  I made an art journal page collage using a vintage flower image and a mother's image.  The collage papers were scraps of Gelli paper that I made.  I also used a vintage mother's image for Lunagirl's Mother's Day challenge.   When I first started I wasn't sure how the vintage images would look on the bright papers.  Many coats of Gel Medium were put on these pages.
I used a pale green pearlescent card blank on to which I matted some torn sentiment paper, spotted ribbon and rub on lace. The image is Lunagirl's 'daisies etc' which I matted on to a piece of textured card\
The focal point of the little tag is from Lunagirl Moonbeams. It is set on Bazill Basic card and a dry-embossed, inked and coloured tag. I embellished the tag with a ribbon and a butterfly.
For week one  was given this image, I sized it so I could make an ATC (artist trading card) I used scraps from the scrap box that were left over from other projects. I cut the ovals with the Nellie Snellen Dies, the sentiment is a very small woodblock stamp I bought from The Butterflly Moon, I think it is from a large set of tiny sentiemnts from Hero Arts. I then added the scrap of ribbon that was just sitting on the desk as I was finishing up. I put stickles on the image flowers although it can't be seen.
I had fun making this card because I love flowers. The image used is from our sponsor Lunagirl Moonbeams and it is so beautiful and romantic. I wanted the card to be entirely monochromatic so I used blue a lot.Just the sentiment has a different color.  Keep playing along with us and have a magical week

Spring and flowers and fairies and all kinds of good things go together in the real world so I have brought them together on my little ATC.  The flowers and fairy are both Lunagirl images.  Have fun creating.
