Fabulous Flowers

Good Morning, Everyone

An exciting day for me as I am delighted to announce this
 is my first contribution to 

 as Team Member!

I will be adding a list of team members to my
sidebar as soon as possible so I do hope
you will come back and visit their exciting  blogs.

I have used two of the lovely digital art stamps from LEJ Designs: 

He Loves Me

from the Soulful Eyes collection



from the Florals Collection

both of these and many other lovely hand drawn digital stamps and 
pre-coloured toppers are available to buy at

There are always new additons to the wide range of digital art designs
 so it is worth checking often.There is also a gallery full of inspiring ideas.


The first lucky randomly drawn winner will receive  ...................

 3 Digi's of  their choice from

  LEJ Designs 

and the second randomly drawn winner will win this fabulous set
 of xcut dies donated by the lovely Lindsay

******   There is also a special weekly draw with
 a rolling jackpot for entries using an LEJ Designs digital design.  ******


I was happy for the chance to use one of these images from

LEJ Designs 's Soulful Eyes Collection

The eyes are mesmerising and I liked this image from the start.
As soon as I saw her enigmatic little smile I was drawn to ask why
she was smiling. Well she is obviously playing "he loves me; he loves me not"
and the smile would suggest success!
 However, look at the ground! How many fabulous flowers did she use? Why did she
need so many flowers? Was she determined to get the
answer she wanted? Or perhaps she is the one
who is not sure?

The tulips are indeed fabulous flowers too.

I wanted to design an A5 card base with a framing shape
 and a little bitof dimension but not exactly a stepper or easel
 so I used an A4 sheet of lilac card
and just played around until I got it the way I wanted!
The result is exactly how I imagined my 
design for fabulous flowers challenge so I am quite happy.

The digital images I resized
 using Serif and flipped the tulips to balance as I had a clear
mental picture of having the tulips at either side.
All of these images are coloured with promarker pens
 with a tiny bit of Sakura gel for highlighting the discarded petals.

I opted to put a piece of lovely textured 
and foiled paper behind the central image. 
It is part of a 12 x 12 sheet of 
My Minds Eye scrapboking paper. 

Everything is mounted with dimension and I finished off
with some ribbon trimming.
