My friend picked the theme for this week -- Using Silk Flowers on your cards. I'm afraid inspiration was a bit slim for me this week (as well as time to create), so I chose to use my flowers in a fun sort of way rather than a elegant/beautiful way.
Paper Creations Magazine last year.)
Paper Crafts Magazine (for the shoe) and adds the silk flower near the toe. The white cardstock is embossed with the Textile embossing folder and the word "style" penned with a sepia calligraphy pen.
Polly Craft Designs, and is colored with Crayola markers and matted on green and light purple cardstock. I added rhinestones to the the background for some extra "bling."
Happy Birthday Abby --- Hope your day is extra special!
here, and is so very cute (even to a person who isn't overly fond of cats!). I colored this cute kitty to match one that we have name Oreo. I attatched the "I Love You" stamp (Studio G) because it looks like this kitty was trying to tell someone she loved them, but did a very naughty deed in pulling up that flower (just like a cat - huh?!?).
Well that's the end my my silk creation cards for the week --- these were all fairly fast and easy to make (It probably took me less than 3 hours to complete them all --- good thing too as I didn't have a lot of extra time this past week). You can view a few previous creations using silk flowers here, and one on a card box here,
on a bulletin board decoration here, and in the center of this card here.
Now go here to see what my friend created with her silk flower stash.
Brilliant minds think alike, right? That big yellow daisy card looks a lot like one I made! :)
I just love your creative use of the flowers! I'm going to have to try some of these techniques. I never thought of adding them where there is a flower in the image! (I think my favorite is the cat, too.)
