It's ' Blooming '

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
It's our Colour Week hosted by Maria
and a popular one for sure!

I chose to move in a different direction away from the popular
Valentine's Day choice for February
with these colours and make a Birthday Card.
It's a pretty simple card focusing on that beautiful
flower die from SU Botanical Blooms.
I love that set as there is so much you can do with it.
It was die cut from a shimmery red paper and my
tiny pink flowers hiding behind it are also shimmery.
The leaves are grey as is the frame
behind my embossed Kaisercraft Leaves.
Added some pink washi tape, red pearls
and my sentiment and die from STAMPlorations Fluttery

Pop over and see what our Special Guest Lisa Elton
and the Team created and come join us in our Gallery.

Till next time - Cherrio from

Pretty Pink Project for Art and Soul

We have a gorgeous feminine Mood Board for February
over at Soul Sisters Facebook site.
There are 3 $50 Vouchers to be won for our
Australian viewers and the chance to be a
Guest Designer for our overseas entries.

I chose to pick a flower from our Mood Photo
and bling up my project.

I started my project by adding Gesso to my base.
Then inking some tissue paper with a script stamp
and scrunching it up as a layer for my flower.
Continued on my background with my 
Stamperia stencil with texture paste 
and adding some grunge stamping.
Smooched with Nuvo Shimmer Powder
and Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers.
Added some plasters tape (dry wall)
to help hold my bling in place.
I then went on to make my pink flower with
Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Dies
with  Nuvo Catherine Wheel Shimmer Powder

After gluing several together I added the centre stamens
and lots of gold glitter.
Sponged it with Nuvo Mousse.
Putting that aside I continued with the background.
Here I had  fun adding some inked tulle,
flowers, prills, beads, diamond dust, 
mini art stones inked with Art Alchemy Emerald Green paint, 
pearls and gold thread.

A few close ups - 

Finished with attaching my flower.
