a bouquet of wishes...

I was the lucky winner of some Penny Black stamp sets on the Paper Crafts FB page recently. When they arrived in the mail I was so excited as they are just the most adorable images.

This little girl and her jumbo bouquet was the first image I reached for.

She's colored with Copic markers. Her cheeks are pearlescent chalk (Pebbles Inc) as is the tissue surrounding the flowers. I love the little sparkle that chalk leaves.

The center of each flower is fuzzy (fun flock) and I love the texture it gives.
The flower on the top card is made using PTI flower dies. The yellow layer is PTI felt that I punched little holes around the edge for a doily effect.
The flower on the second card is two Sprites (Prima) held together with a brad covered in fun flock. The peach flower started out life white, but a few spritz of Perfect Peach Glimmer Mist and a smoodge of Rock Candie Stickles and waaaLA! Transformation! :)

I stopped at Archivers last night after getting a haircut and was magically drawn to the new Jillibean Christmas papers. OMG I can't wait to cut into them! (*gasp* I know, I know. It's going to be hard! LOL)

See you soon!
