Week #2 Guest Designer - For Fun Challenges

Hello everyone! Here are my last two cards as guest designer for For Fun Challenges. This weeks challenges is to use flowers, lots of flowers.  The sponsor this week is Bugaboo and I've used two of her digital designs.

This cool flower gal is Ivy. I colored her with Copic markers then cut it out using a long rectangle die from spellbinders. Green cardstock is from Bazzill and the designer paper is from Basic Grey. I did sponge some peeled paint distress ink along the left hand side of the dp. The white satin ribbon is colored with the same Copic markers and then tied into a bow using the Bow Easy.

I then took some three ivy leaves off the back one of my silk plants and glued it on behind the sentiment and main image. Lastly, I added a green felt flower and yellow paper flower from TAC to cover up the stems of the ivy and be OK with the flower challenge.

This next one is also colored with Copic's! The darker yellow is actually tissue mulberry paper that has been stained with wild honey distress ink. I let it dry and then added some swirly flowers using versamark ink and clear embossing powder. It's really hard to see in the picture! Blue and yellow cardstock layers are from HOTP and self adhesive pearls are from Kaisercraft.

Please join us over at For Fun Challenges this week using lots of flowers on your card or project! Thank you's going out to Helen and Kathy for having me as guest designer these past two weeks! It's been a lot of FUN!
