hi guys well its time for another 

Petal Lu Challenge

the theme is 
Yellow Flowers

Please follow the new rules, your project must use flowers,(we are after all all about flowers) Please also add flowers of our themed colour.
not all the flowers have to be in the colour but a few would be nice.

ok so my project

at Christmas i got these very naughty 
and very yummy marzipan treats

the box has a pull out inner like a draw, well me being me thought oooh nice box lol 
and i stashed it away... 

when i was trying to sort bit away in my crafty space i kept knocking  
over my little bottles of re inker....
light bulb moment!

and the fit perfectly into the box!!

so of course i had to make it pretty, and what better way than Petal Lu blooms

first i decorated the box with acrylic paints to resemble marble or stone adding black ink around the edges to indicate age.

then i splashed it with yellow.

i painted the chipboard swirls and frame in the same yellow and stamped the work ink.

i took 3 little bottles and using grey and yellow paint i coloured the inside of the bottles
glued in the corks and then glued them into place.

and the final piece is of course the beautiful blooms.

now it sits quite happily on my shelf and no more re inkers going for a roll across the floor.

i hope you like it

hi guys welcome to the new challenge for 

theme is
Flowers and Ribbons

i decided to go for a tag, using this wonderful image 

Two Gothic Roses

this is 8 x 4
i cut the tag from some packaging and covers it in some rose printed paper, i then stamped around the edges, the image i printed 3 times and coloured with prisma colour pencils, then i fussy cut the layers and mounted with sticky pads.

i added the ribbon and lace and stamped the word love, then mounted the fussy cut image.

hope you like it and come play along with the challenge
