TT96 In the Garden...

It's time for another "Tuesday Throwdown Challenge" and our theme this week is "in the garden" - create a card or project with a garden related theme - flowers, bugs etc.  

This week the team got to play with some images from our sponsor "Robyn's Fetish"and I used the "My Spring Garden" digital image.

My little lady is coloured with copic markers and is wearing a paperpieced aqua gingham dress and hat, trimmed with pink ruffles and a pink blouse.


The sweet flowers are also coloured using pinky tones of Copic markers.  The largest daisy was coloured and cut out seperately as it sits over her dress in the original image.

My cardbase is Aqua cardstock, the banners are cut from Pink Paislee and MME patterned papers on top of which I tied some gorgeous pink silk ribbon which has been finished with a pink prima flower,


I used a little floral doily die to cut three flowers from patterned paper and cardstock and added a small hydrangea daisy to each one.

I couldn't resist using this gorgeous CR84FN colour combo - Pink, Aqua and Neutral  for my card

and used the "Sweet Sunday Sketch 157" to kickstart my mojo!

Don't forget that you can find FULL details of the Tuesday Throwdown "Garden" challenge over on the Blog and if  you get the chance, visit my teamies:


Have a fabulous, crafty time this week!
