I LUV SCRAPPING TOO
I just realized after two years of retirement I have become a challenge addict, which takes up a fair amount of my time. Thanks to innovative and creative ideas from many Design Teams, my CTMH daughter, my friends and CTMH Artwork on Facebook, it gives me a jump-start on many of my cards and turns on my creativity to come up with my own unique designs. Thanks for looking and please click around my blog… hope you enjoy my creative side…now back to the drawing board.
Well I had no idea what I was going to do with the The Outlawz's September Progressive Freebie Challenge. The Flower Child Image #4 was provided by Nicecrane Designs. I knew I wanted to come out of my comfort zone and create a different look than my usual cards...wanted something vintage using distressing, doilies, gold, glitter, beads and have her surrounded by flowers using the crunched flower technique...and this is my creation of everything I wanted to accomplish with this card.
My daughter introduced me to the Crunched Flower Technique...The flowers are cut in various sizes from the Art Philosophy Cartridge. Spray flowers with water, crunch, open (crunch more if needed) dry, spray glitter paint, dry (distress if desired) and layer flowers. To see many of Lisa's creations of these crunched flowers go to her blog Life of a BZScrapper.
