I've done Elsie Flannigan's #5 Challenge on UKS. The challenge was:
Embellish a floral accent "No matter what your page topic, I bet you can find a place for a flower accent in your design. But take it up a notch. Embellish the center of your flower with a mini clock, a tiny thread-tied button or patterned paper. And don't be afraid to turn a large flower shape into a photo frame" Elsie Flannigan.
Here's my take on the challenge.
I have cut a purple flower on my Xyron and inked the edges using a dark grey brush marker. I added a purple flower ribbon brad which I knotted some purple organza ribbon through. I 3D'd some silver peel-off butterflies and stuck these on to it too.
To finish the LO, I used:
DCWV Textured Paper - Gigantic Paisley from Charmed Cards and Crafts
Purple Organza Ribbon
Purple Paper from The Paper Cellar
Purple Brush Marker
It's unusual for me to do something so personal and only the second LO I've done of me on my own. Here's the other one I did. I stamped the background and simply added torn paper, green card, a brad and a gem. The 'special day' was kindly given to me at a crop.
