Splash of Color





I love the challenge over at the Play Date Cafe this week so I made this to play along. I made the flower, but it was harder than I thought it would be. Don't know if I'll be making this type again. I didn't have the color I wanted, so I colored the fabric and ribbon with my ProMarkers.









Stamps: Raindrop Echo Designs 
Papers: Lily Bee This & That
ProMarkers: Cool Aqua
Accessories: Ribbon, Lace, Handmade Fabric Flower, Handmade Beaded Stick Pin, Lace, Tulle, Laser Cut Chipboard, Black Flatback Gems

Beautiful flower! You should make more of these kinds. I tried also making one previously for a future DT work but I guess I wasn't satisfied with mine. It's not pretty looking as yours. Thanks for the inspiration! I would try to do more of them until I get it right. lol

Thanks for joining us at The Crazy Challenge!
