Passionately Artistic

Can you believe its already March?? Passionately Artistic is having A Spring Flowers Wednesday. You can choose what you would like to make. I do love those easels and thats what I chose to do. It is warming up here in the desert and everything is starting to bud out. Soon it will be pretty and green for a while before the heat scorches it so I chose something very springy.

If you visit my blog very often you have probably figured out I LOVE flowers. They are so beautiful and they fasinate me. They come in the most amazing colors, shapes and sizes. Birds, butterflies, bugs and animals feast on some part of them, and I do love to use them in salads or stuff some of them. They are spicy, colorful and fun. Sooooooo with that non pertinent info here are some closer up pics of parts of my card.

Used a couple colors for the leaves so they didn't all blend together. The punched butterflies and flowers have stickles on them for a bit of shimmer. Dyed my ribbon to match. Stitched on the lace and added purple jewels.

Wish you could see these beads in person. They look ho hum in the photo they are kind of clear yet not see thru with the most beautiful iridescent sheen that reflects the purple. Used purple and lavender buttons for the stop.

My favorite colors are greens and purples. I made some big flowers and a few little ones. I water colored the butterflies and glittered them up a bit.

Supplies: SU and My Minds Eye papers, lace, buttons, gems and beads from stash, MS butterfly & zig zag punch, no name flower punch, Spellbinder flower and Label # 4 nesties and Sherrod Studio Butterflies.
