Girly Flowers??!!

I missed another Grungy Monday last week with one thing and another getting in the way of my crafting, but here is this week's offering to the Tim Holtz inspired weekly challenge from Linda at StudioL3:

Flowers, colour, girly elements - me?? I think I must be having a midlife crisis - I have incorporated some dramatic black just to make my mark on it! The stamps are all PaperArtsy (except the background) - I stamped the flowers, masked and stamped musical notes in white dabber paint (this bit didn't quite work out but I love the effect nevertheless!); inked with various distress colours then masked again and inked again with darker colours and stamped the text and flourishes. Added a few pretty embellishments (not like me at all!) and a bit of lace trim and ended up with one of the most colourful creations I've ever made! I love these little resin flowers from Prima and the Vintage Trinket in the top right corner (also Prima and available from the Stamp Pad!)

What happened to Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue every week and getting involved in more challenges I hear you ask (well I heard Gill ask recently anyway...)? There's always next week!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
