Crafts Galore Encore - April Challenge- Sponsor A Day for Daisies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is here. I hope you have something nice planned. We are just off to meet up with our daughter I am hoping to make her wedding bouquet today. I have been working on flowers all week. It is so much better when she is with me she can says what she likes and doesn't like straight away.

Well it is the start of a new month and that sees the start of a new challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog. The sponsor this time is A Day for Daisies and I was allowed to choose an image to work with. I had quite a hard time choosing there were so many beautiful images in the store. There is a prize this month of $12 credit to spend in the store.

The papers I used came from my stash. I coloured the image first and then I chose the colours of the mats and layer and the papers to match the colouring.

There are many gorgeous images available in the online store

The image I choose is called Dandelions in a Mason jar and is available HERE. I printed onto water colour card with grey ink I added a sentiment with the computer the image was coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I used the Double Pierced Square die, designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expression, to cut the image and make the mats and layer. 

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.  I will let you know if we manage to make the bouquet.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
