#146 SU Asian Flower

I love this flower but since it had no stem it hardly ever got used.  I watched this video  and wanted to try this technique but I KNEW better than to try it first on a detailed image.  I went looking in my stash for something a bit more wide open and this flower jumped out at me. I painted three of them and cut them out fussy cut style.  Simple but enough detail to work with the shading.  I had fun coloring it using my Stampin Up Markers and a blender pen but not Dove.  I thought I had some Doves hanging around.  I found the invoice for them today, but can’t find the pens.  Where did I put those things?

a great tutorial
  This just said Luau to me and I proceeded to cut me some banner flags and tape them on the little string of bakers twine.

  1. Great coloring on those flowers! You've definitely got that technique licked. You are right that the card looks like a festive luau! Very nice!

  2. Isn't this fun!!!! I love the banner and twine!!! Love that gorgeous paper! I still need to get mine out!!!
