Crafts & Me Challenge #6 - For friends or family

Challenge time again over at Crafts & Me and this time Amy has set the challenge "For friends or family" which should drop in nicely for fathers day cards too!
We're sponsored by Digistamp Boutique and I chose "Single Flower" image - honest it is lol!

For the background I used the flowerhead and enlarged, overlapped and greyed out then I've used larger and smaller versions of the flower to make a posy overlapping them and erasing the lines, I also erased the leaves as it was easier to see what I was doing then added them in at the end.

Its coloured with promarkers in purples and pinks although it doesnt look it, its all then coloured with sakura stardust pen in clear so its very sparkly. Ive stamped a sentiment stamp which I won on stampin for the weekend blog ages ago and I've added white ribbon, distressed the edges with worn lipstick and victorian velvet distress inks and added some flowers to the centres for more dimension and the edges to frame which I coloured with alcohol inks and iridescent gold glimmer mist.

Entering into...

Tuesday Taggers - All that blooms
A spoonful of sugar - Floral Delights
Charisma Cardz - Flowers (entry 2)
Paperplay - Flowers & Sparkle
Stamp Something - Digi day
Crazy challenge - Distress it


Hope you can come join us at Crafts & Me challenge! Thanks for looking :)

BTW there is a tutorial HERE that I wrote on merging digital images if you want to have a play. Works in PSP and other programs :)

what a fabulous card and you are so clever to be able to manipulate the digi images like this! I can just about resize and print, and sometimes change colours but that's my limit! love the sparkle and pink/purple colours.
