Final flower of Four (GSC exchange)

My Final flower for the GSC flower exchange! I will Post all four to Hels who I am sure lots of you know,among her many DT positions she is also on the GSC DT So Hel's if you looking I'll send them on Monday Morning x. For those of you who don't know Ginger Snap Creations Has a Yahoo group for stampers. Great bunch of crafters from all over the world and we share alsorts. Well, this month for those that wanted to, there was a flower exchange you can put what you like on the flower but you had to follow the template and make four, and you get four in return. I am also going to enter this in to a challenge over at Sir Stampalot I am sure you know they have a challenge each month this month it's 'Blossoms & Butterflys' I would really love to win the prize this month, so pop over for more info.

I really like how the red goes with the GM colour (Juniper) it's almost monochrome with a splash of colour. I didn't put the Stampington & Co stamps away ;0) they are wonderful aren't they lol You can also see here the masks I have used. I put some DP on then painted with gesso, when dry I used some masks and sprayed the GM all over.

Edged with some silver inks, added some tags, flowers & butterfly and job done! I also like the way this photo turned out. the focus is nice and sharp where the flower/butterfly is and blurred around the edges (now if I could only get it like that every time I wanted I would be happier lol) So what do you think I hope your Sunday is going well God bless you all on this Sabbath day. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Masks, Lawrence Llewwlyn-Bowen. (LLB) Design Papers (DP) Laura Ashley. Gesso. Glimmer Mist (GM) Tattered Angels. Stamps, LLB & Stampington & Co. Ribbon Stash. Images coloured with copic markers.

The red really POPS on this piece. The silver is a perfect accent, too. It's always fun to enter challenges, but since I don't really stamp, I'm not much good at them. You have a ton of lovely stamps, and you obviously know how to use them. Lovely creation.

Hey Dawn! I've missed you, too, honey! What a week it's been, yes? You have made the most gorgeous flowers for this exchange, and I'm totally inspired by your brilliant designs. I'm so glad we're both "back in the saddle," and I'll look forward to getting caught up with you!

Love this, Dawn! Your work is always so perfectly beautiful! Hope you're having a lovely Sabbath as well!

Hi Dawn,
Your going to have some Happy swappers with your sweet flowers! Birds and eggs they are some of my very favorite to stamp with.

Thanks for your kind words about my glass. I tend to do things for awhile then move on to something else. Always wanting to learn more in other mediums. My art Journey I suppose!

Hi Dawn

A lovely creation - the red and grey go so beautifully together.

You visited my blog and asked what I meant by "look for the heart".

Every card I ever make has a heart on it somewhere - either big and bold or tiny and almost hidden. The fun is finding it.

When people buy or receive one of my cards I feel it is the heart they look for more than the card as a whole LOL!!

Have a good week.

Love Jules xx
