Gd Jacqui Challenge 22 / Buttons and Bows

Hi again craftaholics! Hope you've all been having a great time and are enjoying all the lovely images and inspiration we have here at Fitztown. Today I'm showcasing my very first flower from Fitztown and I do love it! lol I'm using the image FL 1. I actually printed it 3 times then coloured it with yellow and green Promarkers then highlighted it with some a yellow deco pen I bought from yellow moon for my nephew to a paint with. Well all's fair in love and crafting after all and I'm an awesome aunt cause I print him out all my designs and let him colour with my Promarkers! (sacrilege I know but he's 5 and sooo adorable! I just can't say no!) Anyway back to my project! I cut out two layers of the flower and decoupaged it and I love the way the height makes it stand out. The rest was easy, I used yellow pearlescent card as my base then created a background with a flower stamp, versamark, and gold embossing powder. I split this in three panels and put it on my background. Then I used an SB edger die and cut it in gold, yellow and black and placed it about a third of the way down. I used another die (sorry no idea what make) and cut out my flower with it and a yellow mat as well. I placed a circular border that I sprayed in gold on top of the three panels then a green doily and my image and base. I found 3 green buttons (drawer searching again) lol and put them at the bottom of the panels. I used really broad green glitter ribbon to make a bow and added a white fabric flower and a gold gem to finish. This is quite a time consuming project but well worth the effort as the end result shows. Once again I hope you like and, if you do, please let me know. Till next time, Jacqui xx
