Fairy Fun Fridays by Prairie Fairy Challenge 19


Welcome to Challenge 19 for Fairy Fun Fridays! The challenge this week is to use flowers! Flowers on your card/project, images of flowers, any sort of flowers- it all works!

This card was an exercise in stepping away from my comfort zone and trying something different.... more of a clean and simple approach with subdued colors and stronger image color. I like it though! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 138!

Beautiful freesia image by Prairie Fairy can be found right here.

I googled freesia and was amazed at all the different varieties and colors. I used paper by Cosmo Cricket and pearls by Kaiser Craft.
Colored with copics and spritzed with bronze shimmer mist. Thanks for stopping by and join us in the challenge this week! You have to pop by the other DT members blogs to check out some totally amazing creations!

Have a wonderful weekend!
