I have to tell you that when I first got the flowers from Petaloo I was like WOW, there were so many to choose from, but the thought of actually coloring them myself was a little scary! However, when I started with them, I couldn't stop and really loved playing around with the different flowers and various mediums to create my own look.
All the flowers on my projects are from petaloo Color Me Crazy collection which you can see HERE! On my gratitude journal I used "Orchid Spray Phalaenopsis" as my main image then the "mini rose clusters" on the outside.
I created my flowers by first staining with MoonGlows Starburst Sprays in Tiffany Blue, then when that was dry I dabbed them with Starburst dauber in Creme Brulee Creme and touched them around the edges with stickles in Waterfall. The starburst stains can be found HERE at Lindy's Stamp Gang.
For my matching card I used flowers from the assorted layers group and the butterflies from the silhouette shapes collection called Butterflies and Dragonflies.
The butterflies were painted the same as the orchids but the main flower I brushed with Martha Stewart ink called Blue Sky then treated them with some sparkles from Stickles in Waterfall.
As you can see I took lots of photos of these projects, can you tell I love these flowers!!!
Here's a closeup of the butterfly so you can see the gentle shading effect that was created with the starburst stains.
For the center of my flower I used a left over metal piece from a bracelet I made a while ago, which has that pretty blue gem in the middle. I believe that was from Micheal's in the jewelry making department.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll be back next week as I have more flower creations to share!
Have a great day!
