Passion for promarkers week 49

This week it's time to follow a sketch and to make your own flowers at Passion for Promarkers. Can't believe that I found this hard. Maybe because my mind is of trying to create some wedding invitations for my brother and his fiancé. I have only a rought sketch ready, but hey! I have several more days to make them, eeeh? Well, there is always night time. :)

Michelles sketch looks like this

My card is made with yet another one of the sweet images from Lili of the Valley. They are really growing on me and are becoming big time favourites for me. Delish to colour as well. You really should try some of this cuties. :)

So, since my card is a little small and my DP kind of busy I decided to have a little different look at the sketch and used only the "outside"/stripe of the circle. I also replaced one of the layers behind the image with a piece of acetate. So all layers are there just a little harder to spot them compared to if I had used papers instead. Have used raffia in a natural colour to fit in with all my green and brown colours.

Have done two types of square flowers, a little more "boyish" I hope. The small ones just a couple of squares glued together in different angles with a bling stone in the middle. The bigger ones are also made from squares that I have cut into the corners, and folded one piece into the middle from each flap. In the middle a tiny square and a button. At first I only wanted the big ones but they looked to bulk on the side of the image so they ended up like this instead. Inspiration came from my youngest kids kindergarten ward where they have a huge "wheel" like that. It's so much summer in that. Used to have those when I was a kid as well, and run around in my grannys garden with my brothers. Those where the days ha?

Papers are from MME, buttons and bling Papermania and it's coloured with the promarkers of corse.

So this is all from me for today. I wish you a wonderful evening and hope it's warmer where you are! Brrr, has anyone seen spring?


Ps: I think I enter this for the Lili of the Valley challenge as well. The theme there is Here comes summer. It's not typical summer colours but the boys having cookies out and drinking lemonade could really be my own two ones.
