Sweet Pea Challenge #5

In a Sweet Pea Dream Challenge #5
Where have all the flowers gone?

2 types of handmade paper - one is edged with distress ink and embossed with holographic powder, the other has delicate inclusions of blue flowers and leaves and is stamped with a dragonfly, lily of the valley and a wee Mr Beetle.
Ching-chou Kuik's 'Pick a Pumpkin' stamped onto watercolour paper with Distress Ink. I used a wet brush to pull out the colour, then embossed the whole image with clear embossing powder.
A pressed fucshia flower from our garden.
Lace flower with a tiny crystal.
Length of pretty embroidered ribbon.


  1. How beautiful. All the elements combine so fairily, The Dance of the Flowers is the perfect elfin musical touch.I have enjoyed this little entertainment while having my afternoon cup of tea on this bleak winter day in Ontario. I have applauded too. Now that is magic.
