Time Out #57 'May All your weeds be wild flowers' & CASology #198 Stencil

I haven't been in my craft room to create all week and I was really ready to be here.
When I saw the topic on Time Out, I knew exactly what I wanted to use.

'May All your weeds be wild flowers'
 
  I just saw that I can also enter this into CASology


This Lisa Johnson stencil called Peaceful Wildflowers.  Of course the stencil isn't like pictured here so I had to cover up some images as I sponged the ones I wanted then turn the stencil upside down to get others.  And of course I tried other methods, like my Brushos and Zig pens to watercolor and did not have much luck with them.  Loll made a beautiful background with a stencil and her Brushos, but mine did not turn out like hers.
Anyway this is it and I used Distress Inks to sponge on then because they were so plain tried to add some details by hand, which is not good since I can't even draw stick people.  Also put some white Perfect Pearls on the flowers which is hard to see in the photo.
Used some PTI vellum and embossed with Liquid Platinum and some embroidery thread.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh, you have been busy! Love this card, so many pretty flowers and the added sentiment in vellum is a wonderful touch! i was plant shopping...trees, camellias, maples and then of course some pretty plants, another blueberry plant and two begonia hanging plants for the front porch! I have y work cut out for me now, but I think it is supposed to rain tomorrow...oh darn!!
