Dream Valley 60 Make Your Own Flowers or Embellishments

Our challenge to you this fortnight is to make your own flowers or embellishments. We are sponsored by Mulberry Crafts with a fabulous goody bag.

DV 60

I printed some paper from Bearly Mine Designs as my main backing paper and also for the mat behind the image. The Mermaid stamp is from Lili Of The Valley. I coloured it with prisma pencils. I made my own flowers with a couple of Marianne dies and the leaves/seaweed is also a Marianne die, as is the mat behind the image. The birthday greeting was created on my pc and printed onto Safmat. I used a tombow glue pen on the flowers and the mermaids and then glittered over the top, and the starfish have been covered with a sakura clear glaze pen.
