Twisted Thursday--Add Flowers

Welcome to another week of Shirley's 2 Girls' Twisted Tuesday! What is the twist this week? ADD FLOWERS! I started with this adorable Spring Fever digi and I printed it twice. After coloring everything with Copic Markers, I cut out the grass and the red, yellow and orange flowers from one image and then added them to the second one with foam tape. Here you can see the side view:

I used DCWV's Citrus paper pack, this is one of my favorite lines of papers ever! Lots of yellows, oranges and reds. I also added some flower brads that I have had for a while. to color the grass, I used YG03, YG06 and G7, the flowers are R22, R24, Y00, Y06, YR04, YR07, Boo and B02. the bumble bee is colored with Y06 and a Sakura Stardust pen on the wings. 

We would love for you to join us on the challenge blog this week. All you have to so is create your project--remember the twist of adding flowers-- and then go to the challenge blog and link your project. Using a S2G image is not absolutely necessary, but if you have them please let us see what you do with them! The rest of the design team has some great things ready for you to see too and you can find the links to their blogs on my side bar.

((((PSSST......if you join our groups on PCP and SNR, there are some free digis available right now and one of them is a flower....perfect for this week's challenge!!!))))

My comment is actually in the posting from Carrie. Apparently my daughter started a blog and had logged in on my computer and I didn't realize it when I started commenting. So basically the Carrie is me...sorry for the confusion.

There is a card designed to make anyone smile, what happy bright colors! I like the popped up flowers too (you must have a really good camera, mine would never take a close up shot like that. :))
