If you are looking for an astounding amount of floral inspiration, just check out the links for the May PTI Blog Hop! The theme for the month is flowers. PTI has some amazing flower sets, but I decided to take a little bit of a different direction, and make a flower out of a Delightful Doily - especially fun since I just recently purchased the coordinating dies!
I sponged my background using Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and Pure Poppy inks, working from the center outward. I colored my doily with Copics, using shades of orange and Hawaiian Shores, and then created a center using the frame and sentiment from Tag-Its #1.
I "double-stamped" the stem from Flower Fusion #1, added the bee from Tag-Its 3, the flight trail from Boy Basics: Frog Hop, the "friend" from Flutterby Friends and grass from Love Lives Here.
Both the flower and the flower center are popped up on dimensional adhesive for added fun! :)
Thanks for looking!
