Winter flowers

Now I know there aren't exactly a lot of flowers blooming outside in the winter but I'm bringing you some lovely winter themed flowers anyways!  I am totally in love with the newest mood board!  Take a look.


Isn't it gorgeous??  One of these years I'm going to decorate my Christmas tree in all blue and silver. It'll have to wait until the kids move out though!  Our tree is currently a hodge podge of assorted ornaments and they each have their own collection I add to every year.  They get to take them with when they move out!

Let me get back to my project and go ahead and share it with you!


When I saw all those luscious shades of blue I knew I just had to color up some flowers!  This flower is from the Time to Blossom set.  This is most definitely one of my absolutely favorite sets from Kennedy Grace Creations.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers using BG000, BG01, BG05 and a touch of BG07.  I colored the leaves using T1, T3 and T5.  Aren't they lovely?

To create the background I started with a piece of watercolor paper.  I used a snowflake stencil and distress inks to sponge two different sizes of snowflakes.  I then splattered a little water mixed with Pearl ex on the snowflakes and dabbed it up with a paper towel.  Then I thinned down silver paint and splattered that all over the background as well.

After it was all dry I heat embossed the sentiment in silver.  I cut out the watercolor paper using a stitched die and adhered it to the plaid paper.  I love this paper from Doodlebug!  This was all then layered onto a blue card base.  I added sequins from the Lemon Sorbet mix.  As a final touch I colored over the flowers with the clear Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  Check out all that shimmer in the close up!


I can't help myself so I have one more picture for you!




I hope you find some inspiration and will play along with the mood board.  We would love to see your work!  See all our links at the bottom of this post.

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
