Isabella Sketchbook last challenge

It's time for another challenge over on Isabella's Sketchbook, but this week is to be the last one. Isabella has had to finish the DT as she needs to concentrate on things at home for a while. I know I speak for the whole team when I say that we've enjoyed working with Isabella's images and I'm sure you will see them again. So on to the challenge for this week which is quite an easy one of hand made flowers. The image I've used is Watering Can Garden and I've shaded it with ProMarkers and then cut it out with Labels 5 Nestabilities. I've blended some Spiced Marmalade DI around the edge. The background is made with Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade DI and I've stamped with a stamp from the Baroque Motifs set by Stampin' Up.

All of the flowers, the swirls and the moth are all made from Grunge paper which I've coloured with DI. The swirls are a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die, the large flower is made with a Bigz Sizzix die and the moth is a Paper Artsy stamp which I've cut out and added some pearls. The gorgeous brad is a Marah Johnson, which I'm still on the hunt for some more!

I hope you're able to join us for this last challenge.

Thanks for looking
