Framed Flowers


I've found a new challenge, thanks to Darnell!  The Ribbon Carousel has a blog, a monthly challenge, and a fabulous prize.  I want one.



This month, the challenge is Giving Thanks/Fall.  My favourite autumn flowers are coneflowers/rudbeckias, whatever you want to call them, and I'm sure they come in Cajun Craze as well as yellow and pink!

The challenge at ColourQ this week is

which fits in nicely with the colour of my coneflowers!

The challenge at Less is More is to use HARWARE on your creation - brads, eyelets, clips, staples, pins, studs, or in my case, a metal ribbon slider.

The image is from Magenta, stamped in Versamark Onyx Black onto watercolour paper and coloured with water soluble pencils, cut out and mounted onto another piece of watercolour paper, then mounted onto turquoise card.  The ribbon is the hanging straps from a top - waste not, want not!

  1. What a cool image! Love the framing around the coneflowers. Great coloring ... will have to try the watercolor pencils - have them, but haven't tried them yet. Love the look of watercoloring ... so soft and subtle. Great job!

  4. Well, wow, looks like another winner to me, Shirley Bee!! Let's see, if you win one of the other two, and RCC, then I guess you'll not want to be greedy and you'll pass the RCC prize to me as commission, right? No? Oh well, it was worth a try!!
