eTeams Pick Challenge . . .

Happy Friday everyone,
Just stopping by with a little project I popped together for eclectic Paperie eTeam Picks Challenge hosted by the lovely and very talented Sherry and the theme this time is . . .
Flowers
It`s Friday which means it`s time to link up with Friends with Flair over on Unity Stamp Co.
Check out all the inspiration over on these blogs...stunning!!
I grabbed a few supplies from the eP Shop . . . 
along with strips of material leftover from my wings  project, cardboard packaging and white Acrylic paint.
Sooooo easy to make this . . . 
Just slather the white paint all over the cardboard 
{ Impatient I am,so dried it with my trusty heat tool,lol }
Splodged the distress stains on my craft mat , spritzed with water and taking my brush flicked all over for splats of yummy color!
It was time to twist and roll the fabric into fat, fabulous flowers...
Fixed in place with my hot glue gun..owwww...yep I got burnt!!!
Added color with Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Fired Brick and Walnut Stain, mixing them with a little water first.
Chopping pretty paper to make the stems, a little doodle doodle doo was added with a fine liner.
 More snipping of the material to make some leaves, coloring with more Distress Stains . . . can you tell how much I looove Distress Stains yet,lol!
Hands up . . . I have a brand new looove to share with you all . . .
Pink Paislee -Christy Tomlinson Border rub ons . . . they are FABULOUS and so,so easy to apply!!
You will looooooove them.
Amost forgot, I did add a little clear embossing powder in parts for added texture.

Fancy playing along . . . then just click HERE.

Well that`s all from me today.
Thank you for looking
Happeee crafting
Hugs
XOXOX
