The Bouquet

“Puzzling TicTacToe”  &

My card uses the middle line – insect, flowers and woodgrain and it also includes the double dare as it has bling added too. I started with one of my new Taylored Expressions layering stencils called Hexagon and after adding the mask I proceeded to ink up the panel using Distress Oxides. Once that was done I took a Sissix EB folder and dry embossed the bark wood grain. On another piece I stamped the daisies from a GKD set called Daisy Delight and coloured them with a mix of pencils and Copics. When happy I fussy cut them out. Added a few bits of foam at the back and then onto card front. From the same set I used the ladybug stamp, fussy cut and then added in the corner. Sentiment was stamped onto a sss says banner die and I found a small paper bow in my stash and added that to the flower stems. A few gems for flower centers and a pearl on the bow and the card was complete.

    1. Thanks Lisa – Had fun doing this one, but wish my photo was a bit better. Couldn’t get the lighting right today.


  1. Great job on our Double Trouble 3-part challenge, Johanna! Your softer woodgrain panel allows the flowers to shine. Wish I was as good a colorist as you are! Thank you for sharing your creative talents with us this week! -Donna

  3. Love the woodgrain panel and the hexagon stencil. Pretty design and what patience you have for fussy cutting. I’d be gluing petals back on my flowers. LOL.

  4. You made me laugh – I have to say that smaller designs I’d have a problem with that happening, but the bigger ones like this just require slow and patient. Thanks for the chuckle.


  5. That woodgrain embossing folder is very pretty and love the technique you used for coloring and masking for the hexagon… your flowers look so nice against it. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Cupcake Inspirations.
