Γειά σου again,

It was raining with a thunder storm this morning, so instead of going out to the shops, I came down to my craft room...... any excuse eh ?!!

I have decided to start using all the fabulous things I collect along the way in Blogger... you know - awesome freebies and giveaways by Bloggers - that I duly collect and then file away in my huge stash file, and then forget that I've got !!   LoL

So, I'm working my way through my March stash, and on this piece I have used a fabulous new digi by SARN over at STAMPING FOR PLEASURE (the famous organiser of the monthly 'Rudolph Day' where we make cards ready for Christmas and enter her little Challenge at the same time).
But, I digress...... Sarn also draws the famous "SarnDangles" on her creations and they are fabulous. Peeps are attempting to get her to make + sell them as digis. Here's what I mean....
Cool eh ??!!! (I've put my WM over it so no-one snatches it from here).
She has this awesome way of stamping one stamp on a card and added inked backgrounds etc. in a fabulous CAS way and I attempted to emulate her style with this digi of hers called "Daisy", but it didn't work out. In the end I printed it 3 times and fussy cut bits to make it 3D. I did manage to get a splatter background but couldn't make it look as good as her creations !! LoL

I printed it 3 times and cut the whole thing once and the petals twice. I didn't stick each petal down and it looks really cool with them not quite over each other as it seems like there are loads more :-)

So, there we are... I am off to see what else I got as freebies this month and make something else :-)

Challenges I am entering:

Eclectic Ellapu - Flowers/Butterflies
Paper Creator's Crafts Challenge #21 - Spring Is In The Air
Alphabet Challenge Blog - C is for Country Flowers
