QUIRKY CRAFTS GDT

Hello Peeps from a wet and windy Greece today !!
A little while back I was invited to do a GUEST DT spot over at QUIRKY CRAFTS and I am delighted to tell you that today my time has come :-D
The current Challenge #5 over at QUIRKY is called "Secret Garden" and was inspired by the 1993 Movie of that name.
The two awesome Sponsors are SAMAFLORA and a lady that is new to me UNKY.
I got to play with a lovely image from UNKY called "Braided Hair Big Eyed Flower Fairy" and I got a bit carried away and made two pieces.



For my first one, I coloured the image using Copics. I used 'Garden Corner' which was a free image that came from .... I think it was The Graphics Fairy... which I just colour changed to a dark green and then I found this lovely little poem on the Web called 'secret Garden' by Linda Hall.
I mounted everything onto some pale green Moondust Paper from Southfield Paper People, and added some flowers from my stash.


Then I got another idea. I coloured the image digitally and then made a 6" frame which I stamped with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in a random fashion. I placed the coloured image inside and then decorated the frame with die cut leaves. The Glitter Flowers and Glitter Flies are from Boutique Elements.

There are some gorgeous creations from QUIRKY's full time DT, so I hope you will pop over and have a looksee. :-)

Thank you QUIRKY CRAFTS  for having me along for the ride. xx
