Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop May 7th and 8th

Today we are celebrating flowers, I love flowers and am starting to wonder if our small flowers we planted will make it through the awful storms we have had here in Memphis with record rains and flooding. If you popped in to see what I am showcasing on my blog I hope you enjoy the card I made because it is full of spring flowers and beautiful butterflies from a new Northwoods Jean Arneson stamp that I just bought. If you came to participate in the Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop then you are in the right place if you came from Erin's A Girl and Her Craft Box Blog and if you would like to start at the beginning please go to Kathryn's Creations With Kathryn.
Here is the card that I made for the hop using the Northwoods stamp that I had mention before. I used my Copic Markers to color all of the images in - Boo,B02, Y13,Y115,Y19,G00,G02,G14,G17,V12,R81,R85, and R24 and Memento Black Ink for the stamping. The papers I use came from Memory Box Minuet Paper Pack. I also distressed the papers with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and added some small staples from my Tiny Attacher.
It is a little difficult to see but I added Glossy Accents to the center of the flowers to give time dimension. I love Glossy Accent it is great to give depth to a project and it is a wonderful adhesive as well.
I hope you can see the depth of my butterflies I placed some of them on pop dots, got to love pop dots for that added touch. I also used Tea Dye and Shabby Shutters Distress inks along with Chestnut Roan Ink to distress my card with.
I hope you continue onto the next stop on the hop which is with Peanut Butter & Jelly Designs by Michelle as well as going to each talent designers blogs they will be filled with fabulous flower projects, tutorials and I am sure some giveaways along the way. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have made for day 2 of the hop. Like I said I love flowers and my favorites are yellow roses and daisies. What are yours?
