Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 25

Challenge, Challenge, Challenge! It is Quixotic Paperie Challenge Day and this week we have a fab challenge from Judy:

Let Your Garden Grow

Which is all about making your own flowers to put onto your make.

Here is my DT make for you I was inspired by Elaine's scene cards for my make this week. I've used Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps from the Moonlight Whispers range available at Quixotic Paperie with Cosmo Cricket Earth Love.

I carefully singed the edges of my paper using a candle, whilst trying not to set fire to the flat. Luckily David doesn't read my blog posts, just looks at the makes - so I reckon I got away with it - Tee hee!

The flower was made from Mulberry papers and my current favourite - a bit of book page scrap :)

Ahhr Jim Lad, enjoy your pirate day you scurvy lot!
Shiver me timbers, splice the mainframe - wait up isn't that computers?

Stamps - Captain Scurvy and Cutthroat Lizzie Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
Ink - Memento Tuxedo black; Rangers Ancient linen distress ink
Papers - Cosmo Cricket Earth Love
