Well, it's time for our next Feature Friday Challenge over at The Character Cafe! Yeah! It's so easy to win some of their fabulous images. For this month we are using the color orange and this week there's an additional recipe of: 1 - flower, 2 - brads, & 3 - gems. See - that's not too difficult. Now hopefully you're not all burned out with orange. Remember that there are several shades of orange. And nothing says HOW MUCH orange you have to use. (Shhhh, don't tell anyone that I said this.) LOL! Why don't you stop by The Character Cafe and see what the rest of the design team has put together. The prize is a $5 gift certificate to the store.This little guys name is "Flutter", isn't he cute? I used my nestibilities to make the circles, and I made the tag by rounding off all of the corners, puching a hole at the end and adding twine to hang it with. The lace raffia is some I got from the UK. (I've wanted some of this since I first saw it several months ago, and it seems that they don't sell it here in the US.) I like the way the MS punch goes along with the raffia so perfectly. The brads and jewels are some I've had for ages. Now to the flower - I'm really thrilled as to how it came out. This is another flower I learned how to make by following instructions on You Tube. The video can be found by searching for TheJbrideau or "Flower Tutorial - Prima Petite Mums". I used the "button" on pg. 38 of Paisley. Then I misted them with my homemade glimmermist, used my promarkers to bleed the colors together and added the brad and jewel for the center.
