Different flowers for WOYWW

Morning all - again I say where does the time go.....

its Wednesday yet again and time for WOYWW
over at 

Here is my photo today - I went for a 2 mile walk "around the block" 
and picked some flowers along the way. 

I was very lucky and Won the 6" Gelli plate from over 
on Art Room Blog many thanks Lee.

Going to have a play with it today using the leaves I picked yesterday. 

I would like to show you my card for today 

Been using up some of my stash and found this which I had started about 
3 months ago! And thought I know just how to use that today.

I had started with Clarity Stamp petal shape inked in black archival inks

 Used Ken Oliver Burst on the paper spraying with water to 
make the background. 

Using red distress inks to colour card blank, found 
scrapes of white and red cards to help mat and layer

Coloured in the flower with red pens to highlight the flower. 

Found some scraps of ribbon to mount onto the sides of the red white mats.
using red tape. 

Final part mat and layer all bibs and bobs together. 

Glad I found a use for my stash again. Is my box of bibs and bobs going down
dont be silly - I just can not throw anything away... how about you? 

So a different flower from the original photo :) 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping over and I really appropriate all 
your lovely comments. 

Will report back with my efforts using the Gelli plate 
over the next few days - all being well - the success and the 
failures ... all a learning curve. :) 

Have a great day

  1. Love the small display of wild flowers Pen seeing them cheered me up, we still have snow falling from laden sky's but thankfully it's not lying.

    Love the card it's a real statement piece in a glorious colour

  2. Your card is very pretty. I smiled when I read the part about your box of bib and bobs, because I have one that never seems to go down, no matter how much stuff from it I use. Happy WOYWW!

  3. Well done. The card is lovely - always make you feel good when using up things you have already started... The wild flowers are gorgeous!
    Take care. God bless.

  15. A really pretty card. Love the strong colours.
