Waterlillies

Here is next weeks lesson, the flower that is, I am not capable of teaching the other stuff LOL, it is crafted in Vellum, painted with oil pastels and blended with Zippo lighter fluid! It's a lovely flower to make, comes together beautifully, I am sure you will enjoy.........the flower this week is Sally's choice.  I used a Mo Manning image "Finna the Fairy..you can find her here:  http://digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.com....I coloured her and the background with "( awww.....can't remember the name, the coloured paints in little pots.  The paints are glittery and are the ones from Luminart before Mica colour) Everything glitters on this card, I tried to make it look as tho Finna had floated down in a bubble to land on the waterlillies in the pond :-))
Love Jenni
I am entering it in the Papertake Weekly challenge, which calls for Pastel colours.http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com

ps. to answer the questions from the last flower, mostly I give the cards I make as gifts, but lately have just been using blue tac to attach the flowers to the cards, then once the lesson is over, I remove them, put them on a long stem and have them in a vase in my dining room, others I have displayed in "shadow boxes" with glass fronts......some are in a box in the wardrobe waiting for stems
