Papercraft Planet Crafty Secrets Challenge

Wanted to give this challenge that Darlene posted on Papercraft Planet a try. Here is my take on Springtime flowers and keeping it clean and simple (CAS). Don't know how successful the CAS was, but there are flowers! : )

I Cuttlebugged the base CS, then chalked over the leaves with Pebbles Chalks. I've had this image colored for months (along with many others), but then went MIA on my blog and never used it. I love this Crafty Secrets Garden Girls set! The image was colored with Prismacolors blended with baby oil. I cut it out with the new Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals, chalked while still in the die, then inked the edge. The larger flowers were some in my stash, I assume some Primas. The tiny flowers I cut with a Cuttlebug die, also added some to the center of the bigger flowers. Tiara Stickles in center of all flowers. Corner punched all four corners.

Stamps: Crafty Secrets Garden Girls.
Paper: Stampin Up! and Paper Studio
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Cuttlebug leaf embossing folder, Cuttlebug flower die, Prima flowers, Stickles, Pebbles Chalks, Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals (Lg), corner punch.
