Janey's Digis Red Hot Poker

purple instead as I thought it would make a nice twist on the normal colours you see this vibrant flower.

I have used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers in various shades of purples making it very light at the bottom and going up to much more vibrant colours at the top. It was fun to play with different colours and keep blending and adding until I was happy with it.

I have used sketch #10 by I {Heart} Card Sketches for the layout. It really suited the shape of the image and allowed me to mat it on a piece of metallic cardsrtock which is actually a panel from a box of perfume, Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears. Pretty perfect as it is a sweet floral scent and the box was too pretty not to use. The butterfly paper is from the Dreamcatcher pad by First Edition.

The sentiment is a digi freebie from MM Designs and as it is blooming snowing again it is very true of how I see the spots of colour that lovely flowers bring. I have used an assortment of fabric and paper flowers all held together with a glittery Papermania brad.

The Red Hot Poker image can be purchased from the Etsy store. For inspiration please pop over to the blog and Facebook page where our very talented designers will be regularly showcasing these amazing images.
