Simply Less is More # 217

Hello there,
Well what a week this has been. Our continuous battle of the leaky bathroom has finally been sorted out (yippee) but golly it was hard work. Every time you think you`ve solved the problem, somewhere else starts dripping. So...I haven`t had a great deal of time to get into the craft room and I apologise for my lack of commenting. Being a plumbers mate is hard work and I found myself falling into bed before ten most nights.

Anyway that`s over now so I grabbed the chance today to get crafty with this weeks Simply Less is More challenge which is to   COMBINE 3 PREVIOUS LIM CHALLENGES INTO ONE CREATION

 Oooh so many to chose from,

I apoligise for the rubbish pic. The weather is very gloomy here today no amount of editing is improving this.

The challenges I have used are, wk 3   Spring
                                                wk55  Punches/ Die cuts
and                                          wk 172 Flowers

I sponged some white linen card with yellow, orange and a touch of pink versacolour inks then spritzed it with some Docrafts gold Spritzing ink.
Cut out with a SB circle die and mounted it onto another, larger circle.
The flower is Memory box Dancing Tulips. I cut 2, one green and one red and cut the heads off to swap them. Then mounted it onto the circle using foam pads.
I`ve also added some Do Crafts Pearl Effects along the stem.
The sentiment is from TSG.
IRL the background is brighter with more yellow but, as I say the weather isn`t being kind.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
