I'm joining in the blog hop at papertrey ink and I picked the second bouquet for my colours http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2013/05/may-2013-blog-hop-.html and as the theme at a passion for papertrey is all about nature - flowers fall nicely into place for that challenge too
Then for my layout, I followed Lesley's photo inspiration at Fusion challenge http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/fusion-card-challenge-hypothesis-8.html
So I pulled out "The Sweet Life" stamp set and matching dies along with inks as close to the pti colours as I could find in my supplies and this is what I made....
I stamped and cut 3 large roses and one small one in pinks and oranges and then some leaves in olive greens. The little mason jar is actually a clearly besotted die cut from white striped vellum and then coloured with copics on the reverse for a watery look. I stood the jar on some grey dp which I ran through my new stampin up fancy fans embossing folder. I finished with a large PTI sentiment across the jar.
