Crafty Ann's Challenge #33 - Golden Daffoldils


and the theme this fortnight has been chosen by Kym and is 
'Silver, Gold and White'

I chose to use one of Ann's pre-coloured images........these lovely daffodils.........hopefully we'll all be seeing the real thing soon.

I have decoupaged the flowers and they are mounted on to a doily which I 'coloured' with Pentouch silver pen. Underneath this is a circle of silver mirri to give the doily more substance as it was rather flimsy. There is just a tiny bit of  sparkle on the very edge of the doily.
I was reluctant to detract from the daffodils so I embossed plain white paper with the CB  textures folder.

The brad in the centre of the ribbon bow has been given the glamour dust treatment

Finished off with peel-off borders and pretty  corners. A Clean & simple look I think.

I hope you will join us this fortnight and if you want some inspiration pop over to the challenge blog and see the fabulous designs from my DT buddies.
