BLOOMTANGLED Blog Hop & Linky Party


I'm absolutely delighted to be joining several of the STAMPlorations gals for round two of colouring fun: the Bloomtangled Blog Hop and Linky Party.  This hop is in celebration of Shery's second colouring book, Bloomtangled, a work of art with its marvelous flowers, leaves and, of course, *tangles*!

I have a set of four cards and one framed project to share.

Several of the flowers on this page spoke 'snowflake' to me, so I heeded their call, using a variety of blue prismacolour pencils. I added the lovely intricate Flutter Zen 2 Butterfly and a three-layers-stacked Celebrate CUTploraition. Everything is set atop a panel using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

With the leftovers, I was able to create a second card, using the solid image from Flutter Zen 2 Butterfly, a bit of Dots All Over stenciling and a sentiment from Trendy Butterflies 2.

My third card was an attempt at 'subtle'...yellows, greys and just a whisper of green (prismacolours and polychromos pencils). The popped up panel is the smallest rectangle from the Crazy Double Stitch Running Dies; a stacked Thanks Cutplorations is the final touch.  I added Wink of Stella to the grey flowers...shimmery in real life.

Again, no pieces left behind...a snippet of the colouring page, another Flutter Zen 2 Butterfly and a sentiment from Trendy Feathers (which I think may be retired...)

Finally, a page of 'sunflowers' that I couldn't bear to I just put the page into a sunny blooms make me smile...

Okay...enough from me. Time to put YOU to work! Here's your agenda *grin*

Please comment on all our blogs and also download the sampler page, color it, create something with it (card, ATC, bookmark, anything) and then link it up to our linky for a chance at the prizes.

Commenting and linking up closes on Tuesday, September 5.

- one commenter randomly drawn from the STAMP blog and designers blogs will win a $10 gift certificate to the store
- one participant randomly drawn from the linky party entries will win a copy of Bloomtangled and a $15 gift certificate to the store

Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 10.

Looking forward to seeing your versions of the colouring page in the gallery!
