A Bucket of Roses

Hello ...
It feels so good to be back in my little room surrounded by my craft supplies ... even though I dearly miss my Aunt and Miss Sheba ... her cat ... who would bound into my bedroom every morning to say good morning!

Today starts another challenge at City Crafter and this week sweet Charlene has picked a beautiful photo to inspire us ...

 ...and her challenge theme is 
Flower Power

Char is asking that we create a project that includes 
a minimum of 5 flowers and at least 2 different backgrounds - either DP or mixed media

I was so taken by this photo that I wanted to somehow replicate that bucket of flowers and this is what I came up with

I rubbed the brick embossing folder with silver ink to try and mimic the distressed chair and IRL it is more aqua

I love the little bucket ... I just hand cut a shape from silver mat card and stamped it in London Fog ink with a crackled effect and made a little handle from craft wire ... Foam pads help to give it some shape

This week's winner will also have a guest spot with us at CCCB so get out your supplies and come and join us ... remember you don't have to mimic the photo ... just follow the challenge theme 
I can't wait to see what you come up with
