If Friends Were Flowers

This had started as a bookmark, but now after its completion its a thin and long card. The Image is from Faith, thank you for giving us such wonderful images to play with. I was a little confused in the beginning that how i will handle this...? but then got confident when i started with it.

A close up to give an idea of the added dimension. The flower leaves are printed twice and then raised with   a two way tape to add dimension like we usually do in decoupage.

Its colored with my color pencils, raised a little to add dimension. The sentiment is also from Designed 2 Delight.

I have Jute under the image. The Patterned paper that you are seeing is actually a graph paper of which i have colored 2 tiny blocks of each bigger square. It sure was a time consuming job but i love the results, hope you like them too. I like square shapes and i wanted to do something which is not a square with a square, i hope i am making sense (like a flower and butterflies with a square pattern paper).

The Butterflies are internet downloads colored with markers and finished of with a pearl from my stash.
