One Stitch at a Time Challenge 105

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to make it girly! (An ideal challenge for Mother's Day too!)

Our sponsors this week are
Now, there's a lot of scope with this theme, but for me, there's nothing girlier than flowers!
So, I took Delicious Doodles gorgeous image Floral Watering Can which is available at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. I coloured it with Promarkers, first deciding to have a pink and purple theme for the blooms. Then I decided that the watering can just had to be green, but since the flowers were already fairly dark, I decided to go for a limish green. The result was very bright, and I initially despaired of finding some paper to work with the colours. (Note: illogically, I didn't do it the other way round. I rarely do!) Then, I remembered a paper pad I got with a magazine a while ago. I can rarely resist magazines that give paper pads (unless they're full of cute critters, of course), but I have to say that the colours in this pad are so bright I wondered if I'd ever manage to use them (I think it's a Kate Knight pad with the word Tropical in there somewhere.) Anyway, to my amazement, it seemed to work perfectly, so I added a lime green mat or two, die cut a mat in a strong purply-pink, then some die cut flowers (Spellbinders) and butterfly (Marianne) and a couple of sticky gems.

Having done it, I think I'll probably be using more of that pad, as I like the result - even if sunglasses are needed!

I hope you can join us this week, and I wish every mum out there a very happy day! I'm off the the Stitch and Craft show at Olympia with my daughter, so I'll have to wait to link this card to challenges when I get back!

Digital Tuesday where the theme is 'think spring',
I Love Promarkers where anything goes,
