Petaloo Blog Hop - Day 4!

Greetings and Happy Thursday to you!
 
Exciting news and super fun week for us here on the blog...

We are so thrilled to be partnering all this week with our friends at Petaloo!
 
*****

Hi everyone, Donna Coughlin here with you to blog hop with Petaloo and Quick Quotes! I am super excited to share with you these fabulous Petaloo flowers and embellishments and of course Quick Quotes' all new line called Sheer Joy!.  What better way with this beautiful picture of my granddaughter?

The frames I cut from the Silhouette, and the outside frame I dabbed it with a little Quick Quotes Biscotti PowderPuff Chalk Ink just to give a little definition and make it pop a little.

On the chipboard pieces I also used the PowderPuff Chalk Inks, and believe it or not I add some Biscotti ink to the Petaloo flowers just to soften them up a bit and make them blend in with the Quick Quotes paper better. After I dabbed the ink on the flowers I misted them with water and immediately blotted them with a paper towel to help the blending and dry it faster.


My favorite kind of flower are burlap flowers and these are just so beautiful. The Spring Berry clusters make a perfect accent to the flowers.

 
Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Petaloo blog!
