Welcome to this month's Quick Quotes challenge, Alicia sharing today.  

I chose FLOWERS as our April challenge theme. I've created a mini bouquet of lilies for my inspiration and a wrap for the milk bottle vase.  



The steps are to create these beauties are not difficult but can take a bit of time:

  1. Die cut Quick Quotes Mulberry Paper Pack (tip use washi tape to hold your dies in place)
  2. Ink edges with Desert Sun PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  3. Ink other flower parts and create details with a marker
  4. Ink wood skewers with Light Moss PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  5. Shape flowers with tools or fingers
  6. Attach leaves and flowers to skewers with glue and/or glue dots


Here are some of the details:



I hope you are inspired to create a project with flowers for this month's Quick Quotes challenge.
