Petaloo & QQ Day 1

Day 1
(Blog hop & prizes)

Greetings from Rhonda!

We were so very spoiled with this cross promotional partnership with Petaloo! I can’t even begin to say how totally beautiful these flowers are! When I looked at all of those gorgeous colors in the flowers, I wanted to challenge myself to combine them and our Quick Quotes lines.
For my project, I used bits of several of our beautiful lines to mix things up! You’ll find some gears layered under my flowers. I included a bit of burlap because it just seems to work so beautifully with the Cherry Truffle line.
I thought it would be fun to bring out some more yellow, so I dry brushed some acrylic buttercream paint underneath my frosted flowers. To create a bit of a “sun” accent, I layered the larger flower into my big gear. I also layered one of the smaller frosted flowers with a gear diecut and my Petaloo flowers.

Good morning crafty friends,

I'm MELIN and today I am sharing a post for the Quick Quotes blog in conjunction with the fabulous Petaloo company.

Here is a project I made for this occasion!

Here is a picture of the layout. The “Lace” square was cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge. The circular border was cut using the Elegant Edges Cartridge.

Here is a close up of the beautiful quote and butterfly from Quick Quotes as well as the gorgeous flowers from Petaloo.

Here is another shot of the beautiful flowers.
