I have two creations to show you this week. The first is a little wall plaque using Petaloo flowers that I coloured using food colouring. I altered the artist's canvas that I bought from the Crazy Store (our South African equivalent to a dollar store). It has a cute duck image on it, but I covered that with some well aimed spray paint. I covered the canvas with some hand-made paper, and stitched on a piece of a vintage lace collar, and added the sprig of Petaloo flowers. As extra embellishments I used a metal disc (part of el-cheapo earrings) and three glass pebbles.

My second creation is a card made according to the MMSC sketch for this week, and, once again, Petaloo flowers coloured using food colouring. The DP's are gift wrap that is just fabulous ... images of bicycles and motor cards, cogs, and all the wonderful inspirational words. The coordinating roll has no images, just the
words. It matched my chippie bicycle perfectly

Did you enter the Petaloo challenge on their blog? The winners will be posted on their blog on July 27 - Good Luck!

Love and hugs
