Thursday is LSS!

First - go buy this stamp (doodle daisy) HERE. You can also get the awesome new set Lindsay put together - with tons of (digi) flower and sentiment stamps for her low set price of $5 HERE. You could also just go buy out her whole STORE and be about as happy as can be... (oh, I forgot to mention Lindsay is now featured on a new website - MY GRAFICO - check it out!)

This project was inspired by 3 different challenges. They are Flutter By, Truly Scrumptious, and CopicsColourChallenge.
I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious. I added in the Flutter By challenge (include a butterfly) by putting the butterfly up in the corner of my image - in place of the suggested sentiment. I tried to get one of the sentiments from Lindsay's new doodle flower set on there, but I wanted one of the sentiments that are in waves to go around the circle and I'm so far from tech savvy today that I couldn't figure it out. I probably (duh) should have just asked Lindsay, but I was happy with how the journal turned out anyway. Oh, the sketch also had a recipe with it -- three flowers, three brads, and three pearls. (In this case, the brads ARE the flowers and I used my liquid pearlz to dot in three of the little center thingies on the flower stamp.) The final challenge was copic, to use R20-Blush (ring around the flower center) E33-Sand (inner ring of the flower) and YG06-Yellowish Green (the stem/leaf). I also used stickles (cotton candy) to color in and dimensionalize (if that's not a word, it should be) the flower.
The "background" paper for the journal covers is from the paper studio's Pink Armadillo set - oh, same for the blue/pink circles. The giant brads came from oriental trading co. (I hope that's all the details... and all the parentheses too!)

Thanks for looking, now head on over to the other designers' blogs for lots more eye candy, and Lindsay's blog, because she is totally amazing, wonderful, talented, and just plain cool!
