~Color Me Crazy~Petaloo & Swirlydoos

Petaloo is having a contest, it's for their "Color Me Crazy" collection. You can do anything to these items, ink them, chalk them, anything you can dream up. I used several different techniques on these blooms which I will detail below. I used papers from the July Swirlydoos kit for this as well. And did this for the Once Upon A Sketch also. This is our dd on her wedding day, putting on her make-up. I had the thought that this was the last time that she put her makeup on as "Jenna Hamil", the next time was as a married woman!

On the leaves I just used a Zig marker, I colored on the back side of the leaves for a softer look, then I just used stickles around the edges and on the veins. On the chipboard I first coated the entire piece with gesso, then Lumiere mixed with perfect pearls. Then I covered with Shimmerz pixie dust and last used alcohol ink on top.
For the blooms, the larger one is colored with Zig marker, then covered with pixie dust. Then I added stickles. For the smaller blooms I colored the yellow centers with Zig markers also. The little tan bloom was colored with chalk, then pixie dust. And the lillie bloom was painted with Lumiere mixed with latte alcohol ink, then pixie dust and I used puffy paint on the edges.
The tiny blue blooms were chalked and pixie dusted. I had so much fun trying different mediums on these blooms and leaves. I have a bunch left and plan on doing lots more things with them!!!
