If you are playing along with the SWIRLYDOOS Blog Hop Block party...then you are in the right place!
First, take a peek at Lisa Valentine's wonderful projects for Spring with our new Petaloo Floradoodles!
I picked up this little lavender wreath for a few dollars at Micheal's and new exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Have you seen Petaloo's new chipboard pieces??? Have ya?? You have now! I painted the butterflies with some Shimmerz and then embossed them with Ranger's Bridal Embossing Powder. I embellished them with pearls and some of Petaloo's Feathers!! Yum......
The flowers are Flora Doodles that I combined to create little colorful magnolias. Suh-weet!
THEN, I found myself inspired by a vintage stock photo I found. I looked at the picture....looked at the bright and springy Flora Doodles....looked back at the picture and heard the theme to Hawaii Five 0 in my head (and visions of a shirtless Alex O'loughlin). *walkin' it off* I knew that I wanted to create a 1950's style card with art deco colors and a tropical feel.
OK, this really isn't my normal style, but every once in a while you just have to let loose and do something different.
Flora Doodles Tye-Dyed Gypsies are too cute and absolutely perfect for the look I was going for. I topped them off with a Bird Dazzler.
That cute little frame is part of Petaloo's new chipboard collection.
Thank you for stopping by!
