A flowery personality ?

Hello everyone,

and welcome to another Stampotique Designers' Challenge. Our host this week is the lovely Carol and she wants us to include some flowers in our projects. This is what she had to say about her theme:

'Spring is just around the corner in the UK. So share a project with flowers on it.'

I've made an art journal and here it is:

This page was made on some Mixed Media paper. This paper works particularly well with acrylic paint, I think. I used Dina Wakley's yummy paints for this. I blended them with my fingers and then used a Dylusions stencils to add the polkadots using the same paints and some white. The black dots were added with another stencil, this time a Tim Holtz layering stencil, and some black paint. Next I stamped the background; not too much as there was already a lot going on. Jasper was stamped on white card stock and directly onto the page. I coloured him with Copic Markers and cut him out. I then adhered him onto his twin on the page. This was it doesn't show if you didn't cut it out perfectly. 
Next I stamped the flowers and gave them the same treatment. 
I found the quote on the internet and thought it was quite funny together with Jasper as he has a great personality ! It was typed, cut into strips and adhered to the page. Lastly I went around the page with a black pen and that was it ! 

I used the following stamps :

We would love it if you played along with us and created something with flowers on. You could win one of the two $30 vouchers at the end of the month. It is not allowed to use digi's and you can only enter once for each challenge. Apart from that, just have fun ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
