2TC#2 I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

    Hello, hello, hello!!  Guess what day it is today?!   It is Twisted Tuesday and I am so excited to share this week's Challenge with you!  The challenge is called I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and  so your project must use flowers.  The twist (because every Tuesday has one!) is that your flowers cannot be roses or rosettes!!  That leaves the possibilities open for all kinds of other fun flowers though!!  I decided to go with a picket fence scene with lots of wild flowers growing out from behind it.  Take a look:

I went with a blue background to mimic the sky and added all kinds of different flowers!  The two large flowers are punches and the smaller ones are all cut from Big Shot dies.  To make the large flowers I punched them twice, crumpled up the pieces, pulled apart the layers and stacked them on top of each other.  I added twine tied button centers.  The smaller flowers are all cut and layered on top of each other.  I stamped the centers with the polka dot balloon stamp from the set Up, Up and Away.

The fence is made from the Word Window punch and the leaves are all punched from the 2 Step bird punch.

Up close view of the flowers and happy flutter-byes!

The sentiment is from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I used a white gel pen to add the dots around the edges to tie in with the polka dotted centers of the flowers.
