A fabulous collection of what look like wild flowers is our inspiration for you this month at Inspiration Station.  

I thought I'd try to create my basket of flowers on some Kraft paper and use some coloured pencils.  This doesn't always work for me so it was a challenge but I was pleased how it actually worked this time.  The trick is a good white pencil and I  bought myself a new one from Faber Castell which seems to have worked a treat. 

The flower basket is an old stamp from Stampin Up - I added some stencilling behind for the basket to sit on and the little petals are also a stencil from creative Expressions.  The sentiment and extra leaf petals are from Tracy Evans. 

I'm adding this into the following:

Triple B - Blooms, Butterflies 
The flower challenge - colour your flowers 
Make My Monday - Florals 
Outlawz Challenge - Monday - AG
