MMSC100 -- Flowers

It's Tuesday and time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC100)!  I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of all the rain and am looking forward to the sunny, flower-filled days of May.  With that being said, I couldn't resist using two of my favorite digital flower images by  "priscillastyles" -- Vase of Flowers and the flower bouquet which I cropped from the "Man With"  set.  

I created a frame and filled the Vase of Flowers with a textured background -- this was done in a Word document using "picture format".  I colored both images with Copics and glazed the flowers with a clear glaze pen.  The vase itself is covered with liquid glass.  I also punched 2 large scallop squares, 1 smaller scallop square, a circle, and small corners which I incorporated into my design.  Tiny black rhinestones and metal dots were used to embellish the flowers and corners.
