Inspiration Challenge at SplitcoastStampers

Today's challenge over at SplitcoastStampers Insipration Challenge came from
Holy cow - some absolutely gorgeous cakes she's done.  I can't even begin to imagine the amount of time and patience it takes.  I couldn't figure out how to capture the photos for the 2 cakes I chose to be inspired by, but they're the Lavendar Anemones and the Purple and Yellow Pansies cakes.

I took this image from A Day for Daisies, "Pansy Fairy", and colored her with Copics.  I added a thin ribbon of diamond Stickles to the perimeter of her wings to keep it light and soft.  I then sponged some clouds for the background.  I used my Creative Memories circle cutting system to cut an arch out of the image & mat.

The background papers are digital from Two Peas in a Bucket's "Dreams 'n Hopes" paper set.  I stamped an additional flourish in garden green on the green paper before matting on garden green.  Finished off with a Hero Arts Sentiment, circle punched, and popped some pearls on the open pansies and the sentiment then a pretty purple bow.

Hope you like it!
