Scrap the Art challenge 6


This fortnight on Scrap the Art we have used the 'Hand with reflecting sphere' by M.C.Esher ca. 1935 as our inspiration. I decided to go for a monochrome theme as Esher worked almost exclusively in black and white and his style was very graphic so I wanted to use a strong image and repeat it. I doodled a couple of flowers which I printed out in various different sizes I then cut them out and edged them with distress inks and misted with water to soften them. I then scrunched them up to shape them a bit and stuck them on my die cut circles, adding a few little paper flowers to fill the gaps. I finished it off with some diamonte gems and a button in the centre. I'm still debating whether to add a sentiment but really not sure about that. The flowers will be available on Cardmadfairy's Creations later today.

I'm also entering the card in the following challenges:
DU2D - Flowers
Polka Doodles - Monochrome
Dutch Dare - Repeat Something
Paper Play - No Patterned Paper
Our Creative Corner - Blooming Blossoms
Secret Crafter - Distressing
