Check out Penny's post for details but to cut a long story short I cut my circles, stamped and coloured. All the stamps are PaperArtsy, from EDY06 or the Bloom set. I used two shades of blue acrylic to make my pond and then coloured all the flowers and leaves with Galaxy Markers. I was having a challenge getting a mirror stamp of Bloom herself until the little grey cell sugested stamping on tissue paper! Genius. I coloured both images with Promarkers. I was afraid they might bleed on the tissue but they didn't. I stuck one onto card and fussy cut then stuck the reverse image on the back.
I found that Bloom was a little short to see over the vegetation but because I had only a single layer of card I improvised with a heart rock and a little bridge. If you are wondering what she is standing on these are plastic corks from the milk carton which are going to be feet on her island.
Not so successful between the wind and bright sun but I did find a nice floweredy bush for a backdrop.
