Here is my only original creation. I had one more seniment left to use and I just didn't want to color ALL of those little flowers so this was my way to cheat:
And here are my lazy-fied copies:
The first was Michelle Wooderson's botanical project found here. Her project is far more detailed but I was too chicken to try and copy it exactly. I used a Stampin-up blender pen w/ Certainly Celery and Sahara Sand ink to color the image:
Then there was all of the Nichole Heady goodness. You can find all of the inspiration for these here.
I believe Nichole used Q-tips to apply the white ink to her flowers but mine were upstairs, dangerously close to my sleeping children so I used my blender pen again:
Next up was this version which required much less coloring:

Whew!! Now to move on to the rest of this months purchases!
