Petaloo's "Color Me Crazy" Challenge Submissions

Petaloo is having an awesome challenge using their "Color Me Crazy" products.

Here are my submissions for the challenge:


I made this layout for the round robin challenge at Swirlydoos. My friend and scrap idol, Lisa Gregory made this layout to kick off the challenge: , and this is my take on her fabulous creation.

I used the Swirlydoos July kit for this layout. The bigger blooms are Petaloo from the "mixed florals" pack.

Here's some close ups of what I did: I used an alcohol ink pen to touch the edges of the blooms. On the ones that have open petals, I also drew thin lines with the alcohol ink for more dimension. Then, I used my finger to apply some Distress Stickles in Tattered Rose.


I made this album for a class I taught at my local scrapbook store recently. This was the store and class sample, so it got pretty banged up. The poor flowers didn't survive, so I thought I would repair the cover with some Color Me Crazy blooms.

Here's a close up of what I did. First, I used some blue Magical Mica with water to the tips, then I sprayed them with some light brown Glimmer Mist. When the blooms were dry, I used some brown fairy dust glitter on the tips.


I wanted to make the CMC hydrangeas bold to contrast with the soft papers I used on this card. I started by saturating the blooms with pink Magical Mica and water. I only wanted them to look pink on the back so when they were molded you could see that. Once they were dry, I painted them with black Glimmer Glam and shaped them before they dried. When dry, I painted some lines from the center with some green Smooch paint, then put some pearls in the middle.
