Z is for...

Well this is probably the latest I've ever submitted a dictionary challenge entry, but still just about in time!! I didn't really have the energy for crafting this evening but once I got going I found it hard to stop!
The challenge set by the craft barn was Z, including a pearl. In keeping with my natural theme I chose Z for zinnia.

I wasn't totally sure what they looked like, so having run a quick Google search I rummaged for some paper artsy stamps that I thought looked suitably similar and then coloured them with my brightest promarkers! (If you do happen to search for zinnias ever, make sure to wear your sunglasses, the results are blindingly bright!!!)

Anyway, enough chat, here's my page

As mentioned it was necessary to include a pearl so I used liquid pearls in bisque and garnet for the centre of the flowers. I also added a fair amount of doodling to finish off.
Thanks for stopping by.
