Alpha Challenge - Letter B

I knew what I was going to do for the letter B in the Craft Barns Alpha Challenge as soon as I saw the buttercups flowering in the meadows where I walk the dogs. The meadows looked so beautiful. I picked a few of the flowers to press in the dictionary that I'm pulling to pieces for my journal.


I've no idea who made the stamp that I used. I water coloured the flowers with Distress ink and adhered my dried flowers.

Here is a close up of the word in the dictionary.


and here are a couple of photos of the buttercups in the meadows.

  2. Beautiful buttercups! And I think that I recognise the flower stamp as being a Craft Stamper freebie from 2008 (thanks to my Lists!)

  5. Love your bright colourful page, the single yellow looks fab and what a great, unusual word to choose - and the addition of the real buttercup finishes it off perfectly

  14. Lovely bright page.Funny buttercups are considered such weeds here in New Zealand that they never allowed to grow that tall - they are mown down to a nub or permanently disposed off. Consequently we miss out on pretty meadows.
