He loves me, he loves me not...

Hi!  Michelle here to show you a little project I created for you today. 
I'm not much of a card maker anymore but I still am completely and utterly in love with paper!
So how fitting for me to use My Mind's Eye Love Me paper. 
 
I also have this thing with flowers, daisies mostly because they are just so sweet.  I got out my scissors and paper and decided to build myself a flower from scratch. 
Okay, so it's not EXACTLY a daisy, but pretty close if you use your imagination.
Seriously, check out the petals!  Don't they look like tattered fabric?
I just HAD to add some "stitches" with my Copics. 
 
Each of the petals were created seperately on their own wire which gave them a nice little form once I was done.   I did use the Inkssentials Glue N' Seal which is some amazing stuff!  I had been using Mod Podge for the longest time until I started using this stuff.  It's great because it doesn't leave layers of glue all over my hands so papercrafting is so much more enjoyable.  I also added a second layer to my paper flower and a leaf with vintage book pages which just make me happy.  For the center I used some buttons that I airbrushed with my Copic markers.  Then I used a little Charcoal Twinery to keep the button stack together. 
 
For the little charm, I used more of the Love Me paper for the background and vintage book words.  Adhering them with Scor-Tape.
 
Hope you enjoyed my little project for today.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another fun creation from another eP Designer.
