It was my turn to pick the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping this month and I chose Florals
I love this flower from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden set, but must admit I'm not so keen on the stems, so I tried a different arrangement. I used watercolour paper and Peeled Paint for a watery wash base.
I fussy cut the flower heads after colouring with Distress Inks, marked the base card where I was going to arrange them and then used Peeled Paint and Forest Moss to stamp some leaf sprigs. I die cut some Sizzix Spring Greens and used a leaf stamp with Forest Moss to give some definition. I used foam tape to attach the flowers and the die cut leaves.
There's some fabulous inspirational makes from the rest of the DT, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find details of our Sponsor, InkArtDesigns, who is offering one lucky random winner a stamp from the shop.
I am entering this at Stamping Sensations - Close to Nature
Thanks for calling in today and now that the weather has returned to 'normal' after the mini heatwave, I need to do some catching up in the craft room after spending so much time in the garden - well that might have been summer! you just don't know.
