I “handmade with love” for you a card. Simple and out of my heart:
Who doesn’t love flowers, and is there any occasion when flowers considered to be inappropriate? Hardly can think if there’s any. Well, I was beginning with one of my favorite Stampotique stamps: France Papillon’s design cube. I stamped the background with distress embossing ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I colored my background with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (c’est la vie cerise and bachelor button blue).
While it dried I colorized some tissue paper also with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (yellow rose of Texas and wild honeysuckle coral). Then I used Janet Klein’s small flower stamp with archival ink to stamp my flowers. At that point I wasn’t sure how it will end, I just wanted fragile layered flowers, like soft petals.
That’s another piece that needed to dry, so back to my card I stamped there my flowers as well, just to see where I could dropped them. Then somehow they asked for some stalks, so I took my sewing machine and I added them with green thread.
I cut my flowers from tissue paper, (mission nearly impossible as tissue paper is so fragile and as you cut it, the layers are falling apart, so be careful) then I was beginning to layer them, every flower become three layers at the end, I tried to photo it for you hopefully there’s something visible:
Finally I added an orange ribbon and my text “handmade with love”.
Hope you liked my flowers, if you would like to see more why don’t you jump over to Stampotique designer’s challenge and take a look at the great creations there!
