Handmade/Floral Challenge at FSC
To know me is to know that I shudder at the thought of making handmade flowers.
For this challenge it isn’t necessary to make your own,
but how would that be challenging myself?
(sometimes I wonder about myself)
Thanks Fliss for this challenge…it really was fun!
I had treated myself to the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die set recently
and found that there is a small one in the set which looks great,
so I made 3 flowers in some of my favourite colours.
Then I had to come up with a card!
I am also taking part in the Claudine Hellmuth Collage for Composition course this month
so I have tried to incorporate some of the things I am learning into this card.
And toilet paper!
Yes, the gorgeous blue and yellow background is toilet paper.
Rolled through my cuttlebug and sprayed with dylusional inks
and a little Perfect Pearls Mist.
(thanks Shirl, our industrious leader, for that idea)
I am really liking the flakey, natural look of it.
Other details for those following are the memory box die that I have used as a flourish and heat embossed, with black embossing powder, to give an overall lushness to this piece. The three black birds were facing the other way, so I cut them out..turned them over…and black embossed them. (It is just one little stamp). The fairy is stamped onto some scrap alcohol ink cardstock which I lighted a little in the middle, with blending solution, to give a highlight to the image.
I love that you can go back at any time and still keep working with these inks!
One of the hardest things about this making this card
was knowing when enough was enough…
And that’s about it
Just a little alcoholic ink, some dylusionals, toilet paper and hey presto!
Please pop over to FSC and check out the other incredible creations from the Stampettes.
