Heart2Heart: May Flowers
CAS-ual Fridays: Stamp on Patterned Paper
I'm not sure if you can read the sentiment (CTMH Scrapbook Sentiments-Women). It says, "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. ~Eleanor Roosevelt" Is that too perfect, or what?
To create my flower (CTMH-Something Splendid), I took a mostly solid image stamp, embossed it in clear on patterned paper (CTMH-Lucy), then sponged over it in a darker color (CTMH-Cotton Candy with a little Tulip along the outside edge). The flower center is created with puff ball ribbon (see this post for tutorial) surrounded by pearl accents. UPDATE: I finally found the actual tutorial post, so let me give credit where it's due...the amazing Stamp Talk with Tosh.
So fun to create something beautiful just because.
Until next time,
