I just so happened to have some new rubber from Just for Fun stamps sitting on my desk waiting to be put away in a binder (A chore that I put off until I cannot stand the mess on my desk any longer!). PERFECT for this challenge! Here is my creation:
These images have been presented at stamp shows but will now be on the web site for all you to enjoy too!! I stamped the the three flower images (D3358 is the largest flower, A3350 is the small orange one and B3356 is the on the bottom edge) using Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Gina K's 120# pure luxury paper in white. I then pulled out my much neglected copic ciao's and colored the flowers. Cut out all the flowers and adhered them to a 8 1/2" x 3 3/4" very vanilla base. I then stamped the butterfly (another new web addition, A3378) using the rich cocoa ink again on the luxury white and colored in using the same color copics as the orange flowers. Cut that out very carefully and attached by it's little body only, gently bending the wings to add dimension. Stamped the sentiment (also from Just for Fun) AND MANAGED TO SMEAR A BIT OF INK grrrrrr!!!! Sorry. I am NOT going to tear this apart and start over at this point! LOL!! Grabbed a small wheel used to emboss metal/clay and made my line of dots that were (kinda) faux stitched using my old olive marker.
Thanks for dropping by again today!! I've already started another new venture in creativity that I will have to share later on this week! I'm sooooo excited as this is something that I've been "stalking" for a while and decided to take the first steps while at the SuperCraft show!!
I'm off to get ready for my evening of watching my kiddos play city league basketball (back to back games....Saturday night entertainment at my house!!). I hope you all have a great weekend!
