I have been having a day working with some stash I got from Craftwork Cards - the gorgeous big bazzill flowers and Enchanted Paper Collection.
The three background panels were stamped with Hero Arts Friends stamp and the edges inked with black...tied a ribbon round one panel. Cut out a circle with Cricut and faux stitched the edge.
Stamped the Bazzill flower with the same Hero Arts stamp - this was a technique inspired by the latest Prima flowers called Artful Collage which I have ordered from the US and hopefully will arrive any day now. I spotted them on Tim Holtz blog with a link to an online store...apparently they are like gold dust in the US probably because he is using them on his Alaskan Crafting Cruise....lucky folk spending a week on a boat with the legend himself. Toodle along and check out his blog - it's fabulous and full of fun.....he really is such a nice guy. I e-mailed him to thank him for the info on the Prima flowers and he came right back with a lovely reply....made my day!!
This time I dotted polka dots all over the flower with a permanent marker and stamped some flourishes from a HOTP stamp set.
The paper is from the Enchanted Pink Collection adding an "in circle", "stem saying" and punched out circles from the paper.
This time I left the flower plain adding stitching from a Bazzill Stitch template with black thread which I purchased at the SECC back in March and had never got round to using. Added black punched out circles, inked the edges with a pink inkpad and added a bit of doodling, "in circle" and "stem saying".
I really have got into this inking edges and doodling habit bad..just can't control myself...need to do it on everything.
