Here is the second card that I made for day 2 of the hop, I used a Hero Arts Background Luscious Ledger Stamp and Walnut Distress Stain. If you haven't tried the stains I would highly recommend them for stamping, all you do is rub them right over your image and stamp. It is so easy.
All of my flowers are made by hand. The rosettes are circles that you tear by hand. Tear into a spiral, take the outside edge with a pair of tweezers, start wrapping the paper around the end of the tweezers, once you get it started remove from the tweezers and finish rolling, allow it to release a bit and then glue to the base bottom. The other flower is punched twice from the blue scallop Marvy punch, take your scissors and cut toward the center of the circle, I added a little Rock Candy Distress Paint to the two pieces and tipped them up a bit and allowed them to dry. Once they were dried I added a gemstone to the center; also some pretty ribbon, a metal embellishment, some twine and so fun leaves.
I have had a thing for butterflies lately and just had to add this one to my card.
Can you see the flowers that are also on the Hero Arts Luscious Ledger Background stamp, all I can say is it is definitely luscious. I hop you have enjoyed the Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop and continue along the way to Scraps To Treasures Blog with Monica. I am sure you have found lots of wonderful projects from the talented designers that have participated. I would love for you to become a follower of my blog and I love the sweet comments that everyone leaves.

You did a great job on those flowers! We(our club) did these flowers once and it's amazing what can be done with a little "twisting and turning"! However I have to admit, my favorite is the butterfly, I think it just makes your card extra special. By the way, I need to try the distress stain it looks great!ReplyDelete
