Framed Wishes in white on Kraft Cardstock. I trimmed it out and lightly sponged the edges with Vintage Photo. Next I cut a deckled rectangle from Ocean Mist and stamped one of the flourish elements in the Fabulous You set around the edges in Cool Caribbean, then skewed it behind with a little peach parfait twill in between. The sentiment is also from the Fabulous You set and is stamped in peach parfait along with the same flourish element, which I cut out and layered so it could extend past the edge of the circle. I added some pinking circles to spice things up, accenting the tip of each point on the peach layer with a white gel pen.
And then there's that flower! I've recently fallen in love with making my own flowers, using the easy technique in this handy dandy flower tutorial. So, the other night while I was working away on a tax report, a light bulb went on, and I wondered what would happen if I tried this technique with the gazillions of old primas I never use anymore because they don't look very realistic. Definitely worth a try, so I just layered them all together, then sprayed with water and crinkled the petals all up into a ball. Then it was just a matter of letting it dry and pulling them apart! I LOVE how it turned out! And I'm so excited to put some of those bottles of primas to good use again! Hooray!
That's all from me today. Time to check out the other stops along today's hop...
