Hi, I wanted to enter the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More. I love the inspiration photo, and thought about using my window die.
Then I noticed the gorgeous detailed carving on the window box. It reminded me of this hero Arts Stone Flower stamp. I used the yellow of the flowers and added some of the greenery.
The background is a dp that my sister gave me a long time ago, she used to get freebies in scrapbooking magazines, and I was often the lucky recipient! Thanks Mo:)
I'm also going to enter the challenge at Addicted to CAS, where the code word is birthday.
At A Blog Named Hero, the theme is to Clean Up Your Act by creating a clean and simple project.
At Simon Says Stamp & Show, the theme this week is to create a project using your favourite ink. I used Versafine ink to stamp the stone flower image. It's my favourite ink for stamping detailed images and works so well. I coloured the flower with distress ink pads using fine nibs to get the colour into the small areas. (I don't have any distress markers!)
Materials used: Hero Arts Stone Flower stamp; Memory Box Madeira corner die; Sepia Versafine ink; Distress ink pads; Perfect Pearls spray painted over the top of some of the image; bling & sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for visiting :)
