Before I move on to today's post, I'd like to welcome my newest follower.......Dianne Vynne. Thank you for joining me Dianne :)
It's time for another new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. The theme this month is 'Beautiful Blooms.' I have so many flower stamps that I was spoiled for choice on this one, so I thought that I'd try something a little different, so here goes......
I started by stamping five of the Gibson Girl in a rough flower shape. I did this twice before cutting them out and using a bone folder to shape and dimension. I then mounted them onto each other and used a rose that I made using Spellbinder Rose Creations for the center.
I created the background using stamps and stencils, and I also used some sequin waste to create the little dots that you can see. Once I was happy with the colours, I used a flourish stamp by Inkylicious to decorate around the edge. I then heat embossed it in gold to make it look a little more opulent.
This Gibson Girl is one of my favourite stamps by Flonz Craft and I've enjoyed making her into a Beautiful Bloom!
Inks used were:
Distress: Cracked Pistachio, twisted Citron
We would love you to join us in this challenge so get out your stamps and inks and let's see what you create. Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so please don't use digital images, just good old fashioned stamping.
We are so lucky to be sponsored by Leo over at Flonz Craft and one lucky random winner will receive a $20 voucher to be used online. There will also be a Top 3 spotlight, chosen by the Design Team,
