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
