I really enjoy playing along with various challenges, but challenge #235 at
Stampotique - "Include Flowers in your Project"
had me thinking outside the square, so to speak. The reason? I don't own any Stampotique flowers. I know that any stamps can be used in this challenge but I prefer to use Stampotique rather than other companies.
Looking through my stamps, I spied "My Heart" and decided it would make beautiful flowers.
There are three layers of petals on each flower which are fussy cut and glued together. The petals are coloured with various Prismacolor pencils blended together. The flower centres are a splodge of Liquid Pearls.
I generally make cards or ATCs when I'm playing with my stamps, however, as these flowers are quite large I thought they would be much better suited in my journal. Flipping through the pages I came across this background which had been a mop-up page, but the green reminded me of flower stems and so as they say, the rest is history!
The words 'flower meadow' are old rub-on letters and by dating the page, I can look back to when it was created, or in this case ...... finished!
I'm also going to enter this page in this month's Craft Stamper challenge.
