Punky Punky Flowers (by Clare)

Here's a bright and cheery card to welcome you all here!

The set of stamps I used from Chocolate Baroque is called Punky Flowers.  Just click on the name to go to that webpage on the CB site.  This set of "Steampunk" stamps goes well with all the other sets!  One can't have too many flowers, of any type!  I used the colors in the striped background paper for the flowers, and overlayed a piece of very thin yellow floral mulberry paper.  (you can almost see it!)  I stitched thread through the two little black buttons, and glued them on.  There is 1/8" wide teal ribbon tied around the bottom and has four loops in the bow.  I took craft wire in four colors, and used my round pliers to curl each end of the 6" long piece, then folded them in half, and adhered the fold under the sentiment panel.

  3. Your use of the striped paper is quite astonishing & I love the way the fibres & the wires echo the images - especially your ribbon the two stitches holding the petals together on the flower that bears the buttons.
    Very very different.
