Floral Delight (by Julie)


Hello, hope it's not too wet where you are, but hopefully these brand new Chocolate Baroque flower stamps can bring in some cheery sunshine to chase the rain away.......

From the set of six stamps I have chosen to use the Daisy Ring Centre and Swirl Centre. My favourite has to be the Daisy Ring as you are getting two flowers in one. You can leave the double layer of petals as it is or as I have done for this door hangar, cut away the outer petals and be left with a smaller flower. 
I covered the wooden hangar with Marigold Distress Stain and a few dabs of Picket Fence Distress Paint, before stamping the Swirl Centre flower directly onto the hangar. I used Picket Fence and Evergreen Bough Distress Paint.
The flowers have been painted with water colour and glazed with a clear, glitter spray varnish and to add interest I applied some seed beads with glossy accents to the centres of the two smaller flowers.

My second project is a simple birthday card using the Daisy Centre Flower Head, a floral stamp from Seasonal Fragments and the sentiment from Mackintosh Sentiments
I inked up the Seasonal Fragment with red Versafine and stamped over the base card which I masked with torn paper strips. (Much like Lesley's demo on the Craft Channel with the Seasonal Edges) Then I applied Mermaid Lagoon over the top and took a baby wipe to sponge over red Versafine to the masked areas. I then applied Antique Linen all over the base card before stamping the sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine. I stamped the flower with red Versafine and coloured with watercolour before cutting out and finishing off with a white highlighter pen and Crystal Stickles.

Many thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon.

  6. Two lovely creations Julie. The flowers are so glossy on the door hanger and then the echo stamping of the flower in the background is so pretty in that blue, and the masking and fragment stamping in the background of the card again with that bright blue, and the daisy flower over the top finishes it beautifully. x
