Floral Pen Holder (by Gerrina)

Hello everyone, today sees the second post from our Guest Designer Gerrina, this month. She has created a pretty holder for her pens, decorated with floral images.

It is already the second of my Guest Design Team posts at Chocolate Baroque this month. This time I have made something that can make your craft room an inspirational place and is still so useful. I have altered another glass jar that I use for markers:

Used Materials:

Stamps: Floral Notes
Ink: Memento - Sky Blue, Cantaloupe, Love Bug, Teal Zeal, Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves, Lilac Posies, Tuxedo Black
Other: Glass jar, white linen cardstock, crayons

Work Process:

Cut a piece of linen cardstock that fits the jar that you want to use.
Choose some beautiful flower stamps from Chocolate Baroque, two background stamps and one or two grass stamps.
Stamp the two background stamps with a light blue and a light yellow ink. They might overlap.
Stamp the flowers without masking, and 'ground' them by stamping the grass stamps at the bottom of the cardstock.
I inked the stamps directly with the inkpads.
Colour the flowers with the same ink colours and a water brush. If you wish, you can draw some extra grass.

Creatieve groetjes,


Thank you Gerrina for another fabulous project.

Gerrina will be back next week with her final project of the month.
