I’ve been looking forward to playing with the new Flower Text stamp from Hero Arts. For my first time to ink it up I’ve used the striking colour combination from the Play Date Cafe Challenge #69, elements from the gorgeous CASE Study Challenge #27 card by Eva Dobilas and am also submitting it into the Moxie Fab World paper piecing challenge.
Stamps (Hero Arts) Flower Text & Friends Definition.
I embossed the Flower Text in white on black card, green patterned paper and red patterned paper (the paper was originally pink and I applied barn door distress ink to it). I don’t know what it is but I love cutting out little bits of paper or fabric and putting them back together again so I really enjoyed paper piecing the flowers and leaves here. The butterflies were punched out of a piece of white card which had been stamped with the Friend Definition. To finish I just added some buttons to the flowers and gems to the butterflies. The card was framed using an EK punch.
Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m off to do a mountain of ironing and will get back to enjoying the weekend after that!
