It seems like forever since I’ve posted, but I know it’s not. I’ve been a little under the weather since last weekend’s trip . . . sore throat, sleeping a bit, blah blah blah. In between naps yesterday I got all my stamping gear stored away and the studio picked up and cleaned. Then I was ready to create.
I love the Garden Girls set from Crafty Secrets and was drawn to it yesterday when I was looking for an image to work with. The stone fence in the image I chose reminds me of the fences around Lexington, Kentucky, that are so unique and beautiful.
The image was colored with Copic Markers and then the edges were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I used Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven to offset the image and to layer it. I used some new designer paper for the background and to make the flower. Speaking of the flower, I used Spellbinders™ Flower Creations 3 and then make a small cut between each petal. Using the same technique in my Paper Flower Video, I worked just the edges of each petal to make them stand up for dimension.
