I’ll freely admit that I’ve had a major crafting slump & have struggled to create anything over the last few months. I mentioned this to Zoe & she decided to set me a challenge to get my mojo working again. This is what she set me….
Now I’ll freely admit I sat with my mouth open at this – I mean I love flowers in real life, but they never tend to be the first thing I go to to colour. Fussy cutting …. layering ….. argh!!!!
OK big breaths ….. big girl pants on and off I go.
Actually I’ll admit it took me nearly two weeks to get crafting, but I’m pleased with what I produced in the end. Here it is.
Here’s a close up of the main rose & leaves from the main rose and leaves from the Floral Elements Three Digi Stamps Set. The set contains two rose heads, three smaller flower/ buds and some leaves. They’re in .PNG format so are really easy to layer and build into an arrangement.
I layered the elements together & printed them all as one and then with some of the leaves & the flowers separately. Once I’d coloured them I used my Silver Bullet Cutting machine to print & cut them (yes I cheated – I didn’t fussy cut by hand). I layered the different elements using 1mm, 2mm and 3mm foam pads.
As a finishing touch I added clear Wink of Stella to some of the petals.
I coloured the 2 inch Hello Brush Script Word Chipboard with my Copics and then added a layer of Stickles Stardust.
I finished it off with a layer of Glossy Accents on the chippie & Stickles & Glossy Accents on the bubble elements.
I hope you like my creation. It’s taken a while but I think my mojo is finally beginning to return. I’m happy as I’ve really missed crafting!
