A rather large flower and a Blog Hop!!
If you saw yesterdays post you know I have been playing round with the flower making technique recommended by Heather, well this was my first attempt. The glisten is achieved by spraying with perfect pearls in water.
The flower is rather large and I wasn't sure what to do with it, in the end I made a stem by twisting some ribbon onto double sided tape. The leaf and green side to the background is an off cut from my scrap basket.
I am never going to be able to post this card as its far to fat and would definitely get damaged so it will give me an excuse to hand deliver!!
Supplies: Hero Arts stamp CG187 Floral Brocade, CG139 Cling Dots. Cuttlebug embossing folder, Wood Grain
I have also been playing with my new small clear set of stamps from Hero Arts called designer fruit.
The apple is paper pieced with some of my favourite Bo Bunny paper, the green card has been run through the wood grain embossing folder. Another card for the Hero Arts September challenge of "Everything Autumnal" . With all the lovely apples and blackberries around at the moment I am going to make a crumble for Sunday lunch, Yummy my favourite!!
We are having our first ever blog Hop at the Hero Arts Flickr group to show off our own style check out the link here and enjoy the Hop there are so many talented ladies in the group with lots of different styles. Its a contant source of inspiration for me and I have to try and visit every day!! When I first started making cards everyone was so kind and encouraging it certainly inspired me to try different techniques and styles.
Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps, CL320 Designer Fruit, CG119 Flourish Background. Papers by BoBunny and Basic Grey. Woodgrain embossing folder.
