Hoping you all had a Great weekend and are ready for the new week!
Today at Friends of Speedy TV we are challenging you to make and use handmade flowers.
As much as I love making flowers I made several different projects before settling
on this one. A LO using a pic of my sweet blue eyed blondie granddaughter
from a couple years ago.I took the pic just as she was turning so
it was a sweet partial profile I have has sitting waiting to use
in the right project. I cut and matted and stitched the pic onto several layers first.
The lavender background was chosen as the black shows nicely on it.
The orchid and purple flowers were cut with the Spellbinder Rose die and then I molded them.
The dark purple small roses are from the Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms and the
white poms are just plain handmade. The regular leaves I cut and molded
and the fern ones are cut with a Marvy punch.
Next I using modeling past and a Crafters Workshop Mini Flutterby stencil
my friend Martha gave me I randomly
scattered the butterflies around. If you look closely you will see I also cut a butterfly
from vellum and added it. I just wanted it to be subtly
nested in with the raised ones.
A Spellbinder border was used for the side and stitched on. I also added lavender jewels
to the flowers centers for a bit of sparkle
The Sentiment if from the Huge Flowers Set and matted onto a Spellbinder Fancy Label.
The it was foam dotted on.
All Stamp Sets and large selection of Papercrafting supplies are available at
the MFP STAMP STORE.
There are myriads of different ways to make HANDMADE flowers so join the fun and
show us what kinds you like to make best for
