Sketched Flowers

My old friend and longtime reader of this blog, Theresa, sent me a totally unexpected gift of some stamps (all the way from America). The card she sent said 'see what you can do with these!'

Well here is the first lot, made with the Simon Says Stamps Sketched Flowers set. This first one was heat embossed in white, then I just used distress inks over the top.....

This next one was done on watercolour paper, I heat embossed in white again, but this time used watercolour paints (the heat embossing kept the colour wash nicely within the lines.....)

and for the last one, I stamped onto white card, then did a lot of fussy cutting around the flower spray. The partially cut white panel was attached to a sand coloured base card with foam pads -  I also used Wink of Stella clear glitter on the flowers, but of course this never shows up in photos

So thank you so much Theresa, I hope you approve of what I have done so far....lots more to come. Which one do you all like best? I think the last one is my favourite.

I haven't blogged for a while - I scalded my fingers quite badly and it's difficult crafting when you have dressings that make your fingers the size of hot dogs! However, they have healed now, and I have two fingers with skin as smooth as  a baby's bottom 😄 but I do have a lot to share with you, so look out for more posts (hint: Christmas is coming.....)
