Today I’m playing along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge. Here’s the challenge board…
I chose the first column down: feminine, birthday, florals
Recently I’ve been having such a good time reaching into my less used stamps and dies. And I’ve been finding so many sets that make me wonder why I haven’t used them more often. Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Flowers is one of those sets. I love this pretty, large floral spray.
The background is stenciled using a stencil from Pink Fresh Studio with Peeled Paint distress oxide ink. I stamped the large floral image with Memento black ink and colored it with Copic markers. After coloring, I added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for a little sparkle. Then it was cut using the coordinating dies and adhered to the stenciled background with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!’s Celebrate Sunflowers. It’s heat embossed with white embossing powder and fussy cut. This is also adhered with dimensionals. Lastly, I added a few sequins for more sparkle.
I lightly stenciled the inside panel and stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Happy Thoughts (retired) stamp set.
As always, thanks very much for stopping by today.
