i really surprised myself with this LO AND I killed two birds with one stone so to speak. the LO is based on a recent SCS sketch challenge - SBSC130:
and it also fulfills a contest challenge on the stampingscrapbookers group i am in. this LO was an interesting process since i was not going to do either the sketch or the contest when i first saw them. but then i looked at them again and for some reason i just got inspired - go figure!
the challenge was to use flowers in a LO but you had to stamp them - any kind of flowers. i used die cut flowers from the Walk In My Garden cricut cartridge for the leaves and critters and George cart for the flowers. i stamped them with a new stamp - tooled leather from artistic outpost - in versamark and then embossed most of them with rainbow embossing powder by Ranger.
I may never be able to do plain die cuts again! this LO was somewhat uncharacteristic of me but i like it. can't wait to see what else i can do with this stamp too - really love the design. hhhmmmm maybe some magic pattern technique next......here are a couple close ups of the flowers.
The cute little critters are cut from some alcohol inked scraps i had leftover from a slew of cards i am working on to give my mom for a show she will have a booth at in a couple weeks. the pics are from our trip last week to see her.
