Wallpaper Flowers


Another one of my all-time favorite Hero Arts(HA) flower stamps is K5185 Wallpaper Flowers.  I first embossed it in black on a piece of white cardstock.  Then I smooshed an orchid and an olive ink pad on an acrylic block and colored the image by lifting ink from the block with a blender pen.  After trimming the image I matted it on a piece of orchid cs and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  Clear gems were added to each of the flower centers.  The sentiment is from HA CL129 Anytime Messages.  I plan to give this to my MIL for Mother's Day as I know she likes this color combination.
Other Materials Used:  Stampin' Up cs, pp and ink, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Michael's rhinestones, Nesties

This is the first day in several weeks that we woke to blue skies and no rain!!  Even the birds sound happier :)

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

I know what you mean by all the rain, Robin! We had days of it too, then the last two were beautiful. Enjoy them, because more rain is coming your way again. . .really gloomy here today. Love your gorgeous card with that beautiful color combo! So glad you're back blogging more often again! Hugs!
