For the 'floral' part of my card, I used crinoline and net fabric in a Sizzix floral die (a la Linda Couglin - The Funkie Junkie's technique), and then tinted the flower petals in a very light shade of SU (reinkers) pink. After allowing them to dry, assembly was rather quick and I added the center of the flower using light green stickles over a brad... which seemed to take forever to dry... well, admittedly, I was pretty heavy-handed with the stickles.
The scroll is also a die cut that I painted in white and added some glitter for even more interest. My designer paper was embellished using pink ink and a scroll stamp and small dots of Pink Pearls along the side on a base of Kraft paper. All of this was the foundation for that fabulous calligraphy postcard and paper doily. I love the calligraphy and sure wish I could master penmanship like that. Try as I do, I'll never even get close.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I do hope that you will join us at Sugar Creek Hollow and show us how you incorporate flowers into your primitive, shabby chic or vintage creation. One very lucky person will be randomly selected for a digi of our choice and a favorite will be selected by the design team. That person will then be in the running for the card of the month and the guest designer.
