flora

is the theme for mittwoch stempler aka wednesday stamper {grin}…& this is my entry for this week…i just adore flowers & plants>>>gardening is one of my biggest passions…& i love to grow my own flowers, veggies & herbs from seed. it gives me immense satisfaction & joy to watch a tiny seed grow into something so amazingly beautiful>>> & the process is sow easy!

anyhoo, how’d i do this? well, i ink distressed a piece of white envie using inks by tim holtz. then i overlaid the inked surface with “crackle” stamp by stampin’ up! then i used the ‘honeycomb’ clear acrylic stamp from the fresh flower elements set by christine adolph>>>this became the background. over this background, i used contrasting colors (tim holtz inks) to stamp more of the fresh flower elements (christine aldoph’s). the face/wing image is from stamp-in-a-hand…the original stamp had the face embedded in a clock, but i snipped that off & re-attached the mis-matched wings to the face…the text at the bottom of the collage is from paper artsy. the green/white polka dot mat is scrap paper by making memories…check out more flora pieces here…& enjoy!
