Blooming With Inspiration

Have you visited the Penny Black blog yet this week?  If not I promise it is worth a visit to see all the amazing inspiration from the design team.

Today Peet Roeven and I are hosting the blog, I am so honoured to be sharing the post with such a talented artist.  I am sharing this floral design......

Spring Blues

Supplies used in this project:
Penny Black Softly 40-319 stamp and Special Wishes 30-229 Transparent Stamp set, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Versafine Onyx Back ink Summer Sky IrRESISTible spray (I used a syringe but a pico embellisher would work better), Pear Tart Pico Embellisher and Wedding Dress IrRESISTible spray. Chameleon alcohol art pens Blue Violet and Olive, Blue silk ribbon, Deco Art, Glitter, Katy Sue Designs Elegant Hearts mould (a special thanks to Margot and Steve at Tulip Crafts in Ringwood for finding these for me), Ice Resin, blue thread, white green and blue card and Beacon Fabritac Adhesive.

Step 1: Stamp flower with memento ink onto white card, colour and add glitter to petals. Stamp sentiment with Versafine Ink and  add dots using Pear Tart Pico Embellisher, when dry mount onto card and stitch around edge.

Step 2: Gently place Pico Embellisher needle into the mould detail depressions and colour dots, leaves and flowers; then leave to dry (see below for detail of the heart).  Once dry mix and pour Ice resin into the mould and leave to cure, when cured add white IrResistible to back again leave to dry before popping out of mould.

Step 3: Tie a double bow with the silk ribbon and attach to the card using Beacon Fabritac Adhesive.
