WMSC51... felt flowers

Saturday, June 11, 2011

It's time for another sketch (WMSC51) at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, this week's sketch is by the talented Belinda Chang Langner. Isn't it great! I added a few extra bits to mine... I'm not one for keeping things simple! : )

The color inspiration came from this week's Tuesday Trigger Cosmopolitan Neapolitan at Moxie Fab World. I just love these colors together.

The sweet felt flowers I made using Sizzix Bigz Die - Flowers 3D. I did add little dots of fabric glue as I rolled the flower to keep it securely together. I love the soft texture of them.

I recycled some cardboard for the die cut label (Spellbinders Labels 18), stamped with Very Vintage Labels No.18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps in VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder. (This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is embossing)

The little tag is stamped using Bitty Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the sentiment stamped in Coffee Archival Ink is from Roses in Bloom.

The background paper I made by stamping some plain white card stock with the polka dot stamp from Gingham & Co in a light pink, rubbed with some Distress Ink in Antique Linen and then over stamped with text from Text-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I also added some lace, seam binding, feathers and a pearl trinket pin that I made. Ok, have a great weekend. It's Isabelle's 4th birthday today, PARTY is this afternoon! Still loads to do!
