My DT piece for Creative Expressions this week is a bit floral!
Zentangle flower by Sam Poole, but chopped it up and layered it to give a more 3D feel. The background is a very simple Distress Stain 'smoosh' type affair! I swiped my craft mat with Shabby Shutters and Broken China Distress stain, sprayed a little water on them, then dipped and dabbed my cardstock into the inky mess. Once it was dry, I added just a little Seedless Preserves to the card too, not too much as I wanted a fairly light colour scheme.
Sams mini alpha clear stamps (yes I own two sets of these so I can use two of the same letters at once one the same block rather than stamping one letter at a time!- I'm very lazy!) The word needs to be stamped before you add the flowers and leaves....tricky to position your acrylic block around embellishments, and can you imagine the hassle of trying to unstick all those bits if you make a dogs breakfast of the stamping?!
I stamped the flower three times onto cardstock that had been given the same Distress ink treatment as the base card. Cut out, then shaped and layered on top of one another...
Hope you like it!
Don't forget to check out the Creative Expressions news page, not to mention all my other Teamies blogs next week....there may well be an exciting plan afoot!!!!
