I wanted to add an entry to the March Joy of Sets challenge which is a card sketch this month and I'd been looking for an opportunity to use some speciality paper I'd bought in a sale from Create and Craft. This paper is supposed to be perfect for flower forming as when it is spritzed it takes on the appearance of hand made paper, giving a vintage look to projects.
So I gave it a shot with this using a real mish mash of products. My base was Very Vanilla from Stampin' Up! with a mat of retired Soft Sky and then I used a Stampin' Up! ribbon to achieve a divide between two pieces of Papercraft DSP. I punched out some flowers from the same paper using a tiny flower punch from Stampin' Up! and made other flowers using the paper, a spritzer and retired pansy and petite petals punches. I spritzed the larger flowers with retired Peekaboo Peach ink and the small ones with Strawberry Slush.
I added pearls and rhinestones and a tiny sentiment stamped in Crumb Cake which I found in Friends and Family stamp set from Stampin' Up!
It elaborated on the brief which was two sections with a strip of flowers and a tiny sentiment but it just looked bland without and I wanted an excuse to test out the paper which did work really well.
Check out my video for full details.
Thanks for dropping in, have a great week.
