Flower Box

This is the last project that I made on the craft retreat with Honey Doo crafts. A vellum flower using their products to create the centre piece. Flower stamp was stamped out several times in versamark ink embossed with white/white EP onto white vellum and then heat set. Each flower was fussy cut out and then coloured from the back using Memento Dew drops ink pads in two shades of pink. Each petal was sculptured and then applied to a flat disc of vellum to build up the flower shape. A few leaves were created the same way and tucked in behind the arrangement.


The inside surround for the box frame was stamped using Memento  Dew drop ink pads and we could choose which Honey Doo stamps we used to make our designs up with.  I chose a leaf scroll and a butterfly. We also stamped a square larger than the aperture to adhere the flower disc to and then put inside the frame.

A photo showing the finished frame which is 10"x 10" and looks really pretty IRL. I had to take the photo out in the garden to get all of it in. I will show what I made on the Heartfelt Creations retreat day later in the week.

These stamps are gorgeous and the flower is amazing. It must look wonderful irl.
In answer to your question about my checked snippet backgrounds, they are made with Inky Doodles stamps. You stamp each strip and criss cross them. Much easier on a small square but you can make many designs. Examples much better than mine here: http://www.inkydoodles.co.uk/ourshop/prod_2250698-A5-Primitive-Angel-stamp-set.html. Warning they are addictive but you did ask! x
