Less is More - week 22 - Blue
This really is the last one for this week as I must go and get packing sorted out for trip to France. Then I must make sure all my plants are happy in the garden! And the little chrysanthemum cuttings are OK in the greenhouse.
So for this one I thought I'd have a go at STAMPING! If you've read any of my earlier posts you probably know by now I don't do much (if any stamping) Basically I'm no good at it. It goes splodgy or ends up not being straight or something generally goes wrong so I just don't do it.
But I found this trellis stamp and had a vision of plants and stems twisting their way round and through it!!! Wrong!! When I'd stamped it (reasonably well I thought) I just couldn't get it to work with the flowers. So I made it into a window by drawing a frame round it then adding a peel-off. So now it looked like a church window and I thought - sympathy card. I coloured a few tiny flowers with Promarkers in different shades of blue, added pearl centres (coloured to make them match) and a Creallie leaf die.
