Botanical Paper Flower
So, I got out a simple flower stamp, (part of Dawn Bibby range) and stamped it several times. Next, I got out my trusty Tim Holtz distress inks, which I can't be without, and blended some colour that matched the papers I thought. I even added some Sakura pen and water brushed it out, a little mica and there were the flowers! I then set about cutting them all out and creasing them, spritzing a little too, layering them up and sticking with the best clue on the planet (well I think so at this time, til anyone changes my mind... what is your favourite?).
The glue is cosmic shimmer glue; it grips almost immediately, dries clear, and is strong. I just wish the pots were bigger, as mine seem to have a hole in the bottom... Or I use them up too quick haha... Anyway I made a few of these little guys today and added them to today's very simple card, but I think it at least looks very pretty! Again, all thanks to the teabag trip... Pic below...
