Makeesha is back from a break away from blogging & all revived to inkspire us all once again-yay! Here is her sketch, with a chance to win a tin of the new Felt Fusion flowers from Stampin Up! so very generous of her isn't it???
It's a good one isn't it? Here's what I created...
I started with an always artichoke base & embossed with swiss dots. I stamped a piece of river rock c/s with my Paisley BG stamp in river rock ink. Punched a piece of white c/s with my new Fiskars border punch-Florentine, top & bottom & wrapped with a length of ribbon. I stamped the little bird from Celebrate Everyday once on white & again on some of the leftover paisley/river rock piece. I cut out the river rock bird & mounted her up with foam dimensionals, also coloured her heart & flower band with purely pomegranate. Sponged the edges with river rock & mounted on river rock then purely pomegranate c/s. I punched out a 1" circle of pomegranate & a 3/4" circle from the paisley/river rock piece, attached an American Crafts flower & a button from the stash. I originally stamped 'just because' straight onto my paisley piece (once it was all stuck down & I knew as i was doing it I would regret it...) didn't like it-too flat, so I punch out a round tab out of the paisley/river rock piece & stamped 'thank you' onto it. It slid in nicely under the panel & I left the tab open for a bit more dimension, you can kinda see a shadow in the photo. I like...You like???
