This week I did some more flower making using the Botanical Garden Collections stamps with the coordinating Spellbinders and Donna Salazar dies. The papers are DCWV the "Mariposa" pack...I have been hoarding them for a while. They are beautiful!
The flowers were stamped and die cut. the middles were created by stacking 4 sun punches and scrunching them up.
I used some watercolor paints to color the butterfly, then added Rock candy Stickles on them as always.
I stared out wanting to create Geraniums because the leaves reminded me of Geraniums, but as always my flower making took a different coarse. LOL... You will find the instructions for creating this layout below. Have a Happy Wednesday!!
