Flower art!

Today I am sharing a gift I made for a good friend who recently redecorated her lounge. She was struggling to find artwork to fit in with her colour scheme, so I decided to make her some :)

I used a piece of Retro Fresh DSP to back the aperture in the box frame, and then made roses using card stock and the spiral flower die from the spring mini.  I created a trendy ombré effect by graduating the colour from Pool Party to Coastal Cabana and then Bermuda Bay.  I spritzed the flowers with smooch spritz and added a rhinestone to the centre for extra glitz.  I used Tombow adhesive and the excellent and oft overlooked rubber craft mat for my glueing.

My friend loved her gift, and has ordered another one.  I hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by. Please do leave a comment, I love to read them.

Hugs, Allie x

Happy Mother's Day to One in a Million!

I have a quick one layer clean and simple card to share with you, using the Simple Stems stamp set and the gorgeous sentiment set, Million and One.  My colours are real red, costal cabana and pear pizzazz.  I didn't have a suitable leaf stamp, so I made a stencil with the wing if the bird punch and sponged through.  I finished off with a trio of rhinestones and flower centres stamped with a pencil eraser to tie in the black from the sentiment.

Hope you like it!
