The great thing about being a GD with Scribbles Designs is being able to pick any of the wonderful images to work with. This time I have chosen one of the many floral ones to make up a spring bouquet. It could be for a birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Get Well, Sympathy, Thank You, Thinking of You . . . any occassion really. I have gone with Thinking of You.
Scribbles Designs – Flower Set 1
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
X-Press It! card
silver tissue paper
white spotty tissue paper
Because all the flowers, leaves and the sentiments are in one combined image I used the crop featuree in Word to issolate the elements I needed for my bouquet. Having arranged them on my page I printed them on X-Press It card and coloured them with Copics.
I fussy cut all the elements and then made up the individual flowers with the flower head, stalk and leaves, shaping the flower heads as I went. I then made my flowers into a bunch and wrapped them in a triangle of spotty tissue paper and tied them with the silver ribbon. I added a few extra leaves where I could see a gap so that there was not too much white background showing through.
A closer view to show the flower stems and filler leaves.
I cut a doily from the silver tissue and attached it to the front of an A5 card blank then positioned and attached the bouquet on the top.
Finally I stamped the greeting on the front in black ink.
