Climbing Flowers


I've been playing with my new Neat & Tangled stamps.  I've used the colour scheme from Dynamic Duos:


And I'm also entering it into the Little Tangles Un-birthday Birthday Challenge which is running as part of the Neat & Tangled month-long birthday bash.


The challenge is to create a birthday card or project using a stamp set that is not usually associated with birthdays.  Which I did.  But then I also added a birthday stamp on the twill tape so I hope that doesn't make it ineligible ;)

I stamped the images in Versamark and white embossed them, and smudged some colour around them. There was already a kink in the twill tape so, being too lazy to iron it out, I tied some pink cord around it to make it look deliberate.  The pink cord had a mind of its own so I just let it do its thing.

  2. The kink fixed totally had be believing that you intended to make that amazing sproinky embellie!!! It caught my eye immediately and had me swooning over your creativity! Awesome idea! The inked border around the embossed images gives the flowers an almost ethereal look! Gorgeous job Shirley. My prediction here - another winner, winner....
