Well, flowers is a challenge most of us crafters welcome this week at Stamp Something!
I haven't used my Magnolias for over a year, mainly because I've alwas struggled with them and never achieved good results. Then my good friend Tara sent me some irresistable new Tildas from wedding collection and well, I had to have a go. You be a judge! (and yes, there's more to follow in coming weeks!)
The flowers I used underneath the image are huge velvety blooms I cut apart and then stuck together with glue gun to form sort of a flower "fans".
I used A LOT of Sakura Stardust pens on that image, just went a bit mad... (blush).
Stitching is ALL FAKE, I've become quite cunning lately, lol. Just as long as you prick the holes with paper piercer first it doesn't look bad at all, I think.
