Serene Flowers

Good Morning Stampers ~ I love a quiet area with Serene Flowers!

I don't know where yesterday went.  I went for a walk in the morning and then spent some time in my craft room.  I was able to get my one card finished and another one designed and completed.  I also cut all the paper for Zoie's Valentine's and helped her put them together so all we have to do is add the treat.  Then last night I cut all the paper for my workshop this week.  A very productive day in my book!

We have a new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  This one is an inspiration challenge.  Here is the photo I put together for our challenge.      

I was immediately drawn to the blurred background and the daffodils in 2 of the photos.  I went with that idea.  I pulled out the Serene Scenery dsp and found a great blurred background.   When I got the Basket Bunch bundle I knew I wanted to play with the daffodils in it.  I stamped the images on watercolor paper and used the Watercolor pencils to color them in.  I stamped the stems and leaves and used the matching framelits to cut out all the shapes.  I used Tombow glue to glue all the pieces together.  Once the pieces were dry, I attached them to my dsp.  It needed something else, so I used some of the silver metallic ribbon from Sale-abration.  This layer was added to an Old Olive card base.  To finish it off I added a sentiment from Circle of Spring with a layer of Silver Glimmer paper behind it.  Here is my completed creation.

I hope you will check out the other creations over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  There are some great interpretations of the inspiration photo.  I am sure you will find something that will appeal to you. 

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have an appointment and some ladies are coming for my workshop.  I will do some playing in between!  Have a Terrific Tuesday and what is your idea of Serene Flowers?
