Hello everyone and happy Friday!
How surprised and delighted was I when I was asked by Neat & Tangled to guest design for them for the month of July?!?! Well… very! I love the fun and fresh style of their images and sentiments …. and their florals are just swoon worthy. If you know me you know I can’t resist a good floral.
So to start I had to use one of my favourite ever ‘Neat & Tangled’ stamp set, ‘Scandinavian Prints’, with a few added extras.
To start I drew a circle using a pencil into place where I wanted my wreath to be. I did the pencil very faint so it was easy to rub out once all of my stamping was complete. I stamped a number of large flower shapes from the ‘Scandinavian Prints‘ and layered these up using smaller images from the set. It really is so much fun playing around layering the images up as there are so many different ‘flowers’ you can come up with.
I also used some elements from ‘Send Pretty Mail‘ to add in smaller more ‘open’ images to give more variety and interest to the floral wreath.
I used a less classic colour combination but I think the blue and kraft leaves with touches of navy goes really well with these funky, modern floral blooms.
For the sentiment I used ‘so’ taken from Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card and Awesome die. To make the ‘awesome’ stand out more from the background I cut the shadow for the word out of vellum and added this behind. I cut the ‘awesome’ from navy card and added a Wink Of Stella over it and some Glossy Accents.
Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit and feel inspired.
Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
