Mygrafico Monday Feature ~ Shabby Flowers

Hi there!  Back again with a Mygrafico Feature.  The challenge last week was "Summer" and this week we are featuring Mel's Brushes Shabby Flower Stamps  which has 9 different stamps

  A great set to use.

Heartfelt wishes

I started by importing three of the flowers into my word document together with two words from a Hero Arts digital kit ( Say it in Pieces) and printed it out.  I then printed it out onto a scrap piece of computer paper and using some washi tape covered the flowers with PP and reprinted it so that the PP got printed.  I then trimmed them out and paper pieced the flowers.   The two outer flowers were stuck directly to the card and the middle one was popped up on dimensionals.   I finished with some K & Company epoxy stickers for the centres.   Some distress around the edge and layered onto the PP background on the card base.

Visit the blog here to see what everyone else came up with. 

Now I didn't get last weeks card up on my blog so here's it is!

Hang in there.

see this post for the digi set we got to use.   Had fun with this card.  Very self explanatory.  Coloured my image with water coloured pencils and an aqua pen.

Hope you take time to visit Mygrafico and join our challenge

Your paper piecing brought these flowers to life Dawn. Great idea of accenting the centers with the expoxy stickers.

Cute monkey card with a fabulous woodgrain background!

Beautiful creations Dawn. Off to browse all the posts I have missed over the past number of weeks. Just back from vacation, boys settling back into school and I am trying to catch up on everything else!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my posts - I really appreciate them. Can't wait to see what you create with your new La-La Land Crafts stamp. Hugs, D

Hello Dawn
I love the flower card, You have kept it within your genre; the added dimension to your flowers lifts it wonderfully.
