Flowers from the Heart

Hi folks, what a lovely week off I have had.  Been out with our fur baby Enya for some lovely walks. Yesterday I had a lovely play in my craft room using some new stamps I had received from Honey Doo Crafts.

The flowers I have used are called 'Flowers from the Heart' which I have stamped onto vellum using Graceful Peach embossing powder from Phill Martin.  I then cut them out by hand which I do find therapeutic however I have now ordered the matching dies fro Honey Doo - much easier.

My background was one I made some months ago using a new stencil I bought when I was at Ally Pally in April.  The paste I used, I think, is a clear one which I mixed with the Graceful Peach mica powder.

The dies to make the frame is the noble rectangle ones from Sue Wilson.  The embossed card was Finials embossing folder again from Sue Wilson and it was actually a left over when I have die cut an image using one of the noble oval dies.

Finally I added a sentiment which is a stamp from Tonic.

Well I am off to do some more knitting now - that is my evening occupation.

Thanks for visiting.  Hope to see you soon.
