LOC Blossoming

Don't you just love the weekend - there is always so much happening, but no matter what I always manage to sneak in a little craft time - it is my sanity break - and I am telling you I need it with three teenagers in the house!

I have created my own DP with the Layers of Colour Art Stencils - I think this one is one - Belle Brocade -  of my favourites, but I am sure too, I will say that about the next one I use - how can I help it, they are all divine!

 The image is from the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet clear art stamps, this set is so gorgeous and the urn is from Her Majesty's Urn's - they work so well together!  I stamped two of the flower image and have lightly chalked the flowers on one, infact I used rubbed my Blender Pen over them and that was enough, they then been cut out and popped up on foam dots - and a little bit of shimmer added.

You can see the dimension here - I love the way it just lifts a card and adds so much, paper piercing is another great touch that can bring a card to life!  I have used both the Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestibilities to create a frame around the image.

My bow is made using the wonderful Bow Easy and the gorgeous satin ribbon is from my dear friend and enabler, Sabrina (okimom2girlz) - hasn't she got great taste!  I added Cappuccino Half Pearls to the bow and finished off with a large bling brad with a pearl added just for something different!
