Beautiful Blooms

Welcome to another of my AALLandCreate blog posts showcasing my recently released sets of stamps.
I really enjoyed creating this piece, something a little different, using one of Tim Holtz Framed Panels. I only added a touch of colour to the frame, dry brushing white acrylic paint over the detail to soften the frame a little to blend with my artwork.
 I used my Quirky Blossoms for this piece, which I adore. I stamped the Blossom onto Parchment Paper and then embossed on the back of the Parchment with an embossing tool to give me the white areas.
I stamped onto the parchment paper with VersaMark Ink and then embossed with Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder to add a little sparkle to my design. I added a second layer to the flower to give dimension, adding dimension to the flower head only.
I added some delicate splatters of white paint and added some stitching to the stems. You do have to be careful when sewing into parchment so that the parchment does not tear.
I also included a vintage pen nib, painted silver for further dimension and interest along with the sentiment Simply Beautiful, also stamped onto parchment paper.
I stamped numbers with Distress Oxide Ink using my Date It stamp along with the month of May also stamped onto white card with Distress Oxide Ink.
All the new releases are available from our stockists using the link HERE.
I loved working with parchment this time around and it really does give an alternative look to my stamp designs.
All the AALLandCreate stamp sets are available from the Boutique.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

I loved this when I saw it on TV and it is lovely to see all the detail now! The flower heads are gorgeous - using the embossing tool really did add some wonderful dimension to the flowers and the silver just brings them to life! The pen nib and the number plates are just the icing on the cake. Love this!! Hugs, Anne xx
