Flower Child

Sorry to be so slow in posting much lately - it was again time to work on some sample cards for the next Technique Junkie newsletter so that's where my focus was for a bit.
I just got a wonderful sheet of Time To Stamp stamps from I Brake For Stamps called Children ATCs and I'll be sharing some cards it this month...

STAMPS: all stamps from I Brake For Stamps ~ child, texture, words - Time To Stamp line full sheet 'Children ATCs', stems - Stampinback line 'Scratch Flowers', script bkgd - from Collage Elements #1 half-sheet

INKS: Stampin' Up! Creamy Caramel and Pink Pirouette, Staz-On Jet Black, Colorbox Pigment Pad Frost White

SUPPLIES: EK Success flower punches, mini brushed silver and regular flower brads, crimper, distressing tool, white gel pen

TECHNIQUES: Technique Junkies Torn Frames and Faux Felt

NOTES: the flower stems grouping is all one height but I varied the heights by stamping it at different levels ~ I filled the dress in with white gel pen to draw focus to her ~ the dark cs looks black but is actually a linen texture charcoal color ~ the blue in real life is a greyed down tone rather than what shows here ~ there's a very cool little flourish on the sheet that I wanted to make a little crown from, but it was just to much going on, so next time maybe ;o)

Have a great day and I hope you can find a little time to stamp :o)
