Guess what?? MORE flowers!

These are really fun. This is NOT my idea...I got it from Jessica Seppa. Sorry no blog for her, but if you call Maya Road to place an'll talk to Jess. Tell her that I said "HI". She's a SWEETHEART!
So...these are wire flowers made by Maya Road.
I've painted them before and alcohol inked them to color and I've used them as is. But Jess said to fill them with Glossy Accents & you get this. Just place them on a scrap of paper & fill with Glossy Accents, then set aside to dry. When they are totally dry, cut off the excess paper. DONE!
It's a great tip, because they can be customized to coordinate with any card or layout, using just a scrap of paper. Try it!
And speaking of flowers...did you see the new Maya Road flowers coming out @ CHA? I'm sure they were made just for me!! The felt & the ones with the stitching had me drooling. Totally cool...check it out on their blog. Don't forget to leave a comment just might win!
Hmmm...I wonder who makes that cool screen stamp in the photo?? Could it possibly be studio 490??
Here's the studio 490 stamp info for yesterdays card...
* The stamp on the kraft colored background is one HUGE stamp. Everything you see on there is on the stamp. I did the stitching to save you time. However, you can easily trace over the stitching to accent it or add dots from a glaze pen...This stamp is another favorite. You can also stamp it & EASILY use just a portion of it to make a number border...
* The lines on the circle...not perfect lines...vintage looking...LOVE IT! You can also stamp it, then turn it 90 degrees and stamp it again to make a plaid background.
* The roof is actually a corner stamp. Once again...look @ the potential...don't just look @ the stamp for what it's SUPPOSED to be. It looked like a roof to me & was a perfect fit for the chipboard house from Maya Road.
* Saying
* Flower's fun to add rhinestones or pearls to the flower centers...
* Grungeboard flower...and on the right, you'll see that I needed a tiny accent, so I used just a portion of the flower...
* and last...the dots on the Maya Road Microchip arrow...those are from another stamp...I used just a portion of it... as a background.
Happy Thursday to you!
I'm headed to the studio...I still have TON to get done before CHA!
Take care!
ps...sorry for the look of this post. Mr Blogger would not let me change the spacing...grrrrrrrrrr...
