Happy Birthday Andrea! Today, the Just Us Girls DT is celebrating Andrea's Birthday, (one of our newest DT Members) I hope your special day is as wonderful as you are :) Please hop on over to BOTH Andrea's blog & the Just Us Girls site to wish her a BIG Happy Birthday :)
I created the circular window using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-114 Standard Circles LG die template. First, I cut the window out of the DP, then adhered a circle cut from a solid piece of cs in the window. I think the off white cs really makes that gorgeous blossom "pop". For sketch inspiration, I joined in the fun & played along with the brand spankin' new Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Site! From a bird's eye view:
Up close, you can see the multi-layered Big Bloom. Since I am quite new & still getting familiar with my air compressor, I am experimenting a bit. After inking up & stamping 3 various sized images from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Big Blooms: Chrysanthemums set, I sprayed the images using my Copic ABS-3 Airbrush, then using a super sharp pair of scissors, cut each one out. Rubbed the edges with some distressing ink then layered them, fastening a brad in the center. If you look closely, you will notice the flowers are not uniform in color - that was by trial & error! What do you think?
That's all for today - Hope you have a chance to wish Andrea a Happy Birthday :) Thanks so much for taking the time to look & all of your comments are appreciated. Be Sweet!
