After using the Make it Market Mini Garden Guild stamps in my last post, I thought to myself that it would so cool to have it in the polar opposite – lots of big bold colour.
When I saw the amazing inspiration photos for this month’s blog hop challenge, I just knew it was a match made in heaven.
I suppose people would look at the photos and think of embroidered flowers or shades of grey. Me, I wanted to make a dress. A dress of flowers. The flowers needed to be stunning, yet highlight the dress itself.
While I liked the idea of grey as a background, that didn’t satisfy my need for big bold colour. So I went with a white background and cut out a big billowy dress. Then I stamped the flowers with all sorts of bright colours from my ink stash. The sentiment is from the Signature Greetings set as this is going to be a thank you card to an awesome girlfriend.
