I stamped the flower from the Flower Gallery Stamp set by Penny Black twice and colored both of them with my Copic Markers. I cut, clipped and curled the top flower and attached them together with my Glue Glider. Flower Soft was added to the center of the flower for extra texture and dimension. (I love that stuff)
Using Therm-O-Web Dimensionals, I added the flowers to the Fleur De Lis Pendant from Spellbinders which had been attached to a piece of DP cut with the Spellbinders Lable One Nesties. The sentiment was stamped using JustRite Birthday Wishes (without the border) and cut out with the Dahlia Nestie.
I ran a piece of May Art's silk ribbon on top of the Madeline K&Company Paper which is cut 5.5x5.5 (shown in this weeks sale) and attached it to the same size of Neenah cream cardstock. It was finished off with a beautiful deep purple silk bow made with the Bow Easy.
Last year for Christmas, I dried several ferns and then I framed them. I stamped a nice sentiment on it and wrote a special letter to my daughter, granddaughters and Mom. They all told me it was the best gift they received. We all decided that this year we all are to make something from the heart. The idea I have had is to etch something for my "girls" this year. So, I needed to practice and I had this bottle that I thought would be a good starting point.
This is my first etching project and I hope you can see it. I used my Cricut to cut out the Dogwood Flower on Vinyl and then I followed this tutorial. It is a very easy and quick process, the etching is completed in 5 minutes.
