Stamps and flowers...........I love to use both in my work, so when Prima suggested a post using Finn's stamps and their flowers I was in. I need to explain tho that 3D type flowers are not really my thing. I have so much admiration for artists and scrapbookers out there who seem to be able to effortlessly arrange a multitude of amazing flowers on one page.....combine them beautifully with their photos, images and other embellishments. I love 2D flowers; drawn, painted, stamped, collaged or stencilled.
Prima make beautiful floral patterned paper, so my flowers are collaged.
I also love working in art journals and lumpy 3D flowers are not really suitable for this format.
I've used stamps from Finnabair's Tea On The Deck Set. I love the beautiful little tea cup and plate.
The images were stamped with permanent ink and then painted with water colours, cut out and arranged on my page.
The background was misted with distress stains and a couple of the Prima "Frilly Lace" doilies stamped and embossed. Tea cups and doilies always go together. Pretty paper flowers from Prima's Romance Novel Range, and the lady sipping tea is an image transfer.
