Floating Flowers

I bought one of the new clings from Hero Arts last Thursday called Floating Flowers. Here are two different projects I created using the stamp.
The first card is for the Gradient is Radient challenge hosted by Cathy over at the Moxie Fab World Blog.

The Floating flowers is stamped using a Colorbox Ink called Chianti. I was looking for a rich red in a pigment ink and thought I would try this out. Very chalky in texture.

I used watercolor pencils to add yellow, orange and red in the petals and stems of the flowers.

The tag is sponged with the Adirondack Yellow and Orange.

The next project was for the shabby chic tag. I was trying it again as I wasn't happy with my first tag. Love the overlay of the stamp in the same color ink over patterned paper. I used the Basic Grey paper as my background and layered the floating flowers stamp on top.

The other stamps include Impression Obsessions Nest Definition Cling stamp and Memory Box. The color on the floating flowers in Ranger Distress Inks Shabby Shutter. The bird and branch are embossed with the Zing Embossing Powder in Brown and the rest is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.

Have a fantabulous day!



  1. Both are lovely Suzz. your tag is quite vintage looking - the overstamping with two different stamps looks fab.

  2. El sello es muy decorativo, pero como tu lo ha empleado es genial, las dos con el mismo sello Diferentes Tan Y, no hay ninguna elegir Se Puede, las dos son fant├ísticas. ¡Uff!, Si te Tuviera cerca estaria todo el dia detras de ti para que me ense├▒aras, jajaj. Besitos.
