Hi folks! Donna here to share another project for this month. Still about using flowers and ribbons which is May's challenge theme.
Hope you like it and get inspired to join this month
For this layout, I scrapped about my hubby's surprise gifts last Valentine's day. On rare occasions, he will give me gifts but seldom flowers. He knows I love teddy bears but being here in Saudi Arabia, I haven't found anything that I liked yet. I always tell him I'd love to receive something craft-related or nothing at all.. And I MEAN THE "BIG STUFF" (**cough**Cameo**Cricut**cough**and other new scrapbook stuff**cough**)... lol!! :D
BUT on that day, he gave me the cutest little teddy bear and loveliest 3 pink roses..e.v.e.r.... I literally shrieked when I saw these on our bed! Ha!!! TOO SWEET!!! lol! :D
First off, I used my fave stencil Bubble Mask (so far) from Studio Calico. Spread some gesso/modeling paste/texture paste on the base cardstock. I used my heat tool for fast drying time.
To add more texture and colors, stamp on the surface and apply Mod Podge to adhere the micro beads. I really liked how the stamped images created an interesting effect on the irregular surface.
Set it aside. Get one of the On Trend paper flowers and spray with your choice of glimmer mist....
some washi tapes...
