My Besties with Flower


It seems awhile since My Besties got to my work space and it feels good to have her there 
This CHALLENGE is to use flowers . Instead of attaching flowers I punched the flower lined it with print and added a threaded button

                                                  A note to self " buy yellow ribbon"
                                     I cut white ribbon and dragged it over an ink pad
                                  Now look at the ribbon I have and none of it is yellow
                                                Some look yellow here but they are taupe

SFF 247 More than one border

I used a border embossing folder and a punched border the stamp set is MFP  Vintage Fashion
The hat is three layers popped with foam dots  Come p;layw ith us show us your ideas using more than one border.......

SFF 245 Rainbow Colors

The challenge 245 calls for ALL the colors of the rainbow
Now this stamp pad I have used for the background is called a rainbow pad .. Well the colors it has are in the rainbow but only 5 of them I know there are 7 colors in the rainbow and there is an order in which they stand and the pad is WRONG ! right? the pad is wrong  That said I used the pad for the 5 colors and with the Medallion MFP set I cut and popped  layers using the other two colors
Let me remember the rainbow goes  ROYGBIV  The ink pad has the red orange yellow green and blue so I used the violet and indigo on the flower I know because it says so on the pencils .

The photos shown for this Shabby Chic challenge are of beds , beautiful over stuffed over pillowed fluffy soft beds . My idea of shabby chiic is lace and pearls and worn and faded , so I put the two together and decided to lock the bedroom  door with MFP stamps from the set "Keys" Because that is what should happen right? Every girl should have a beautiful overstuffed shabby chic bed and a key to her door

Baby Oil Technique

 The Baby Oil Technique
I did this background and fence with the technique  It is easy not very messy to do and ends up gorgeous
Things don't want to stick to the oil I find tacky glue works well tape and foam dots .not so much.....
Memento ink stamps directly on the oiled background  I didn't try other inks.
