The Timeless Arrangements bundle is lovely, with the floral images and the huge range of wonderful die cuts. In fact, the die cuts are so lovely, it's easy to overlook the stamps! I wanted to create something that used only the stamps, as a kind of consolation for the fact I'd mostly ignored them. Inspiration came from the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
I started by stamping a couple of the grape hyacinth stamps in each corner in Tuxedo Black and then some leaves. I coloured them using Lost Lagoon and Berry Burst blends. Then I added some Pool Party bubbles. This stamp is the quiet star of the set in my opinion. 😀
Then I blended some Pool Party around the decorated corners and added a few Bubble Bath pink flowers to the mix.
I was spoiled for choice with the sentiments, with there not only so many options but so many combinations, but settled on 'You make me smile'. There was a brief moment of stress until I was sure I'd stamped it straight - perhaps next time, I'd stamp the sentiment first, just in case!
Then I added a few of those wonderful Brushed Brass Butterflies, looking as if they're fluttering about a garden.
