If friends were flowers


     It's Bellarific Friday!  Time for a project for Stamping Bella.  I've used the sweet Uptown Girl "Pippa Loves To Plant" stamp along with last week's challenge sketch.

Sketch-10---may-23

     I changed up the placement of the sentiment a bit.  Didn't want to completely cover up the diagonal cut.  I used my Memory Box Fabulous Phlox die to cut my flowers from white paper then I colored them with Copics.  The woodgrain background was made form a brand new stamp I picked up at half off from Michael's.  It's Heidi Swapp and measure 5.25" square.  Nice to not have to try to piece it together for coverage.  I popped the diagonal panels up on foam dots so that Pippa is recessed.


     Hope you'll pop over to Blogabella to see what my team mates have cooked up for the sketch challenge.  Here's next week's inspirational photo for the next challenge.

  8. Just beautiful, Tracy! Really like the diagonal cut and the kind of window you've created around sweet Pippa. And I love your Copic colored die cut flowers, the color is awesome and pops against the woodgrain background.
    Have a nice weekend!
