I used a technique from Technique Junkies Newsletter August 2008. Technique Junkies is a wonderful newsletter with tons of techniques and ideas to use.
I love this stamp set, Nature Walk, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Botanical Gazette, from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Great time to buy from Stampin' Up! with Sale-a-bration going on now. The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set.
Made the flowers with the Itty Bitty punch and the smallest flower in the Boho Blossoms punch. I love using the embossing tool to make the petals curl up. The sentiment is punched with the Wide Oval Punch and stamped in Marina Mist. I used silver embossing powder between the "tiles". I stamped the bird and flowers on the designer paper in Early Espresso.
We have family here with us this weekend and didn't have to travel to NC. Yahoo! I love visiting with them and have so much fun. Have a great weekend!
