Crowded Roses...

aha, it is ATC giveaway time over on the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog... to see all the deets on how I made the ATC, please click HERE. The way to enter to win is simples *I so wish I could type that ickle clicky thing that the meerkats do... just imagine I have done that LOL* ... leave a comment for me here, leave a comment for me there.. or both... and your name will be entered into the draw - if you do leave comments on both, you will be entered twice :O))




Here is a little peek at the ATC... oh, I am loving those new Crowded Attic papers... especially the butterflies and moths... oooh, which reminds me... the theme for the Sunday Stamper this week is Nature... so this ATC can be my second entry :O))



The other thing I have been doing this week is playing with Clearly For Art... have you tried this yet??? It is FAB! Totally mouldable when warmed up, if you don't like the way it has curled, you can just reheat it and it flattens out again. Well, I saw that Wendy Vecchi had covered some with patterned papers ...and just as I was drifting off to sleep the other night, I had a flash of inspiration... see if covering it with fabric works... and it does!!! I used Multi Medium to glue the fabric down and then once it had dried, diecut it using the Tattered Florals Alterations and then heat it - from behind works best - and voila! I love it!!!




Then I got even more excitable and tried it with Claudine's Stickyback Canvas... oooh, this works a treat too. These two flowers are just "try me's" but I am deffo going to be using this technique on a little something I am cooking up at the moment :O)) Right, bedtime for moi.. ohh and goodly news indeedily... I made myself a cup of coffee *not that that is anything to write home about but...* I tasted it!!! ooooh, yesh, I am slowly getting my taste back... hurrah and thrice, I have high hopes for my morning coffee, in ... erm... the morning! Thanks for looking... TTFN

Great atc. Count me in for the chance. Love your flowers. My packs of Clearly for art came yesterday so I can play soon. Glad you can taste your coffee again. I would shrivel up and die without mine.

Glennis said...

I am needing twice the chance - what interesting things you have done with that mouldable 'stuff' I had not heard of it before

craftimamma said...

Yup, I had to have a go on both blogs to double my chances of holding this fab piece of work in mhy sticky mits. Love those flowers too Hels.

Beautiful work Hels. Sticky back canvas and the tattered florals die I have but not the rest - yet lol! - I'm sure I can work out some variations though. Thanks for the inspiration, you are such a clever lass ;-)

Helen said...

Comment #2. This is the slobbery, down on one knee, full of comments one!!LOL.
I love your ATC (true) I turn your flowers in every direction to see how you have made them in the hopes that my feeble attempts don't look like they've been picked for a month. The samples with the clearly for art look exciting. Can't wait for more from you using that. And finally, I am REALLY glad your taste has returned so you can enjoy your coffee this morning.
Hugs and kisses and luv

So glad you're getting your taste back Hels!

Love the ATC. The rose looks gorgeous and I guessed from your snazzy title that you'd used the new Tim papers.

Your fabric flowers look fab too.

Right I'm off to see how you did the ATC, and have a second chance to win lol.

Boy, you know how to make the most gorgeous flowers. The ATC is so pretty with roses and butterfly, and what a great idea to cover CFA with fabric. Now that you tried this it makes perfect sense and looks so natural. LOVE IT!

Your atc is lovely! Love the flowers, especially how the butterfly on the flower paper coordinates with your beautiful butterfly. Thanks for the chance at a great prize!

Kirsten Alicia said...

Gorgeous ATC & I love the flowers too. Haven't got my head round CFA for some reason, but it certainly seems to be good stuff. Glad you're feeling better.
