Creative Crew Challenge 4 – June 2014

The fourth and final challenge for the month is Scrapbook and More Focus: “Celebrate your best friend on a scrapbook page or by making a gift for them.” 

Flowers are the perfect gift, so I have made a floral basket using retiring products. The flowers and leaves are from the Secret Garden stamps and Framelits. The basket has been inked using the ‘Embossing Folder Stamping’ technique with the Square Lattice TIEF. I stamped a butterfly from Backyard Basics onto Simply Pressed Clay. After allowing it to dry, I coloured it with an Aqua Painter and inks. All the flowers and the butterfly have been attached to floral wire with a hot glue gun.
