Hello. Welcome. Playing with stencils, ink, stamps and ye olde cardboard tube from the center on the kitchen paper roll.
Take one cardboard tube.
I used STAMPlorations Happy Flower stencil and splatted with Mustard Seed distress stain. Ooops, too much splatting. Lots of colour under my stencil. So I ran it throug the big shot and embossed the flowers
Pretty, but I felt it needed a bit more colour
OK, I went a little crazy with the Ripe Persimon.
I wrapped it around my cardboard tube and then forgot to take more photo's!!
Ta dah. I added lace to the bottom, squeezed it flat and glued. I stamped and watercoloured flowers from STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches, fussy cut and stuck them on. The words are also from the Bloom Sketches set. I added some more lace around the top. The two leaf brads hold the twine and the flower brad holds it closed. I know it looks a bit like very colourful toothpaste tube but these are excellent for small gifts. A necklace, some markers maybe for a crafty friend, a silk scarf. Have also decided it makes just a nice bit of wall art, or add a bit of pot potpourri and it would be great smelling wall art.
