Paper Smooches August 2015 Guest Designer

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Hello Sunshine!
I'm back again with another Paper Smooches project using some of  their newest release products.
I started by creating a circle mask to sponge on some color to ground my focal point.  I created a potted plant by die cutting the Ice Cream Cone Die base in brown cardstock and adding some details with brown copic markers.

I then stamped the hibiscus image from Summer Lovin' three times, colored them with copics, and fussy cut them out.
I arranged the flowers in the pot and adhered it to the sponged circle.  I added a sentiment from the same stamp set on a flag cut piece of cardstock.
A few enamel dots add the finishing detail.  Thanks so much for visiting.  I have one more post to share with you next Wednesday.   See you then!

Additional Supplies Used:
PTI Hawaiian Shores Cardstock
LF Circle Dies
SSS Stitched Rectangle Dies
