A Funky Flower Magnet - MFT Blog Hop

Welcome to another MFT blog hop. If you have arrived here on your own and not from Paula's blog but would like to start at the beginning of the hop, head over to Kim's blog.


I have for your viewing pleasure a sample using MFT Presents - Funky Flowers by a new illustrator, Sara Williams.

I covered a chipboard with inspire design paper. I then stamped and masked the flower over top of the vase adding some steams after all the flowers had been stamped. The flowers were colored with Prismacolor markers. I then stamped the flowers again, colored them the same way and cut them out completely. I then mounted them on top of the flowers using Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots. Before mounting them, I went back in on the original image and using an xacto knife, cut around the steams.

For the vase, I stamped it onto close to cocoa and then covered it with Helmar's Crackle Medium. Sponging on some distress Vintage ink after the crackle had set. The vase was attached with glue dots. The entire image though is attached to the chipboard with dimensionals. A magnet was added to the back of the chipboard. (yes, it is hanging on my fridge in the picture.)

stamp: Funky Flowers; ink: black; paper: white, close to cocoa, inspire design paper; accs: prisamcolor markers, helmar crackle medium, helmar liquid scrap dots, helmar acid free glue, chipboard, magnet, xacto knife

I am sending this to my grandma for her birthday, she'll be 90 something. Hence the reason I kept it kinda simple.

This new illustrator, Sara Williams, is the sister of Susan who happens to be the next blog you are hopping to! Have fun!

This is really cool, and if I understand it correctly...you stamped and masked the flowers on the BASE of the paper (on DP) colored them then stamped then again colored and cut them out then mounted them on top of the already stamped flowers...is this correct? What is Helmer's? Does M's or Jo's carry it? What about Wal Fart??? Hmmmm, new product....
