Freestyle Florals


These beauties were inspired by Laura Bassen's creation for the Mama Elephant release of Freestyle Florals.
I simply stamped an A4 sheet full of all the different images (flowers and leaves), coloured them very loosely with the Kuretake Gansai watercolours and then sat down in front of Comic Relief does Bake Off and cut them all out. Yes, by hand! With a pair of scissors! I’m slipping…
The birthday sentiment is from the Winnie & Walter set  - again hand cut! – and selectively glued to make it stand out.
The “mother’s” was designed on and cut out by the Cricut (I say designed, it looks like Lucida Handwriting from here!) and I think the other words are from the Big & Bold set too.
Pretty huh? And even I can’t kill these kind of flowers!
