A bit of Flonz



Morning Peeps, thought I had better do a quick post before  work and  share  my  mid  month  inspirational pieces for FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges. There is a fabulous $20 store  spend to  be won  so I really hope you will join in this months challenge.

The one above is my take on this months theme of 'From the Garden', I love all the FlonzCraft elegant fashion ladies from the collection but I think this is one of my favourites. I have paper pieced the dress of the lady on the left and created a garden scene using Flonz blossoms across the top and grounded them with some cobblestones and a few flowers and pots. The sky and background was all done with Pan Pastels.


This second piece is a bit of a late runner as it was by second piece for the 'Wings and Things' August theme and should have been posted when we were on holiday but afraid I forgot. Quite a simple make using some DP's from stash and FlonzCraft butterflies from a trio set which I stamped onto coordinating DP, shaped the leading edge round the pattern and popped some lace behind.

Happy Wednesday all.
