Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Yay! It's time once again for the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop! We're celebrating Spring!

Sankari Wegman has designed a most wonderful sketch for us to play with. I turned it upside down so that my circle element would suggest a sun shining on the flowers. The flowers are from the Friendship Blooms stamp set.

I stamped the stems and inked all edges in Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The flowers are stamped in Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink. After cutting them out with the coordinating TE Friendship Blooms Dies, I sponged them with a little more Spun Sugar and then Walnut Stain, and topped them off with buttons from the Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper.

And, yes, that lovely paper and the die cut circle are from Emma's Shoppe! I love love love this collection!




Enjoy the hop!
