Botanicals

Sunday, May 18, 2014

Everything is in bloom for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, we are challenging everyone to a Botanical theme. My intent was to create a simple project that could be mailed easily.
...And that I could get could get done fast.
The mini cabinet photo frames fit perfectly with the beautiful PaperArtsy stamped floral images. I love these frames. If you like old photographs or paper ephemera, you'll love them too. And check out the back of the frames. Isn't the vintage design wonderful?

I used two stamped images and connected them with a repurposed chain. (ie. an old, broken necklace) A piece of string or ribbon would have also worked.
Simple stamping. Lovely results!
Link your botanical project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you have the opportunity to win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. Your project could also be chosen to be in our weekly Designer Spotlight.

  7. This is so pretty Michelle and what a great idea making them into a wall-hanging. I was looking at those cabinet cards the other day and the backs are so pretty. Love the colouring of the flowers.

  13. These are amazing! I love how you made the flowers so bold and bright against those gorgeously dusty vintage frames. And what a great idea to link them together with chain! They reminded me of the stunning dried flower collages that my grandma had in her house when I was little. They, too, were framed, and I would stare at them all the time-- intrigued by the combo of floral framing. I love how you always recreate some sort of memory and evoke emotion with your artistically soothing pieces.
