Default TLC371~Faux Pressed Flowers~ (04/02/12)

Hi Stampers!

I don't know about you, but I am itching to get flowers planted! It's been in the 70's and 80's here for nearly a month and we've done quite a bit of watering so our grass is looking nice. Now I am ready for some color, and some veggies/berries, too! My son tells me I have to wait until after Mother's day, though... boooo!!

~
Faux Pressed Flowers
~

Since I am in a flower kind of mood, I thought that today we would give Anne Harada's Faux Pressed Flowers technique a try. It really is quite simple and delightful. You can view the tutorial in the resources section HERE. There is even a video!

Here is my sample:

~ A Single Step ~

When uploading your creation, please include KEYWORD TLC371 (no spaces)

***ALSO, please note that there is a special gallery set aside for this technique. When uploading, choose the faux pressed flowers gallery from the drop down menu. Thank you!!***

You can view the entire TLC371 gallery HERE.

Can't wait to see what you all create! I'm finally going to be home on a Monday to see!!!

Have fun!

Love this technique! I tried something a little different, using a larger floral image. Here is my card, Lattice Orchid.

Thanks for the challenge and technique, Holly. I'm not a huge fan of this "embedding the design" trend......little too busy for my taste, but I thought if I only partially embedded my image that I would like it better....and I did. It's always good to force oneself to do something one wouldn't ordinarily do....guess that what challenges are all about! : )

Heart TLC371 Angel's Robe Pansy

Holly: Thanks for the great challenge! I used a pretty card, and a recycled coffee sleeve, along with some ribbon and a stamped image from Anita's Place. My tags and white strip are embossed with a Halloween EF from Cuttlebug. Here's TLC371 Angel's Robe Pansy

GREAT challenge Holly! Love that look and it's the first time I've done that. Used some old prima flowers that have been hiding in my stash.

here is mine:

Smile TLC371 Leaves and Flowers

Holly- this is so fun! I got out my full size Cuttlebug- so my whole card got embossed- much better than my prior efforts with my smaller Sidekick
I used Sizzix' Branches with Leaves #2 for my EF, and SU's Watercolor Trio for my dark green branches. Here's Leaves and Flowers
