It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations! This week I have a little frame I bought at Michaels that I decorated and inserted with a sentiment and flowers.
For the inside, I stamped the flowers and “friends” sentiment together so they would fit nicely inside the frame. I then colored the flowers with pencils and mineral spirits and dotted them with White Opal Liquid Pearls.
For the outside, I stamped some Posy Patch Flowers, colored them the same way, shaped them and added them to the frame with some of the beautiful new leaf and vines from the Cut Mat Create Dies. I used a glue gun to adhere everything to make sure it stayed well. I then added some Prills to the flower centers, a fiber bow and a button.
I think this makes a really sweet gift for a friend! I've been collecting these frames from Michaels and have finally found a great use for them! These would be cute gifts for Christmas or teacher gifts with a different sentiment!
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week! So much beautiful work there!
