wms flower show - which flower is it? (WMS, CFC, Moxie Fab)


OK, it was a no-brainer for me.  The challenge is to CASE a card using WMS flower stamps from the lineup over on the WMS blog.

When I saw Taheerah's beauty, I had my card to CASE.


My approach to CASE = what I remember most about the card, tweaked a bit so as not to be a pure copy.  In this case tree,  pink, brown, white,  twine and splatters.  What happened?  I perused my WMS stamps and was totally lacking in the flower department...

This is what happened.


The brown took the form of kraft and my tree drawn with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker and softened with a water brush.  The blooms became embossed white blooms watercolored pink.  Splatters, white and gold (in honor of Taheerah ;).  And I really truly wanted to do the twine (in the form of a little bow tied around the tree trunk) but I couldn't.  I am sooooo CAS at heart and couldn't bring myself to disturb the sentiment area.  Oh yeah, the sentiment is from Teeny Trees - direct CASE on that front!

I may have been inspired by something else too.  This is my front yard these days.


How well do you know your WMS stamps?  Do you know which set my tiny bloom is from?

  16. How lovely - really like the gold splatters!

    To your question on my Perfect Pearls card - the color does not seem to rub off easily, although I did not really try to rub it of....However, as I said at the bottom - it really depends how good the card looks on the way the light shines on it. From some angles it can look rather dull.... :(
