Fabulous Fundamental - Scripted Flowers

Awhile ago,  I looked at my stash the other day in search of THE perfect flower accent. Do you think I could find one??? No! It didn't have the script I felt would be SO complementary to my layout nor did I have the right colour. So what is a girl to do??? Yup, make one! :-)

So I thought I would share how to make my version of a scripted flower!

Start with a Prima flower - any colour will do depending on the glimmer mist you choose - in my case, this little flower was already sitting on my desk smiling at me :-)

Then stamp a petite but simple design directly onto your flower. I used Memento ink but Staz On would certainly work too! Dye based inks do not work as well with this project as they tend to react with the spray mists.

Let the stamped flower dry. 

Choose your mists and gently mist over the stamped flower.

Dry thoroughly.

Adorn as desired. Here I dipped a brad into some Tattered Angels glam as I did not have any red brads for the centre.

Hope you enjoyed our Fabulous Fundamental. All supplies are available from the Scrap Shotz store.
