Watch for it Wednesday #10

I was sitting at my scrapbooking table the other day and I was dreaming of flowers! I wanted some simple, unique flowers that I could use with a project I was working on. I looked around in my store (LOL I bet a lot of us have own "store" at home!) and nothing was meeting my need. Then it came to me.....I could create my own flowers. I saw this package of stickers and was inspired! :O)

I took the stickers out of the package but I kept the plastic packaging that they came in. Then I started cutting!! I cut out several flowers (you could design any shape you desire!) in a few different sizes.

After I had all of the flowers cut out I couldn't wait to embellish them!

I took out my handy dandy Ranger Inkssentials™ White Opaque Pen and I started doodling. I outlined all of the flowers and on a couple of them I drew polka dots. I cut the centers out of different colored Bazzill paper and I outlined and doodled on them! I used the TSUKINEKO Lulu Lavender Memento Ink Pad to color the purple flower. I just blotted in on top of the cut flower and let it dry for a little while, then it was ready to go!

This is a fun, easy, and economical way to create a multitude of shapes. It is a wonderful way to get the perfect look that you are envisioning when you don't have it in your stash! :O)

Check back on Friday to see how I used these flowers on my project!!!
