It’s been a year since the Botanical Builder Framelits were released and I can’t believe that I haven’t shown this project to you yet! I rediscovered this scrapbook page as I was looking through some of my archived projects. I made this scrapbook page last March. It was one of the projects that I brought with me to OnStage 2016 in Salt Lake City when I was selected as a Display Board Stamper.
It was such an honor to be selected as a display board stamper! It still blows my mind that I was selected from a wealth of talent that applied for the job! Such a huge blessing. I’ve applied again this year so keep your fingers crossed for me! Okay, let’s talk about this Botanical Builder hand-painted flower scrapbook page!
Botanical Builder Hand-Painted Spring Flower Scrapbook Page
The challenge with this page was that I needed to avoid using any retiring products, which was tough because all of the sentiments and alphabet stamps I owned were retiring! I ended up piecing together a few stamps to get the title for this page. Most of the stamps used to create the page title are from Time of Year, which is an exclusive stamp sets for hosts. (When you have a party or a large purchase that totals $150 or more in products, you can select Time of Year for free until May 31, 2016).
I made the word “it’s” by inking up parts of the “this” stamp and positioning it with a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. Oh the crazy things I do to follow the rules! The flowers on the greeting panel were created with the Rock and Roll technique using Peekaboo Peach ink as the base and rolling the edges in Flirty Flamingo ink. Gosh, these two colors together are so gorgeous!
I took the word “beautiful” from the Easter stamp in the Suite Sayings stamp set, which was also positioned with a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
But let’s talk about those hand-painted Botanical Builder Framelits flowers, shall we? Each one of these light pink flowers started out as white. I used the Botanical Builder Framelits dies to cut a bunch of white flowers from some Whisper White cardstock. Each flower was then gently sponged with a bit of Flirty Flamingo ink. I made sure the outer edges of the flower were paler than the middle. Once the sponging was finished, I used a just barely wet aqua painter to add some veins. They were painted in a combination of Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder. The stamens were created with So Saffron paper, which has been sponged with a bit of Peekaboo Peach. Here’s a close-up of the hand-painted flowers:
