Moxie Fab Home Decor

Happy Thursday to you all!
I am having an especially happy Thursday because I just found out I'm the fresh face winner over at the Hero Arts blog! Holy Smokes I can't believe it! :) I'm so honored to be picked among such awesome talent!

Speaking of awesome talent let's talk Moxie Fab! Cath has such great inspiration over there. If you haven't been by there blog you *must* go, it's fantastic :)

This challenge is for Home Decor. I wanted a pretty simple picture to hang in my craft room which is painted a pale turquoise. Here is what I came up with

First let me apologize or the photo quality. Taking a picture while trying to prop it up against . . . well anything and then trying not to get the shine results in this *sorry* :(

I started with a teal background. I cut different size strips and punched them with 5 different borders (all EK Success) I glued them down flat to add a little interest to the background. I added a 1/4 inch strip of red to the top and bottom.

For the focal point I used the Large Flowers stamp (Hero Arts) and stamped once I white. I masked that and stamped again. Continue masking and stamping all t he way across. I colored the flowers with spun sugar, worn lipstick, barn door, spiced marmalade, and mustard seed. I outlined the details with stardust stickles and sewed on a button in the coordinating color. I cut the flowers out as one piece and adhered them with foam.

Here is a close up

I'm still trying to figure out if I'm keeping it :)
