Love is the Flower

I decided to dig out the paper and make an 8x8 scrap page.   No digi this time.   Gasp!  I used the Verve stamp set – Loves Flower.

I ran some textured vellum through my Big Shot and embossed it then rubbed some vintage photo ink on it.  I also used that same vellum to cut out some butterflies.

Isn’t that a pretty little flower?  I stamped two images, colored them with my copic markers then cut the middle image out and layered it, using dimensionals, on to the other image.  

Here’s a little closer look.

I love the dyed seam binding that is for sale at several Etsy shops.  Or…..  you can dye your own..   Its all crinkly and fun.  I put a piece of sticky strip across the page, then bunch and crunch the ribbon to the strip. Now I've just got to find a pretty little frame to put it in.

Products used:   Verve – Loves Flower.  Copics. CTMH – Buttercup, breeze. Pin. Jewels. Stickles. Antique photo distress ink. Seam binding ribbon.  Nestabilities – Labels 10. Vellum.

“Everything is clearer when you're in love.”
John Lennon

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality” John Lennon

Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow.
John Lennon

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal.
John Lennon

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon

Pin It!
