"I must have a cat whom I find homeless, wandering about the court, and to whom, therefore, I am under no obligation. I have already selected a dirty little drunken wretch of a kitten to be the successor to my poor old cat."
I was racking my brain (such as it is!) to think what I could make for the MFP Inspiration Challenge - Flower Pot People.
Then......I spied my whimsical masked lady with wings by Teesha Moore. (Teesha is the artist who also designed the "Old and Curious" stamp I used in my very strange and eerie doctor book page project.) So I hit on actually putting her IN a flower pot!!.....the stamped image, that is, not Teesha! :o
Since this gal with the crown has been sedately biding her time unused in my stash for months, she also qualifies as a NBUS item..."Never Before Used Schtuff"....for Darnell's challenge.
Here's a closer look at her sitting in her Stamping Up Flower Pot.
I chose some delicious K & Co. papers in wonderful autumn colors for this project and really love the blue foil accents in the background paper. So I pulled (and pulled...and pulled) out this string of metallic blue faux pearls. After trying to figure out how to use them on here, I finally just draped them all over the background and laid the image panel on top. LOVE the look!! Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue came to the rescue for securely adhering this viperine strand!!! Yay!! (See, I told you that failed "rainbow" project had a good takeaway!!) It also was just the thing for putting my image panel down on top of the beads.
Some amazing Prima Flowers, a few blue accents for the crown, and gold sequins here and there finished off the card.
(More about those flowers in a moment....)
Here is an angled shot so you can see the lovely metallic sheen. Yum!!!
*******FANTASTIC PRODUCT ALERT*******
I got the item (reg price $15.99) when it was half-price thinking it was still pretty expensive for 72 flowers, but I do love my Prima...... However, when I took this out of the JoAnn shipping box, I nearly lost my teeth!! This is a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig tube of flowers. The description says 7-3/4" x 3", which is correct. But the flowers are really stuffed in there and the net weight of 1.20 oz doesn't nearly communicate just how many flowers you are getting!!!! They are of all shapes and sizes and colors and include some leaves, too. I get the idea that these are the collected leftovers or end runs from their factory. Yay!!! I love having the huge selection!! Some I recognize from other Primas I already own, but most are new ones to me. So, if you love flowers as much as I do, put this on your JoAnn wishlist and wait for a great sale....then snag it!
Hope you enjoyed my card today. I had a lot of fun with it! Also, let me know if you like my product alert mini-reviews (like I did with Beacon 3-in-1 with my rainbow card and today with the Prima flowers). If so, I will try to do more of those, too.
Have a lovely week!!!
