Yellow Flowers and a White Frame

It’s ‘Less is More’ challenge entry time again, and this week, being the first in the month, it’s a colour theme: yellow. I had in mind for last week’s sketch challenge to do a frame with 3D flowers in, but didn’t end up having enough time to make it. So here’s the same plan, with yellow flowers!

The frame is adapted from a Woodware punch, mounted on double thickness of foam pads. The coloured flowers are die cut from Tim Holtz’s Tattered Floral (the smallest flower) stamped with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and shaded with the new seasonal Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. The ickle flowers are coloured with Squeezed Lemonade DI and then punched out – I ran three of each through a Xyron machine to add adhesive, and then sandwiched the coloured wire between those and three more. Everything else is punched out and all are shaped with a large ball embossing tool. I stuck them down with matte multi medium, added Liquid Pearls and stamped the sentiment (WOW! Everyday Sentiments clear stamp set) in Memento Tuxedo Black.

  3. Neil this is a real stunner!
    I’m loving the use of frames at the moment and this one is ace. The flowers simply tumble out of it and the leaves set them off beautifully.
    Just fab!
    Thanks so much

  9. This is just stunning Neil! I love the way the flowers and leaves are bursting out of the frame and I can see how much time you’ve spent shaping them all. The zing of acidic yellow is perfect and so is the placement of your sentiment.
