TPE Scrap Challenge #5

This week's challenge at TPE is to make handmade flowers. I've got 2 different flowers that I've used on my layout. I got the inspiration for the big yellow flower on the Hero Arts Flickr pool (some amazing stuff there btw). I made the flower by stamping the image with my Hero Arts Large Flower cling stamp with versa mark ink onto yellow vellum then embossed it with white embossing powder. There are actually 2 stamped flowers there. I love the looks of it and have a little stash already made up to use in the future. All the little flowers were used from the Kaiser flowers I followed a tutorial here to make them, love the outcome of them so much more than the purchased product, I might even go out and buy more :)

The beautiful subject of my layout is my little niece that my brother and sister in law adopted from Africa. She is delicately sniffing my mom's peony tree blossoms. This was 3 years ago already, time sure does fly.

Be sure to head on over to TPE to see what the rest of the design team came up with this week.
