I Brake For Bister Flowers

{jane bosi}
Happy Monday, Brakers!!!  As promised, it's a month of Floral Mondays here on the I Brake For Stamps blog!

I couldn't help, but play with my bisters again while creating floral projects all month!  The bisters become easier to control the more you play with them and produce an intriguing background every time!

For this project, I began by creating a floral resist using several images from Floral Half Sheet 148A and Floral Half Sheet 148B..  I stamped the images in versamark on water color paper.  Then, using white embossing powder, I embossed each of them.  Once cooled, I was able to sprinkle bisters in strategic places to create the colorful background you see.  I was specific to place only red bisters in the center of the two cone flowers....I love how this turned out!

To finish things off, I used my white signo pen to color the cone flower petals and some distress markers for other accenting.  I just got this cute little stampy stapler so, that is now my favorite rustic accent--you might be seeing it a lot for awhile :)

TTFN, Jane
