Some Flowers for Aunt Ruth

Recently at a family gathering, my Aunt Ruth, age 86 and hostess of the event, took a tumble.  We didn’t know it at the time but found out after a trip to the ER that she had broken her hip and her elbow and had surgery the next day on both.  I was very thankful for two of my cousins, one a nurse and the other an EMT.  She was in excellent hands from the moment she fell and was a real trouper throughout the ordeal.  Aunt Ruth is staying on a rehabilitation floor for a while not able to enjoy her flowers she takes such pride in.  I thought I would make her a ‘bunch’ to enjoy until she is able to go home. Nice thing about these is they won’t ever wilt!.

I used the Flower Patch photo-polymer stamp set to create the flowers, taking inspiration from page 154 of the annual catalog.  I also used the new Flower Fair Bigz Die to cut out the leaf stems.

I took inspiration from a recent post by Brian King www.StampwithBrian.com where he used crystal effects on a punched circle to make it resemble a button.  I didn’t do that, but pulled out my long neglected bottle of Crystal Effects and added it to the centers of each of the flowers for some dimension.

I like the texture it adds. 2-IMG_1565Just remember to let it dry, over night is best, when using a big blob like I did.

Don’t forget the inside.  I added a phrase from the perfect Pennants with some stamped off flowers in the corners.
