C.R.A.F.T 47 - Pink & Brown

My project this week is using a collection of digi-stamps from Stamping Dragon at 'Stitchy-Bear Stamps' and it's called 'Clock-Faces'.
You get a generous collection of images (six images with three different formats for each) for your pennies and they're produced in a high-resolution format so can be enlarged without the pixillation common in some lesser-quality brands.

It's a hybrid format I've used as the image mat is in digi format, using a digital background paper in soft antique browns with the clock images placed on top. Then I've 'buttonized' the image before printing, giving a kind of 'distressed edge.

This I have matted with 3D Foam squares onto a 21cm square Bazzill Bling in Shell Pink.

The rest is just as easy. The dots around the outside of the image-mat and the centre of each clock-face are just little dots of Stickles. It gives a lovely effect on the photo paper because the solvent in the Stickles melts the ink on the paper a little bit and so causes a 'pool' effect in the ink around each dot.

Finally, the ubiquitous flowers, which I've highlighted, here and there, with Stickles!

Hope you like it!

I've also entered this into the 'One Stitch at a Time' challenge which has a theme of 'Flowers'!
