Faux Felt flowers

I monitor a small message group that started a weekly challenge. This week it was "Use a stamp you haven't inked before using mellow moss, barely banana and eggplant." It was harder than I thought! Not that I don't have tons of stamps that haven't seen ink but it was hard to get things to go together as easily as I thought they would. Anyway I chose a Whiff of Joy Stamp I recently bought from the Party animal collection.
I colored the image with my copics and after I took the picture I put glassy glaze on the glass and bottle.

But the eggplant flower was made using Technique Junkies new technique of Faux Felt. It looks so much like the bought flowers after I curled it a little. I punched the flower first but next time I might try punching after. The DP paper is from the Spring package of DCWV paper I got at JoAnn's last week....I got a lot of new paper. I really didn't need it but, well you all will understand right? The border punch is Martha Stewart. If you want a better view of the picture, or any one on my blog, you can click on it to see a close up. After I took the picture and looked at it for a while I could see it needed something on the border. I did add some stick on pearls. I'm not sure I like them either but they might stay.

My inspiration for most of my stamping recently is Bev from Newcastle Upon Tyne in England. I love her blog, she has the most amazing cards on her blog. So thank Bev for all the inspiration and eye candy. I wouldn't dare do as much embellishments as you do since I couldn't afford the postage but I sure do admire your work.
