Handmade Topiary

The picture above is the inspiration photo from Off The Wall Craftiness. I forgot to add it in my original post.

Look at that gorgeous inspiration picture for the Timeless Tuesday #118 challenge! The topiary was made by Julia Sandvoss who graciously gave them permission to use the picture.




I've always loved the look of topiaries and have played around in my mind with making one. So, today's card is a fulfillment of them thought on a miniscule scale. I made this one using a little tiny flower punch (I punched out about a zillion!) that I adhered to a die cut circle using scor-tape, and I added little white dots in the center of each using dimensional fabric paint. I am also using the Viva La Verve May week 3 sketch and the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge to use lime/seafoam/brown. The topiary paper was made using a new stamp set I just got from Clear Dollar stamps (it is one of their retiring sets: all the stamps needed to make a fireplace scene--I don't know what the name is).

Very,very pretty, Heather! Great idea and would you believe I thought about doing the same thing with the little Flourishes roses I used? Actually, you put a lot more work into yours than I did. I used the stamp set and took the easier way out.
