Sheena Douglass Anemeone
My mum told me about these lovely stamps and dies that could be used to make wonderful flowers. I investigated and discovered they were the Sheena Douglass Anemone stamp and die sets.
I managed to get hold of the set and came up with this!
The background is made from black card and a fabric weave stencil, through which I added gilding wax. I used 3 colours, Gold, Bronze and Silver.
The flowers were made by die cutting the anemone then embossing them back through the die. I rubbed gilding wax gently onto the flowers and leaves then buffed them to a shine. After this I shaped the petals and leaves using my flower shaping tools and mat and adhered them to the card front using silicone glue.
The 3 'brads' to the right of the card I made by rubbing some bronze gilding wax onto a scrap bit of black card and punching out the dots with my Crop a dile. Using a ball tool, I shaped them into tiny domes and used a tiny dot of silicone glue to stick them on.
