Spool Posy - TPDCC81

Spool Posy by Sue Smith

The Play Date Cafe Challenge 81  found it's inspiration in the colours found on the wallpaper shown below.

I really loved the colours found in the wallpaper and the floral imagery.  At first, I was tempted to try and do some stitching, but in the end the wooden spool sitting on my desk caught my eye and I thought I'd spruce it up with a little posy.  I thought this little spool posy could make a great gift topper!

I've used some Hero Arts flower stamps, along with some paper flowers, florist wire and silk ribbon.  The spool was coated in Distress Stain (Weathered Wood) and I then wrapped some TH tissue tape around the spool and topped it off with silver glitter.

So clever of you, Sue! I'm happy to see something different than a card. Thanks for sharing it with us at The CAFe!
