To make the skirt it took less than one sheet of real rose patterned paper from the 'Brights- Designer series paper pad'. These pads are packed full of delicious papers and in the stampin' Up! catalogue they don't get much space and they are so....so...fantastic for the money!!!
I punched the edge with the 'eyelet border' punch' and stamped along the edge with the trusty swirl from 'Baroque Motifs' and chocolate chip ink, the little flower accent was made by simply stamping the flower from the same stamp set on to a spare scrap of the paper, trimming to follow the edge, 2 were layered up with a small brad and scrunched to form a 'distressed' flower. Think I will make a few more little bits to adorn this yet xxx
