Spring Bloom by Brenda Wampler

Stamp image of your choice using waterproof ink onto water-colored paper. Use water-colors to color in your stamped image. Once dry, it is time to add the glass shards. Starting at the top of flowers, add glue, then shards to the petals. Let dry. Next add glue and shards to the bottom of the flower heads. Let dry. Work your way down the piece, so that the shards do not mix with another color of shards all ready added to the piece. Once glittering is complete and dry, trim your image. Ink edges of a tag and edges of the glittered piece. Glue image to tag. Add gems and typed words, eg. “Bloom”. Lastly attach colorful ribbons and yarn to the tag. This piece can be used as part of a tag book, a card, or just a beautiful piece to display.

Vintage Glass Shard colors used for this piece are Pink Coral #913, Rich Gold #914 and Peridot #909. I tried to pick colors that matched closely to the water-colors that I had used. Enjoy!
