The reveal

So here's my creation I teased you with a few weeks ago! I saw some of these topiary trees over on Splitcoaststampers and thought I'd have a go. All I used to make this was a plant pot -£1, wooden spoon with the spoon part sawed off - 39p, a polystyrene ball - 99p and a florists oasis to stick the spoon in which was about 99p for three. The stamps I used for the flowers were from the Simply Sent set and stamped in Pretty in Pink and Almost Apricot. I took me two nights to cut them all out and I dread to think how many I did. I also sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on each one before I cut them out - love that glitter, it's so fine. The leaves were cut from the Certainly Celery Designer paper.
I really enjoyed making this and it's now pride of place in my craft room.
Thanks for looking :)

Hi Jo
This is wonderful. I can only imagine how long it took to stamp and cut out all those flowers. But what a lovely item you have created.
Would love to say I'll have a go.....but don't think I have the patience lol.

This is beautiful! I found you at In Love with Stamping...I am a member too (passionstamper)! I love this topiary! I think I'll try one but I'm not as patient as you to cut out all those flowers, so maybe I'll try it with a floral punch instead :) You should be proud!
