But as I was doing that, I saw that all my lovely summer flowers were going to be lost. The golds and pinks, the violets and reds would all fall and fade -- then be buried in white in just a short time.
I hate seeing color vanish.
So, I decided I'd save summer.
Then, I placed a linen dishtowel on the table and brought out the iron and waxed paper.
I sprinkled petals, leaves, buds and crayon shavings onto the waxed paper, covered it with another sheet of waxed paper and another linen dish towel.
I set the iron on a medium low setting and pressed.
It took about five minutes of carefully moving up and down, then around and around, until the sheet was flat.
After this, I cut off a few strips and cut again to make card-sized sheets.
I made three large sheets which will become probably 40 or so card-size panels.
The first thing I wanted to do was make a window card, but they can also be embossed or cut with dies.
Here is a finished project.
I am new to clear stamps and did not do a very good job with the sentiment, but you get the idea.
