A Valentine’s Lollipop Flower

Hello everyone!

Welcome back again. It’s still Kathrin, sharing my second piece of art today.

Christmas has passed and it was time to put away all those beautiful christmas stamps – I did that with a heavy heart. But then I thought about which holidays will be here next. It still felt too early for Easter so I thought of Valentine’s day. We don’t celebrate it here that big, but I like to give away a little something to show that I care about special people in my life. So, I came up with this lollipop flower:

The lollipop flower is a rosette based “flower” that gets glued to a paper straw. I think they look cute in flower bouquets or pots or even put on a nicely wrapped box of chocolats.

For my lollipop flower I used red, pink, white and black. There are still people saying pink and red don’t go together but I love this combination! I put a black doily underneath the red paper rosette and then put another doily from pink designer’s paper and some cheesecloth on top of that. Then I added a little shaker part – a round cut out pocket that is filled with pink sequins and some tiny red pearls.  You don’t see much of that but I like that there is something moving… For the main decoration I used the stampset German Lyrics V739. Both, the heart saying “always and forever” and the barcode stamp saying 100% love come in this set. I used red Distress Ink to color in the heart a bit. The barcode stamp was matted with red cardstock.

To the paper straw I attached a red bow, some pink lace and a little heart charm.

Thank you for stopping by today. I’m wishing all of you a happy time!

Hugs, Kathrin
