Flowers for Mother's Day

 Good evening folks!!!
I’m back with another post tonight!!!!  Told you I had crafty time today!!!! LOL!!!
Today is opening day for a new challenge over at SweetStamps.
This weeks challenge is:
Flowers or For Mother’s Day

I created something other than a card for today’s challenge.  I decided to stamp and color on tile, Travertine tile to be exact.  The tile itself was very inexpensive and can be found and any local hardware store.  These not exactly the kind I sent hubby to get, but they worked and I love them!!!
The process was very tedious and difficult at first, but with some patients, they came together beautifully. 

Here is my sample project: 
Are those not cool or what?!?!?! 
I'm in the process of making more and will post more pictures as they near completion.
Now these can be used for anything!!  They have been sealed, but have to be wiped, since I placed cork at the bottom of the tile, so it won't scratch.

Both of these stamps are SweetStamps: Iris and Dahlia. 
I keep telling you that these stamps are big and I think that stamping on these 4x 4 tiles should give you a better perspective on their size. 

Then i got to thinking how would I wrap them.
So I went through my files on my Cameo and found this perfectly sized box. 

And here is a closer shot of these flowers that I made using Marianne CreaTables: Rosebud Makers

Same dies, I just tweaked them a little to make them look different.
