Got it finished last night, photographed and then today when I got home decided it needed some more bling... so here it is, in all it's finery.....
Sue ( aka Scrumplescrunch) a while back on how to use the Tim Holtz/Sizzex Tattered Floral dies and watercolour paper to make these and haven't had too much success till now... mainly I think I wasn't patient enough to let the petals dry. Basically, you smooched the petals after lightly spraying with water and the secret to success... LET THEN DRY OVERNIGHT!!!! It works. I had used some soft pinky watercolour paper ~ again after instructions from Sue.... edged with some red ink and once dry and put together... a touch of Stickles and some iridescent medium.
My background paper was the rest of the watercolour paper over-stamped with a variety of stamps... A script from Hero Arts, Dots and Cross stitch from a Bo Bunny set and the butterfly and trail from Kaisercraft. The base card was a pearlescent one that came with a magazine I got this week. I tied some lace into a big bow and made a little tag for the sentiment. I finally added a few pearls for the bling.
This is being entered into Our Creative Corner ~ Hosted by the lovely Sue this week with her Shabby Chic theme and also into the monthly challenge over at The Crafter's Cafe... butterflies and hand made flowers.
So there you go.... Sue, I hope it's Shabby Chic enough.... I certainly challenged myself with this....although I still feel I could have maybe done a bit more titivating!
Thanks for peeking in today... I appreciate all of you stopping by leaving lovely comments
