Tattered Florals



Morning everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. I'm entering my floral canvas into the Cuttlebug Challenge this week where the theme is Mum or someone special and Creative Card Crew, April Showers bring May flowers. I've used the back of the canvas and glittered the inside with Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels for some sparkle and arranged the flowers made with TH Tattered Floral dies on the frame edge. The canvas is painted with two colours of acrylic paint and stamped with a sentiment and crackle stamps from KatzelKraft stamps. The flower is inked with Barn Door distress ink, overstamped with a music stamp from Crafty Individuals, glittered with Platinum Stickles and I've added a few dots of glossy accents for rain or dew drops. Enjoy your Saturday and thanks as always for your lovely comments.

Chris, this is absolutely stunning! The colour is gorgeous, but I love the music stamped over the top. The colour balance between the frame and flowers is just perfect to make them pop right out. Wonderful work, Judith x

Hi Chris I can even smell the beautiful perfume from the rose it looks amazing I just love it. The leaf punch is it a Martha Stewart punch and if so which one is it? I'm trying to buy one over here but it's best to see what most people are using?
Take so much and will email soon I've had a busy week last week and this week is worse.
Hugs
