AVJ #4

Over at A Vintage Journey their theme is Spring Flowers
I finally felt inspired to play with some of my new goodies and this is what I made.

I used the Sizzix accordion flip 3D die to create the base, Papers are from the 'wallflower pad' edged with scattered straw DI. I also stamped the white edges of the inner pieces with the floral rosette type stamp from the 'nature walk' set.

The flowers are the smallest from the tattered florals die, cut in 2 colours and layered up with scattered straw distress stickle centres, and a smidge of victorian velvet DI.

The leaves are from the 'spring greenery' strip die and splodged with some mowed lawn DP.
The letters are from the 'block talk alpha' bigz XL die.


The last thing I added {which in hindsight should of been done much earlier} was to add some texture with grunge paste through a mini chicken wire stencil.

And job done, Hope you like.. This will be winging it's way to a special someone soon.

Stay Inky
