Compendium of Curiosities Challenge week 10

Not been able to join the last couple of weeks of these due to being Stateside - however last weeks challenge which is Tissue Wrap Flowers on page 37 of T!ms A Compendium of Curiosities vol 2, which is also sponsored by The Funkie Junkie has been extended a further week so I have found some time this afternoon to put this together:

Background is done with Picket Fence, Bundled Sage and Faded Jeans distress stains.  The stamps are from T!ms Nature Collection and Indigo Blu's Wild Meadow sets and are inked with Peeled Paint distress ink.  The tree and bird are from T!ms Bird on a branch die inked with Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade.  The tissue flowers are white tissue stamped with a script stamp in either Wild Honey or Spiced Marmalade - they are all done with 1" tissue squares.  Inked the edges of the whole piece with Vintage Photo and popped a bling eye on the bird to finish. 

All in all a fun afternoon!  Also managed to finish my huge Dr Seuss quilt today but need to wait for OH to get home to hold it up to photograph it as its far too big for the children even if I got them to precariously balance over the banister!

Thanks for looking - Feeling Like I have Achieved Something from Solihull
