April 2014 Tag

It's me again! two posts in a week - whoo hoo - told you my mojo had returned!

I have decided to play along with Tims April 2014 tag and here is my take:

Background was done with Scattered Straw paint:

and I used Broken China paint and Vintage Photo ink on the hexagon grungepaper.  I do have the one Tim used but decided to go with hexagons instead.  The flowers, again although I do have the pinecone die (as you can see from the leaves), I decided to use 3d tattered flowers instead which I made up of three diecuts cut into five pieces and then twiddled around a pokey tool to make 3d flowers - I inked them with Broken China and Spiced Marmalade and stamped each piece with a script stamp before twiddling.  To finish them off I dipped them in my melt pot so they are lovely and shiny.

I did the ribbon the same as Tim but didn't like it wrapped around the bottom as my flowers are a lot bigger than the pinecone ones so I used it as the topper string instead.  To finish I used a Tim banner inked with Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo and a butterfly inked the same, stamped with a script and finished with twine and rock candy stickles.

All tissue tape and papers are Tims too.

Thanks for looking - Enjoying Life in Sunny Solihull
