I decided to make a framed collage so I up-cycled a box that I had as the frame. The papers used are from Craftwork Cards and I have used diecuts to make the flowers.
I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix tattered flowers die and coloured some old book pages with Dylusions spray inks in fresh lime and cut grass drying with the heat gun. The flowers were then layered and stuck together with PVA glue. Each one has a pink Stickles centre.
The spotty foiled swirls were also diecut using the TH elegant flourished die. The gold corrugated liner was backed with some stripy paper and stamped with a music stamp in vintage sepia Versafine ink and a piece of white lace adhered with PVA glue as shown.
Some swirls were added to the base and the flowers stuck in place with glue dots. The name plate was stamped in Memento onyx black on white card with a Crafty Individuals stamp and this was swooshed over with an Impress chartreuse inkpad before trimming out and mounting as shown. It was edged with dark green alcohol ink pen.
Final touches were to add two more swirls at the front and some Stickles in pink. This one fits the bill for the City Crafter Challenge blog No.199 'Flowers and Lace'.
