Rustic Flowers again ...

Click to Enlarge
Hi Everybody,

I have sprayed up another batch of these lovely Rustic flowers and  colored the ribbon  to match with  the  Isopropyl  and Spectrum Noir refills again

The flowers start life in white and then end up in these beautiful shades  and they are so pretty in real life.

I have used the Spanish Collection - Granada  set again and created the base from the largest die in the Seville set.

The colored card is simply Kraft Card layered with white Linen card from the Papermill Direct   and this is the place I get most of my card from.

It is a 270 gsm and such good quality.  It creates my bases and the layers that I like to add ... and often creates some flowers too.

But for this card the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

The flourish in La Creme is from Want2Scrap  and is added to the sentiment label.

So a little deviation from the pretty pastel colors ... but I will be back to normal again next week.

In the meantime the tomorrows  Friday Freebie is staying with the darker colors  for those that like that look

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Beautiful, I really need to get more crafty supplies lol what would you say is the best die for creating your own flowers or the best punch, do you make your own at times and are they relatively easy to do?
