This one is for Auntie Mary who is very poorly in hospital. I know you shouldnt have favourites but .... Anything for you Auntie Mary.
Whilst there was a break in the Creative Expressions weekend takeover i created this one by a crafty accident. I started with a completely different idea.... then i remembered Mr Lockwood saying "Life is too short to measure" so i changed to a random pattern.
I used only the Italian decorative frames and only the two smallest dies. I started with a piece of milk card and cut the smallest die, eight times. and mounted it on a slightly larger piece of pixie powdered paper in teals, blues and purples.
I added it to a larger mount of iris and milk and added gems stones to the corners. I cut out the two smallest dies for the centre topper on mounted it on to pixie powdered card to set it off.
This sentiment is so perfect for me right now. Tough times by 15 yr old Staffy Blade is very poorly and soo many people have made the extra effort to support me... this is for all of them.
I only used one striplet die, the quilted blocks and my favourite pixie powders, in blues, teal and silver.
The top layer i cut out an aperture and the second layer the detailed striplet section. I mounted this on deep blue and milk foundation card and finished it off with a navy blue ribbon and a butterfly from my stash.... and last but not least that wonderful sentiment.
I started with a piece of spearmint green card and cut an aperture using the Lattice and Lace striplet die. Using a slightly larger piece of card i cut out the same striplet without using the outside edge. I mounted these two layers together adding a piece of pixie powdered paper behind to accentuate the design.
I added these layers to another matt in periwinkle. I added this to another matt of milk and spearmint green.
I finished the design off my added pearls to the centres of the of the flowers and stamped a sentiment using black archival
