TUESDAY TUTORIAL ~ TO SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL


Good evening!!

It is now!  Unfortunately there have been technical problems with my PC connection and this post was scheduled for 6am this morning!... it never happened!
So, here we go with our first tutorial



I started with an 8" square white card base and added a pretty pink paper, from my stash, to it leaving a narrow border.  I die cut the Umbria set from SW's Italian Collection, in ivory card.  I used all 3 dies but omitted using the centre one on my card.  I used the same coloured card for the flower at the top right as I already had the bottom left flower made and stored

I also die cut several pieces from the Spring Foliage ~ Finishing Touches Collection  and again using the Blossoming Branch from the same collection by SW in ivory card
I dusted two of the flowers with Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks by Ranger.  I added a rose centre to the larger pink flower and a flat back pearl to the smaller pink flower
I added ivory stamens to the bottom left flower 
I stamped the sentiment, from Phill Martin's Baroque Border Sentiments, again using Tattered Rose, onto ivory card (in hindsight I should have used a darker shade or even a coffee coloured ink) and die cut it using the middle pierced flag, then added mounting foam to the back and placed it within the left side of the main focal point.  I then added a pink dazzler onto the edge of the tag
The remaining ivory flower and leaves were arranged and adhered to the bottom left of the card plus a little metallic gold linx by Creative Expressions was also added to opposite corners

More tomorrow

Thank you for visiting

  1. Very nice, that die is so unusual especially the way you have positioned it on the card.
