Today I am sharing another of my experiments from my "play day" on Friday. I have been itching to use these flowers made with the new Tim Holtz Mini Tattered Florals Thinlits Die - they are so TINY !!! So what better than an ATC to show them off.
I used a piece of Graphic 45 Time to Flourish paper for the background which has been gessoed, textured, spritzed and stamped! These two little tags from the Time to Flourish papers looked like seed packets.
I made the flowers from the usual cream cardstock and very gently inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink before rolling them up. These are the smallest and middle sized dies. I love them!
There is a new mixed media challenge called Anything But Cute and the first challenge is "A Vintage Garden". Again this is another DT which includes a number of friends and creators who I much admire so do hop on over and have a look as there is so much to inspire.
I have a vintage style greenhouse close to the house which is my sitterooterie and I love collecting little vintage bits and pieces to sit amongst the flowers and my favourites are packets of seeds which I keep in a little wooden box. I adore sweet pea seed packets but our garden is too exposed to grow them, but I do love looking at pictures on the packets and dreaming that they might actually grow!(I actually have a lot of silk flowers in and around the ivy in the greenhouse - now I have given my secret away!)
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you are having a great weekend.
