Hi there folks, brrrrrrrrr its absolutely freezing cold here and after a couple of days rattling round on trains and waiting at draughty railway stations i'm chuffed to bits its the weekend! Before I put my feet up with a glass of wine and a box of maltesers (why do they taste so much nicer when they are in a box???) I just wanted to share my entry for Tim's Tattered Floral challenge.
I use my Tattered florals die so much, its so versatile. For my first project I coloured some Crinoline fabric from The Funkie Junkie Boutique with alcohol ink (Stream and Snow Cap) and die cut with tattered florals, layering up some die cut white netting. I added a button that I'd coloured with pebeo fantasy paint and some bakers twine in the centre. I added some myuki drops around the edge for some sparkle, this was a bit of a trauma as I'd used glossy accents to stick the layers together and stitching the beads in place was hard work so in the future I'll have to stitch the layers together. I die cut a circle of grungepaper to back the flower and added a couple of eyelets so that i could attached some beading to make a pretty tattered choker. I've used pearls, some teal crystals and some turquoise chips.
My second project is a very similar flower, coloured with eggplant and snowcap alcohol ink but this time I've added a brooch pin to the back and used a pretty little floral button for the centre.
Thanks for popping by, do pop over and have a look at the wonderful projects in the challenge if you've got a min .
Have a lovely evening
