The base is a paper mache frame from The Craft Barn, I created a crackle background with green and pale pink Eco green paints and PVA blue and sloshed some gold acrylic paint around the edges. I added even more crackle with a creative expressions crackle stamp and gold EP. I brayered a little background scene using big'n'Juicy inks and some gorgeous little tree stamps from Chocolate Baroque 'Teeny Weeny Meadow'. The sentiment is a stamp from Paper Artsy. I've had this stamp for years and I use it again and again.
The large flower is also stamped with a Chocolate Baroque stamp, this time from Diamante Delights, its embossed with gold EP and painted with twinkling H2os.
I added some ribbon for a a hanger as I wanted to attached my beaded flowers. I LOVE seed bead work but haven't done any for ages and i've come to the conclusion I need new specs lol.
The large rose is made with size 11 seed beads in netting stitch and the tiny tulips are again made with Size 11s but this time using herringbone stitch. I added some myuki drops for the centres.
