Garden Patch challenge at Scrapbook Stamp Society

Hi there folks, I'm running late with this post, I've just had one of those days so i'll keep it quick and go and put my feet up with a glass of falling down water lol. There's a brand new challenge at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge at the theme is 'Garden Patch'. I've used this gorgeous image called 'Elf Flower' by Mogan Fitzsimons for my project.

I'd been playing around making tissue paper flowers so i decided to make a little wall hanging for my DT project. I used a Decorplate from Caroline's and gave it a crackle background with emulsion paint and pva glue. I'd already coloured the image with promarkers and decoupaged it so that the gorgeous elf is peeping out from the floral frame. I attached it to the decorplate and added my flowers around the edge, unfortunately i ran out of glue so i'll have to have a trip to the shop in the morning. Eeek how on earth did I run out of glue?? I bet i'll find loads when  I've bought some lol.

The flowers were made using white tissue paper (I always save tissue paper from packaging) die cut with tattered florals die and then coloured with glimmer mists. I scrunched them while wet and left them to dry before layering them up with a dot of glue, more glue in the centres to add assorted colours of seed beads.

I'm also entering this project in the following challenges:
Cupcake Craftroom: spring bouquet
Joanna Sheen Challenge: spring or Easter
Just Hannah: something to hang
Scrapbook Sisters: Spring flowers
Wags'n'Whiskers: spring break

Don't forget to check out all the gorgeous images at Scrapbook Stamp Society, they are scrummy!!

Hope you're having a good weekend
