Punky flowers in a vase

Good morning my lovelies, a very quick post from me as I've got another early start at work, we're up to our ears in workmen so its total chaos, thank goodness I've got next week off as I'm in desperate need of a crafty fix lol. My project today is a little canvas with a couple of the gorgeous new 'Punky Flowers' from Chocolate Baroque in a little vase

I've used lots of different pink and purple inks to create the background and the frame, which is also embossed with my cuttlebug. I created the 'vase' with the top of an old lipstick, covered in string and painted with gesso and purple ink. I've embossed the flowers in gold and added a dew drop to their centres and popped them on some curled wire stems. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the gold button from my stash.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Creative Belli: flowers
Incy Wincy: metal mania
Loves Rubber Stamps: anything but a card

Before I dash off to work, don't forget to watch Tom and Hazel on Create and Craft today with the new SplodgeAway masks! I'm recording it to watch after work, can't wait as the new masks are fab!!
Thanks for popping by today, 
Claire xx
