Hand-made Flowers at Try it on Tuesday




Well it's time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this time we would love you to show us your Handmade flowers.

I have a box that is full of hoarded 'intentions' as I like to call it,  and after a little rummage, I found just what I was looking for.  The door hanger for the 'craft room'.  After painting it with Geeso, it was  dry brushed with PaperArtsey Fresco Mermaid paint, and then stamped with a crackle stamp using Tumble Glass DI .  I stamped the image, which is from Flonzcraft, and the Tim Holtz words onto tissue paper, my lady was coloured with Distress pens, fussy cut  and glued with a very watery pva, I wiped some Mermaid paint over the edges of the words with a baby wipe.    When this was dry, I gave it a coat of PA Satin Glaze.  My 'handmade' flowers were cut with a Joy die, the leaves are from the Tattered Floral strip die.
The rest of the DT have some  amazing creations to show, so please pop over to the main blog to take a peek.

I am entering this at:
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Bunny Zoe's - Something Blue
  Vintage Stamping Challenge - Anything from your Garden

Before I go, I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers, it's lovely to see you and I hope you continue to visit.

Have a great week,

Avril xx

This is beautiful. That is a gorgeous image and the sentiment is perfect.
I am sure you had fun as I've altered two this year and so enjoyed it as the possibilities are endless.
