Natures Beautuy


It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight the theme is 'Natures Beauty'
As I love to see flowers, this was my choice, but you could have trees, leaves, scenes, the choice is endless.

I've used the cone flower from Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps on a blended Oxide background of Iced Spruce, Bundled Sage and Wild Honey.  I've used embossing  paste through a Wendy Vecchi stencil, and sprinkled on White EP, which was heat set when dry.   The stems were stamped onto the card base and a few extra leaves added and highlighted with a white gel pen.  Two of the flower heads were added with foam pads.  The sentiment is from PaperArtsey (Jofy)

The rest of the team have some fabulous inspiration for you so please head over to the main blog where you will also find the challenge details.

I've scheduled this post as we're having a short break in Budapest, hopefully the internet will be good and I can catch up as I put my feet up after a days sightseeing.

Thanks for calling in.
