Messy Flowers!



Hello, I've like the Tim Holtz Flower Jar sets for quite a while and last week I 'gave in' and after my first little play, so pleased I did.

This card uses a watery Oxide mop up, I've added white texture paste, which has stayed white - I sometimes find with Oxide inks they bleed into the white paste.  I scribbled distress markers over the stamped images before cutting out with the dies so there are no white edges.  The sentiment, which is from Visible Image was stamped and heat set with clear EP.  A bit 'tongue in cheek' I added a 'fallen' flower to match in with  the sentiment.

I think there will be a stamping and die cutting session soon so that I have lots of these little flowers nice and fresh for the perfect moment.

I am entering this at Penny Black and More - Make it Feminine

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

Each time I see this set of stamps and dies, I sigh and wonder why I never purchased them << Sigh!! What a stunning card, from the stencilled edge to those amazing words I adore everything about this Avril.
I may just have to give in with this set but i'm hanging on just a little longer.
Hug for a super week ahead Tracey xx

I love your delicate little flower stems in the jar, and the soft watery background is perfect to allow them to shine.
