Hello. I hope this Friday finds you well.
I've made today's card to meet criteria of a number of challenges and enjoyed setting out a garden scene.
Paper: Maja Design with edges distress inked. Some stitching included along with my usual little sprinklings of Frantage
Die: Marianne Design (Ovals & Pop-Ups LR0371)
Embellishments - I made the birdhouse, birds and nest in silicone moulds using paper clay. The little house has then been treated to some paint and crackle to shabby it up. The birds and foliage have been inked with distress inks. Ivy chipboard is by Scrapiniec, again inked with distress ink and then coated with clear crackle. Metal elements are by Tim Holtz. Flowers and muslin from stash.
Stencils: Tim Holtz 'Flourish Stencil' filled with DecoArt white crackle. Two corners (behind rollbacks) are also stenciled using a 'Crafter's Workshop' stencil.
Thank-you so much for your visit,
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
