At the ATS Challenge this week they want us to use newspaper or a book somewhere somehow in our creations ................well my sweet son Reid bought me a book for Christmas , a paper back novel "A Sovereign for a song" by Annie Wilkinson, now Annie may be a brilliant author and the book may be a great read but I don't much like love stories and I never have time to read as I'm always crafting, but not wanting to seem ungrateful or hurt Reid's feelings I popped it on the shelf with all intention of reading it one day.
Then today when I was looking for something to make this card for this challenge I remembered the book and checked with Reid if it was ok for me to use it to cut flowers he thought it was a great idea (he laughed at me ...but knows what a crafty wacky Mum I am !!)
So I die cut the flowers with a Sizzix die and used distress ink on the edges then spritz them with Glimmer mist scrunched them up , lightly unscrunched them and joined them together with a small pink Prima flower and a white glittered Doodlebug design brad and let them dry under the gentle heat from my desk lamp and I was very pleased with the result.
The stamps I used here are from CC Designs it's Emma which I masked to look like she is sitting on the tree stump both stamps are from the spring kit, I coloured them with Copic markers.
I distressed the edge of the image with Tim Holtz Distress ink and distressing tool then stitched them on my sewing machine , then I zig zag stitched the edge of the card without any cotton in the machine to give the edge a little detail
Hope you like it , have a great weekend
