Today I was doing a bit of tidying up on my desk following the canvas project I made on yesterdays post. I love mopping up any extra ink after spritzing with spare card and book pages first so I have interesting backgrounds for future projects, but then also with wet wipes which I then leave to dry and chomp through with my dies to make flowers etc. Here as you can see I have done just that with my Tattered Florals die.
This is a simple but effective project that I did last year when the idea was featured in Craft Stamper magazine but on this project I used a couple of old linen napkins cut again with Tattered Florals and left to soak up ink puddles on the craft mat. Once dried I just grouped them together and sewed a button through the centre of each one. The mirror from a well known swedish furniture store was painted with blue acrylic paint. the strips of card was from my stash of Craft resist papers and I wrapped garden twine around the flowers for a bit more rustic texture. The little bows were made out of the same twine. Simple but effective.
Please leave a comment if you like any of my projects, I would love to hear from other crafty people, and I will read and reply to you all.
