Floral Bouquet......

.......for 100 Proof Press weekly DT piece created using the Flower Face stamp.
I created the background using Distress Stains broken china and wild honey and spritzed with water.  I used Old Script to add text to the background in coffee archival ink.
I created the jar using the Inspiration Jars from The Artistic Stamper which I stamped onto acetate and coloured with Alcohol Ink cloudy blue, again adding old script to the jar. I coloured a second piece of glossy card with Distress Stain wild honey and stamped my flowers onto the coloured background with coffee archival ink. Each flower was then cut out and added to my card along with green twine for the stems.
I also added one of the flowers as a dangle on my jar which I stamped onto shrink plastic and added to the jar with a jump ring. I also added a circular fragment, again coloured with alcohol ink and stamped part of the floral image onto the fragment. To complete, I added a birthday sentiment and a bee charm.

I would also like to enter this piece for the Grungy Monday challenge which this week is to used Tim's alcohol ink technique HERE, along with the challenge over at Happy Daze where the challenge is Dangly Things and I have added a dangly floral from my jar so hope this counts.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the weekend.  Tracy x x
