BLESSINGS

Time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing the FLOWER MARKET plate.
I have used the vintage cabinet card die and the mini cabinet die to cut out the centre.  I have added two layers to give more dimension and to frame my stamped floral images.
My flowers have been stamped and embossed with white embossing powder and then the same image stamped with Archival Ink adding more layers of interest.  I have added white highlights to the flowers in the background with a gel pen. I have stamped the butterfly and coloured with broken china ink and added FLY to jump rings and added to the butterflies body. For more dimension I have cut the mini tattered florals from an old book and coloured with broken china ink, adding buttons to the centre.
I have stamped the sentiment with Archival Ink, cut out, sponged the edges with vintage photo and added to the top centre of my aperture.

Don't forget this months REFERRAL THEME over at the Artistic Oupost HERE. Our theme is TRAVEL this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
