VIOLETS

Sheena Douglass has some fabulous shows planned on Create and Craft on Saturday 25th May at 10am and 3pm where she will be launching some fabulous floral stamp sets.
My first sample uses the fabulous violets, I love this image, especially as I am a keen gardener.
I coloured the background with broken china and faded jeans Distress Ink and then stamped the background with the text stamp from Sheena's Ageing Beautifully set, this text is perfect for adding interest to your pieces and backgrounds. I then embossed the violets with white embossing powder.
I coloured the petals with Distress Inks. I absolutely love how you can see the text through the petals.
I added a fragment charm, adding one of the violets to the background, giving my piece a touch of dimension and further interest.

Sheena also has some fantastic CLEAR, yes CLEAR ROCK-A-BLOCKS that are also being lauched on the show. Make sure you tune in for all the details.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

This is really beautiful, Tracy. I love the text behind and the painted flowers. It's funny, I saw something like this on Pinterest and wanted to use it myself but couldn't work out how to do it, you've done a wonderful job. I love it.
Can't wait to see more
