ARTSY FLORAL CARD

Time for this weeks DT creation for Creative Expressions using the fabulous Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Classics 4 Stamp Set.
The backdrop of my card has been created with Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean Distress Ink, applied to a Non-Stick Craft Sheet and spirtzed with water.
I've added a dimensional flower using the Heartfelt Delicate Asters, adding twine behind the flower for further interest along with a button to the centre.
Background stamping has been added using the stamp from the Classics 4 Stamp Set giving tone on tone stamping and then adding a further layer of interest with stamping in Black Archival Ink. I have also added a Victorian Metal Corner Embellishment for added dimension. I have coloured the corner with a touch of Pearl Moon Gilding Wax.
To complete I have added 'Make A Wish' using the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings stamp set along with ART using Signmaker Alpha Parts.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
