Beauty Of Love

Today I am showcasing the fabulous Couture Creations 3-in-1 Floral Collection from Creative Expressions.

I have actually used the embossing folder from the collection along with one of the ornate dies.
White Foundations Card has been coloured with Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress inks, simply applying the inks to a Non-Stick Craft Sheet, spritzing with water and mopping up the beads of ink with the card.
I have highlighted the embossed frame with Pewter Gilding Wax to highlight the detail and I have then added the face from Tim Holtz Classics 5 Stamp Set, stamping with Black Archival Ink. I have then die cut the ornate embellishment that coordinates with the bottom of the frame, coloured with Distress Inks and added touches of Gilding Wax.
I created a flower by simply cutting a long strip of card, colouring with Distress Inks and snipping into the strip and then rolling to form the flower. I have also included some natural twine behind.
Background stamping has also been added using the background stamp from Tim Holtz Classics 4 Stamp Set using Salty Ocean Distress Ink to give a tone on tone feel. I have added the sentiment which is from the 3-in-1 set to complete my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Tracy x x
