It's Your Time To Bloom

Welcome, today I have something a little different. I found a heart box when cleaning my room and thought it was perfect for decorating to house a gift using my A4 Stamp Time Flies #143, combined with my A6 Stamp, Doodled Blooms #140 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I am quite please with how this turned out. I began by adding texture to my box with Texture Paste and then adding layers of paint using Distress Paints.
I added a stamped clay piece for my focal image which adds a wonderful textural element to my design along with added texture.
I adore the texture around the sides of my box and I added darker tones to the edges with a Distress Crayon.
I added two flowers stamped onto Kraft card and shaded with pencil to the top of my box and then sentiment worked perfectly with the imagery. I also included some Tissue Tape around the edges for added interest.
I incorporated a touch of stencilling using Autour de Mwa's Lotza Dotz Stencil, adding only touches here and there so as not to over power the background.
Art Pebbles have also been included, again to add further interest to the design along with some delicate splatters of white paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
