I was in the mood for something different last night so this is what I came up with. I painted the tray and added some background papers and ricrac edging.
I made a couple of flowers using our new floral craft embossing tools and a couple of circle punches (1" and 1.5"). The edges were inked with Crushed Olive Distress Ink and added to the frame with silicone glue. I love the big blousey blossom!
Under the big flower is an old ribbon reel that has a tree charm tied on with twine.
I have hidden a small wooden flower behind the bird and birdcage. I used pre-embossed core'dinations card stock to cut these and sanded them lightly before inking with more crushed olive.
I love the words on the paper (find the extraordinary in ordinary days) and the 'hope' plaque seemed just right for the bottom corner.
Hope you like it. TTFN Jude xx
