 Hello everyone,

Well, the weekend is over, I'm not sure what I got up in my Craftroom, but I know I'm well ahead with DT work, so that is good, then it will be a surprise for me when their turn to post comes up..I seem to have a.. " Oh, that's right I made this moment "..

Today I was going to pop up another Nautical as I made quite a few and still have some to share, but went with flowers instead..

and it all started with this paper that I had inked up
or smooshed in ink, but I know I made it and it was sitting up on my bench looking at me..

So, I die cut it with a rose die that has the skeletal bit to layer on, and it is so
delicate and tricky and I get quite gluey..

Then I needed buds of sorts, so cut these from an Altenew set..BUT..
I didn't cut all the layers,just the bottom bit, then used all the off cuts and
some of the top layering bits as I didn't want them busy..

but I did cut and layer the leaves..

Made the spray on my bench..

Then started gluing onto my card..

and came out nearly the same, just stretched it a bit to fit..

a simple gold embossed on black sentiment...


So, there you go..
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow..

Your pretty smooshed backgrounds worked lovely for these flowers and a great idea to use the gold with it, gives them an elegant feel to it, very pretty arranging of them!
