Is it serendipity or what? Just this morning I saw that Tim has a great giveaway on his blog. He wants to know how we all distress (use the distress inks), and one way to win is to create something and send him a photo. I used distress inks all over my piece, so sent him this photo in a hurry:
It's a 4x" canvas, which was first inked with rusty hinge and crushed olive. Some flourishes were added (some die cut, some stenciled on), and some perfect pearls brushed on in spots.
The flower was cut from Tim's tattered floral die (it's grungepaper), inked with wild honey and forest moss, then overstamped with french script in black soot. A Maya Road stick pin is in the center.
I attached the rose to the canvas by nestling it in the niche on the back of an even smaller canvas then gluing that onto the larger canvas.
The flourishes around the rose were also cut from the flourish die....for these I glued silk fabric onto grungepaper. I added a bit of gold tulle around the flower.
I made a little crystal and pearl danglie and hung it from the bottom of the smaller canvas with a tiny eye screw.
Here is a side view, so you can see the dimensionality (and the ruler ribbon I wrapped all around the canvas -- and further distressed with some forest moss distress ink).
And speaking of giveaways......I just noticed that I have 94 followers. Amazing! Well, just need six more to have a nice neat even 100. If I should reach that magic number any time soon, I have a really cool giveaway in mind. Do you read this blog but are not a follower? No pressure, but.....giveaway....really cool one....I only need SIX more
victims followers.....I'm just sayin'.......
