Gayle here with something a little different - a Christmas bouquet! Loving these Christmas poinsettias :)
Alterations tattered poinsettia diecut cut out of white card, I coloured the flowers with either red (festive berries) or green (evergreen boughs) winter Distress Ink and sprayed them with water, dried and stamped with the tree stamp from the gorgeous Retro Holidays set. I inked the edges with the same colour and then dried and inked again in frayed burlap Distress with an ink blending tool.
Glossy Accents, then embellished with gold Stickles (you know I love these!)
I made a cone out of sheet music and inked the top edge with frayed burlap Distress, then stamped Merry Christmas from the Retro Holidays set onto a blank piece of paper which I distressed around the edges. I glued it to the cone with Glossy Accents, and left the edges free to curl.
Stamp Attic :) I will be visiting there tomorrow for a class with the very lovely Hels (look out, I may need some Melt Art supplies after this!)
