Vintage..

Good morning all....

Today I thought I would remind you about a Challenge over at the home of paper flowers.....http://sweetlilacflowers.blogspot.co.uk

Sweet Lilac are a family run business and they sell the most gorgeous paper flowers and leaves....they also have a blog Challenge that runs every month and the winner receives a box of their wonderful flowers...and even better the winner is chosen at random....

TheIr new theme is Vintage.....

And here is some inspiration for you...I hope you like it...

I started with three pieces of card and coloured and stamped them with Distress ink....this crackle stamp from Clarity is such a useful stamp...

Here are all three

Next I stamped the topper....now this is such a gorgeous stamp....and I really don't think it is used nearly enough....it is aptly named Friends...

Some matting and layering...and some lace..Also ..from Sweet Lilac...

This is the selection of flowers that I decided to have a play with...I do love the colour tones....

Also do remember that you can use Distress ink to change the colour of the flowers and leaves..

I also included one from a new range ....Gypsophila...( Gyps 002) A definite must have...

Another thing that I like to do is to cut into some of the flowers to make small leaves to add accents to the arrangements...

I use glue gel to attach the flowers to the card.

Some gems and hatpins and the design was finished...Here is a closer look...

I do hope you pop over to the blog to see the work by the design team and even better ...why not enter...after all someone has to win the hamper of flowers....you have until 14th of June as the new Challenge will start on the 15th June...

I am off now to tackle the garden....with the help of Tess and Eric.....

Wish me luck....

Have a good weekend , take care and pop back soon...
