TioT GDT: Make A Wish


I am delighted to be GDT today at Try It On Tuesday

The theme at TioT this time is Texture and I made my card with heaps of texture derived from layering die cuts and smooshing inks.  

The background is a lacy die-cut (Intricate Lace 664181 Sizzix), smooshed in Antique Linen ink and laid over the top of card which was smooshed, dipped and dabbed in Victorian Velvet ink.

The flowers are layering dies (Brushstroke Flowers #1 665209 Sizzix) which I cut from white card then coloured with inks in various shades of light yellow and pink, I inked the edges of the pieces with Vintage Photo ink and added white paint splatters once they were assembled.

I also added some beautiful pink velvet ribbon trim and placed some sisal fibres beneath the flowers. The flowers are popped on foam tape to lift them from the card and only the centre is adhered so that I could curl and shape the petals to give a more natural look.

Here are some of the products I used:

Thank you to Jo at TioT for inviting me to be GDT.

That's all for now.
