puzzle piece 6

this is the last piece with carol choosing the theme TEXTURES. So I began by painting my background blue and then applying some ferro through a crafters workshop mask, to make the flowery background then painted them with some acrylic paints
Once dry I added some viva d├ęcor clear crackle and then left to dry. The bird cage is a die cut which I coloured with distress inks, the chain is from a necklace extender piece. My bird is die cut from canvas and painted and the small flowers are dipped in UTEE

puzzle piece 5

VINTAGE is the theme of this piece chosen by me. The base is some T/H wax kraft paper crumpled up, flattened and stamped with a studio calico dress pattern stamp.
I then stitched and added some lace and burlap.
I wanted to use a vintage image so I printed one on to printable canvas and glued into my embellishment
The flowers are watercolour paper painted in distress paints, die cut and UTEE'd to give them a porcelain feel
