Art parts, twist wrap flowers, Radiant and Bright

 Hello folks.... I just couldn't wait to share this creation with you.  Not all the elements are available yet, but don't worry, as soon as they are I'll let you know.  I made this piece with the Sunday Stamper 'Green Tambourine' challenge in mind.
I took my solid Art Part square and did a bit of weaving with some soft green ribbon to create the background.  I stamped the frame (stamp available soon from Sam Poole's Creative Studios) and sprinkled on some gold and some black embossing powder before heat embossing.
I added a couple of the beautiful Victorian metal corners and set about making my bow.  I used a bow maker... tied the small bow first, then took it off the prongs, set the prongs wider apart and tied the second bow over the first.  I repeated the whole process to create the triple looped bow.  It would be much easier to have 3 sets of prongs and not have to remove the bow each time... but alas I just have 1 set.  I adhered the hanging loop and the bow itself with my hot melt glue gun. 
To create the flowers I used the fabulous Kraft Twistwrap, die cut it into spiral circles and twirled them up.  The taller flowers are also die cut, this time scalloped circles. I scrunched them up a bit and folded them to form the flowers you see here.  I glued them onto some wire so they could be placed in the arrangement.  I added some green and a bit of dark brown glitter to the flowers.  'She was bright', 'She was so radiant' was snipped out of a book, and, of course, the photo is of my beautiful daughter Isabelle. (Well... I am her Mama)
Ciao for now!

Oh boy Sandra! You really are teasing here. LOVE the look of that new frame and love what you have done with it. Thanks also for showing a use for the Kraft crinkle paper - it has been on C&C but not in 'finished project' form. That's when you can see the true potential. You are a star as ever. Hugs, Buttons x
