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!
