My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

TH Tattered Floral Challenge - II

I was already working on this LO when the TH Challenge was set, so I just had to add some tattered florals to it. Especially so as the subject of the photos was our visit to the National Trust property, Standen House and its beautiful gardens back in the height of our UK Summer! Yes we DID have at least one sunny day, these photos are testament to that!

Have to say that Tim's dies work just as well with the more "grunge" type projects, like in my other entry to this challenge,  as well as for the more "gentile" type projects like this one.

I cut my florals from both a patterned paper and some Kraft Co-ordinations. I embossed and sanded the latter with Swiss dots. I used a mixture of round, heart, flower and mini button brads for the flowers centers.

I used my WordPlay and Typeset dies for the wording and shadowed the former like I learnt in Tim's Christmas Tags back in 2011! Still 6 months behind in my scrapping, it will probably be March before I start on September too. Oh well, onward and upward.
