Paper Artsy Green Shrine
Oooh, bit of a rush today as I wanted to make this for this week's Paper Artsy challenge. This week's guest has been Helen Chilton. Have I mentioned before that I have been following Helen since I first started stamping and she is a complete heroine of mine? Yes, I think I might have said it a few times! She made a lovely wooden shrine in greeny shades and I really enjoyed the last one I made, so I thought I would make another, using Lynne Perella stamps still kindly on loan from Petra (she is bound to come back and claim them soon, isn't she?!).
The images are on crackly tissue, the paint is fresco finish (is there any other?), and the flowers are PA metal sheets which I have popped onto grunge to enable me to curl the petals, then a harlequin embossing folder, then Little Black Dress, then Claret, then some Treasure Gold. I've been pondering for some time what to do as my entry for Tim's Tattered Florals Challenge and I thought I would enter this. I use this die more than any other, and I do love Bigz dies because they cut through metal and grunge so easily. I just used the smallest size this time. I finished off the flowers with some of the new Pearl Glue in the centre from Creative Expressions.
Not a very good photo so I might replace it if the light improves........
