Here's the birthday card I made for my friend Francesca, she got it a little late as I forgot the date!
The background metal got a treatment of alcohol inks and black paint. The metal flower was die cut using Tim Holtz Tattered flowers die and shaped using a variety of TSS tools, then the flower and the industrial strip also had alcohol inks then I wanted to subdue the colour on the flower center and the strip so used Decoarts antiquing cream on them.
I've tried to shape the center of this flower like the small trumpet on Narcissus to represent spring flowers.
I'm going to be cheeky and enter this for the Vintage Journey Challenge Spring Flowers.
