Hi everyone. Previously I made a layout for a frame with a black and white photo of my parents. I have three in total to make for my sisters. So this is the second one. Using mountboard I covered with DP. Using TH distress ink I inked the edges (Vintage photo)Using flowers I made with tea dyed and coloured paper (sprayed with Moon Shadow) The centre is mixed coloured seed beads. I added one and die cut some leaf sprays for behind the flower. On the DP the image of the timer was crying out to have some "sand" so I used some tiny seed beads for the sand. The frame is made with air dry clay and I applied some Creative expressions opal wax in two different colours. The hearts I die cut the used an embossing folder to give texture. I also used the wax on these .Thanks' for stopping by x

Box scene card

 Hi folks. I recently bought a John Next Door create a scene die. Hard work getting the hang of it, but good fun. Using crafters companion papers I created my MIL card for Christmas. The papers are so pretty i didn't need to add much. The poinsettia i made with foamiran and caviar beads .The Snow was die cut. I added berries and glossy accents areas (hard to see ) . On the inside I added some tiny snowballs. For the outside I again added glossy accents and I stamped the sentiment onto a spare piece of card the die cut and added foam squares to the back. I die cut small foam embellishment. The inside panel I attached a  pre cut  image that came with the DP.Thanks for stopping by xx
