mother, artist, inventor {DT work for heartfelt creation}

hello scrappy friends!

it's HEARTFELT CREATIONS wednesday {a very special wednesday as well - it is a LEAP day today} again and i've got a brand new project to share with you.

"mother, artist, inventor"

heartfelt creations products used on this project: 

to create the pattern on the purple paper i used the big ornament from the HC layered elegant swirl die as a mask with ranger "tea dye" distress ink.

framing the picture - i punched two purple and two green stripes with martha stewart “doily” edge punch and “garden gate trim” deep edge punches. using HC decorative butterfly / border die and cuttlebug i cut the third border and coloured it with ranger “vintage photo” distress ink. with HC perfect petals die i cut the two green corners and placed them around my picture as well. the two big flourishes with leaves {HC belle rose die} are coloured with copic ciao brown marker and the leaves are distressed with tim holtz' crackle paint clear rock candy.

i stamped some leaves with HC leaf medley set, cut them out, embossed and distressed them. using Couture Creations embossing folder i embossed a big timepiece image on a creme cardstock, distressed it with "tea dye" distress ink, cut the big gear wheel and a few small ones out and puzzled all the elements around the picture.

the flowers – i stamped different sizes posies with HC posy patch flowers set on a creme cardstock, die cut them with HC posy patch die, layered the blossoms, distress them and coloured them with glimmer mist. for a step by step tutorial on how to create the distressed flowers, click HERE.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!
