Make My Monday #51

Good Morning all, welcome to a new week. 

So today is the start of a new challenge over at Make My Monday

The theme this time is


I decided to go with blue and white.  

A5 white card blank.  First i stamped the iris script image onto white card in blue ink and die cut with the leafy frame, keeping the die in place after embossing gently ink through it, so you get a blue frame around the image.  I then stamped the iris twice more and simply watercoloured in and cut out and decoupaged onto the main image.

I then cut a panel of white card bigger than the leafy frame and inked it up with the same blue inks, i then stamped the woodpanel on top to add interest. I added stickles frosted lace glitter to highlight the flower and around the frame edge. 

Close up of the flower, i layered up the flower head with glue gel. 

Items Used:
Chocolate Baroque 'Elegant Iris - UA5SP0318'
Stampin up 'Hardwood - 133035'
Spellbinders die 'Branching out - S6-006'
Archival ink - colbalt blue
Distress inks - tumbled glass, salty ocean & chipped sapphire

Please do pop over to join in and see the rest of the DT work.

Thank you for stopping by, i hope you all have a good week. Emma
