Cinch and Go Flowers III Frame

Hello friends

I've been putting together some projects to display at the trade show 
in Birmingham which is coming around way too quickly!
I love the design of Cinch and Go Flowers III and I got rather carried away
with making flowers for cards so I decided to pop some into a frame.


As set out in Friday Die Day a week or so back (full details here)
I used watercolour card to die cut the flowers and leaves,
added distress inks, spritzed with water and then shaped.


The background is a piece of textured card from DCWV and I've used a script
stamp over the top.  I then clustered the flowers, creating a couple of buds
and assembled.  I chose to use stamens again - I think I'm going through
a 'stamen phase'!


Some close up pics.


The frame is from The Range, they have a great choice of box frames in
white and this weathered wood beige colour.


I was aiming for an Autumnal look but got heavy handed with pink...


Cinch and Go Flowers III is in stock and on the website here.

Today I'm heading up to Milton Keynes for a crafty day with my friends,
normally I take something alternative to die cutting but with deadlines looming
I think I'll be cranking that handle! 

Hope you are keeping warm, I know it is cold outside
by the sheer amount of cats (and dog) that want to sit on my lap all the time! 

Take care friends.

Hi Christine, I had to laugh at your write-up at the end, I have got a vision of doggies and pussies all vying for 'pole position' on your knee. I have had doggies and now a kitty and I know what they are like hahahaha.
I'm loving the Cinch and Go III flowers and also the script background provides a lovely backdrop. A really lovely piece of home decor.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
