Just playing

I was sent these Whiff of joy stamps by the lovely Deb of Deb's Creations a while ago and decided it was time to have a play colouring them and practise some folds.
The paper is MME Bella Bella, with weathered wood distress crackle paint around the edge. The die cut is Marianne D Creatable and the ribbon is seam binding dyed with Tea dye distress ink.
  I got the gorgeous butterflies , the flower buds and the crinoline to make the flower from my lovely friend Linda,  The Funkie Junkie who has sourced lots of lovely lace, appliques and other gorgeous vintage bits and pieces and sells them in her etsy shop.    Linda also has several fab tutorials HERE and HERE on making the flowers on her blog.
I used weathered wood distress ink to dye the crinoline. I need another sized die to cut the crinoline to make a fuller flower i think! Doesn't help that I somehow squashed it all up before taking the pic! Arrrrggghh! Too lazy to take another pic though so you'll just have to pop over to Linda and see what they're sposed to look like! LMAO!

I'm entering this card in the Secret Crafter- Dust off your stash  ( had the paper for years and the metal flower base too!)

Your card is sensational, Viv! Those images are just adorable and so beautifully colored - love the blues, I also really like the die cuts and the burlap,

Great work with all those pretties from my shop! You are so sweet to give people a link as to where you got them. And don't worry about the crushed flower. Just pinch it in an upward direction and fluff it back up - LOL!

Thanks again for the shout out. I am running a grand opening blog candy with the prize of 3 $15 shopping sprees in my new store.
