Hi All!

Thanks for calling into my blog.  I created it to showcase and enter competitions so here goes.  I intended entering this in to the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Challenge.  But heyho, it is too late!

I made this wreath after attending a fabulous workshop with Karen Hayselden. I loved the workshop and created this wreath the next day.

I used Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap, which I PVAed on to a sheet of paper.  I then painted and sprayed it and used Distress Ink pads. After drying, some of it lifted from the paper, nevermind, I die cut it using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die and a butterfly die.  Then built the blooms and the butterflies.  The blooms have pearls in the centre.  The butterflies bodies are made of  jewellery wire, folded in 2, with a black bead, then wrapped with cord from my stash, with a larger bead for the head.  The antenna are the wire with a very small bead, wrapped with the end of the wire.  Because some of the Tisssue wrap lifted from the paper it gives a delicate look to the blooms and butterflies.

Hope you like it!
