Nature Deco Pages

The deco book swap at KCUK is well under way and I'd like to share with you the two pages that I made for Wendy, the theme of her book is Nature In All It's Glory.

I used one of my Gelli prints for the background and used watering can Archival ink for all the stamping apart from some black script on the background. I coloured some card with distress ink and stamped the main image and sentiment. I coloured the butterflies with picked raspberry distress ink and used some black ink on the edges. I stamped the butterflies and diecut them and added some pink gems.

I used the following stamps.
Stampers Anonymous for the main image.
Darkroom Door for the sentiment.
I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch that comes with some stamps.

For this page I used a Gelli background. I stamped the flowers onto the background with coffee Archival ink and used a clear glaze pen on the centres. I stamped the main image and coloured the flower with distress ink. The single flowers were stamped onto white card and coloured with distress ink, I used the clear glaze pen on the centres. I adhered the image and sentiment to the page, then I cut out the flowers and adhered them and some die cut leaves to the page.

I used
Crafty Individuals stamps for the flower image and flowers.
PaperArtsy for the sentiment.
Tattered Lace for the die cut leaves.

I would like the enter the flower page into the
Crafty Individuals Natures Beauty Challenge.
