Jumbo Tattered Flower

I'm back again with more handmade flowers for week two of Jenny's challenge over at Frilly and Funkie.  I decided to go really tattered this time, using canvas, vintage net and burlap.  I cut the largest flower layers with the Jumbo Tattered Florals XL die and the smaller ones were cut with the Tattered Florals Bigz die.  All the layers were colored with a mix of rubbing alcohol and Vermillion archival reinker.

The background for my tattered flower was created using a half sheet of Ranger Speciality Stamping Paper.  I mixed rubbing alcohol with Vermillion and Coffee archival inks.  A bit of stamping was done with Jet Black Archival Ink using Wendy Vecchi's Vintage Mesh and the ledger stamp from A Form of Art.  I also stenciled using the new Add a Stencil and Jet Black Archival.  The stamping is from the Seriously Art set.
The leaf branches were made using Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste to which I added a couple of drops of Bundled Sage reinker.  

I hope you will stop by Frilly and Funkie to see the wonderful handmade flowers the rest of the team is sharing.  And I hope you will make a few of your own and join our challenge!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Hope you're doing well. I am enjoying myself thoroughly as I see your creative mind hard at work on all your latest posts.
