Take a Word - BOTANICAL

I have been looking in awe at the entries on the "Take a Word" challenge blog for a couple of weeks now and organised myself to join in this week.  I was so miffed I did not get chance to join in with last week's Butterfly theme - one of my favourite things along with anything nature/flowers etc so I really could not miss this week!  Botanical.
I primed my card with white gesso is a choppy haphazard style, wiped over using a sponge with distress inks tumbled glass and bundled sage.  Text from my old faithful butterfly guide, stencilled flower with more tumbled glass and bundled sage.  The main focal was was stamped with timer brown Stazon onto tissue paper and then adhered with pva glue.  Words are from an Elusive Images plate and stamped with Stazon.


When I get home from work this evening I am going to put my feet and take a look at the other entries.  Thanks for taking the time to look.

Lovely page; the blue is absolutely a divine and unexpected choice for a botanical. I think this would make beautiful notecards or even a large print!
