MMM - Flowers & Leaves

My piece for Make My Monday's design team this week is a papier mache monogram letter.  "S" is for Suzanne - no I am not vain I just got the one letter to give it a try before I do my granddaughter's name, Lillie for her nursery!  Or it could be for "Spring" which is hopefully just round the corner! 


The nature theme continues and this week MMM is asking you to create a project incorporating "Flowers & Leaves".

The monogram has been covered with patterned napkins and my flowers and leaves have been made from gold metal which have been cut using Marianne Creatable  LR0168 Doily Round,  these have then been overstamped with a text and decorative "star" stamp in the centre.  The "dream" sentiment was stamped onto grunge paper which had been coloured with distress inks.



I have also made a card using patterned Mariposa papers which have been stamped over and then highlighted with white gel pen.  Scraps of sequin waste have been added.  The focal image has been stamped onto tissue paper and added to card which was coloured with a selection of distress inks.  Highlights were done with a white gel pen.

I am also entering these piece into the following challenges:-
 


Thanks for stopping by - I have been getting some lovely comments and these are much appreciated.  Suz ~x~

Hi Suz, finally made it here after an age and so glad I did as the letter and card are gorgeous.
The letter is simply stunning and love the gold flowers (I've just treated myself to that very die and it's great to see something made with it)
Hugs, Fliss xx
