Wild Grasses with Make My Monday

Make My Monday time again - and the floral theme continues.


Wild Grasses / Flowers

My DT piece is one that I struggled with ...I had the Woodware "Wild Grasses" stamp that I had in my mind that I had to use and for some reason no matter what I did I wasn't happy - I persevered with the stamp but ............I think my fellow DT members have done the challenge brief far more justice.

As well as the Woodware wild grasses stamp I have used Grungeboard shapes, gold embossing powder, UTEE, distressing inks and sequin waste.

The sentiment is from a Papermania set of stamps.

One thing I did like was the texture achieved with the UTEE on the grungeboard.

Hope you can play along with us guys at MMM - we love visiting all your blogs!

Suz - this is lovely - don't do yourself down. We all have different ideas of what things should look like and I had several goes before I was happy. I love the vintage feel of this.

You're being very hard on yourself Suzanne, I think this card is gorgeous! I love the panel of stamped images and the larger 3D grasses and wild flowers you added. The background is wonderful too. Vicky x
