playing with tattered lace and Tatty Twinkles

created using charisma frames 2, the largest die cutting 2 layers of cardstock that had been folded in the middle, the top layer folded of centre then I glued a single layer to the base of the fold. using different sizes for the top and bottem I then inked a mixed sentiment all over and distressed the edges with tim holtz in broken china.  From the charisma CD, I opened my craft studio, located the flowers I wanted and altered the colours to suit my project, then cut out using the die set that matches the flowers, then I stamped the Tatty Twinkles church and coloured in with Alcohol pens, the base of the easel inked later I cut in half, glued the back on and added 3d foam pads for the front piece added a bow and ribbon and finished with the flowers layered up to form the stop, which helps the easel card stay open, using another layer on the top I inked the same as the others but then added Tonic nuvo mousse pure platinum, which gives a lovely shine and draws your eye in to the focal point of the church, finished with flowers and then my partner showed it to his dad who then wanted to keep it, so of course I gave it to him.
