Hello everyone! Sydney is experiencing a heat wave at the moment and conditions throughout Australia are extremely hot! Sadly with that it brings bushfires and also bushfire alerts. Today as I was trying to make my card it was too uncomfortable so I waited until the evening when things became more bearable.
The card I am sharing with you follows the challenge from The Shabby Tea Room. You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the colors in the photo and include a MONOGRAM as your focal point!
Before I started the flower I was working on the 'C'. I painted a layer of gesso onto it. Once dry I inked the edges and then painted it with white paint. Once this had dried I applied a thick coat of crackle medium.
My love affair with die cutting templates followed. I used a few to add to my main flower and then in the top right corner.
My last piece of texture was the burlap border. I love the fringing on it. With some left over linen, I frayed the edges and then layered it with the burlap.
