Time to reveal!!!!!!

Wow its the 7Th of July and you know what this means its time to uncover the challenge laid on the table from Vicki Chrisman,make sure you hop over to Vicki`s and see what the others have created

I just love this sort of challenge and can honestly say I had an idea in my head and the mojo just totally erupted on this challenge I have used so many techniques in the making of this WALL HANGING I had the envelope with my pieces and then could only play with plain card stocks

we could use ink,stamps other mediums etc I really love playing this and had so much fun

Right we better get listing then I started using World win card stock DS - color Raspberry and then I cut it to 10 x12 Now the glimmer mist stencils out ,glimmer mist- tattered Rose and bubble gum pink armed ready and sprayed a fine misting,then thought it needed a bit of a pattern the good old bleach came out and I drizzles and dragged and pushed my paintbrush[fine] around the get movement I craved.

Now going onto my image from crafty secret heart warming vintage image from the new journal booklet

a "um "and a "R,"right I though booklet ran through my head so out came a neutral card stock cut into 4 x 4 and made 4 pieces and then folded in middle ,damped it all down with my sprayer ,screwed it ,bashed it,twisted it and started curling and ripping corners and edges to get what I wanted,now a quick splat of modge podge to hold edges whilst it all dried out Once dry I then gave it a coating of tattered rose and Coffee shop Glimmer mist then when dried I then gave it all 2 good coats of modge podge gloss and left to dry,mounted the Craft secrets image in the middle and the pieces of text from the journal piece , happy so far,needs a mount so I went for Bazzill card stock cut to shape and machine stitched in red leaves around the shape. The pattern paper from my pack I cut into triangle`s and mounted on double sided pads to the top of the page giving it a banner look,corrugated a piece through my ribber and placed this to the bottom. Now the heart from my pack I inked green embossed with some UTE[ultra thick embossing powder] Not totally happy decided I would use my glue pad and add some cerise pearl-ex on to it more UTE and I think finally 3 coats later I was happy with the result,3 buttons now
I wanted some thread so in my pack I had a green ribbon and upon playing noticed the black thread would pull so I carefully pulled 2 lengths out of it and thread through the buttons.My flowers red and white had to be changed [white one] inked and embossed green and anchored with the little heart grommet in the pack,voila this is the end result ,please make sure you go check the other participants out at Vicki`s blog oh and get a glimpse of the new Tattered angels stuff over here to[not for the faint hearted lol!!]its sure to melt your plastic when its released thats for sure!!!!!!! and don`t blame me!!!!

VICKI- thanks for having me play! and having so much fun again..........

Oh, Rose, I think that if someone had shown me this creation of yours without telling me who did it, I would know it was you! Why? Because, first of all, you outdo anyone I have seen who does vintage. Secondly, I can "see" your style all over it and lastly, only you can take the ordinary and make so wonderfully extraordinary. I love it, Rose!
