Floral Hanging

Although I thought I was going to make a card, this project developed into a wall hanging. There are three challenges represented in this work. The Grungy Monday challenge is grungeboard or grungepaper. The Ink on my Fingers Sunday challenge is to build your own flower embellishment. At Creative Belli the challenge is custom made bellies.

Behind this dimensional work is a Heartfelt Creation stamp. I just dimensionalized it. The trellis is made from grungepaper and stained with Walnut distress stain. The nails are made using a silver Viva Decor paint pen. The leaves are die cut using a Spellbinders die. The roses were made using a Sizzix die. Everything was adhered to a piece of cardstock which had been stamped with the stamp and sprayed with forever violet Perfect Pearl Mist and then edged with wild honey and victorian velvet distress inks. Once I had the image panel complete, I realized that it was so dimensional that it really didn't make a good card. So I attached the image panel to a piece of burlap and used the cute hanger to hang it.
