Fact or Fiction designer paper matched beautifully with the Ranger distress paint I used on the sides. Used Big shot to cut out layered flowers. After I cut my flowers, I spritz them with water and crunch them into a ball and allow to dry. Carefully open them up and layer them. Used some flat back pearls in the centers. Dabbed distress stickles on the petals to glam them up. I hand cut the leaves-I don't have a die for those.
Layers: doily, swirl cut from cricut cartridge, flowers. Sentiment from Stampin Up was punched from fancy border punch.
The sides were gesso'd, then I used barn red distress paint dabber. I spritzed water on top to activate the paint. Did more dabbing with a sea sponge. While it was wet, I sprinkled sea salt on it and allowed to dry overnight. (after I rubbed the salt off) I then stamped Paper Artsy stamp using purple and green pigment ink. Allowed to dry. What you end up with is a cool texture that is unique and interesting. I attached round knobs for the feet on the bottom.
Going to make a cool gift for someone -or maybe I'll keep it for myself!
Thanks for joining me today. Have a GREAT Friday!!
