No work today so it's a very welcome extra day to craft. Although the weather is much better here, I haven't been able to break the pull of my craft desk . . . I think that it's probably my favourite place to be (apart from my bed, ha, ha !)
I thought I would share the topper that I made on Saturday with you.
It's Tilda with clover, I coloured the image some time ago now and can't remember what colours I used.
The background paper is K&Co from their Bestsellers stack. The lilac paper is from the Papermania "Henbury Lane" collection. I've used a Martha Stewart punch to create the lace effect on the plain lilac card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stems are finished with real Swarovski crystal beads. The photo doesn't really do these justice . . . they are very sparkly in 'real life'. The organza ribbon is from my local market, best market in Britain (in my opinion), there's not a lot you can't get there!!
Finally the topper is finished with some green cabochon gems which were a bargain buy from Fred Aldous, another great local source of crafting bits and pieces.
Well that's how I spent my Saturday . . . now to show you how I have spent this morning, ha, ha !!
