Decorative Ivy

Hello my crafting friends, a bit late in posting but better late than never right? I hope you are all well and busy crafting away, I managed a little play time yesterday which is why I am posting this lol!

I had been playing with spraying some backgrounds of various colours with diluted Aquatints and this was one of them.

I die cut and embossed my card base using Spellbinders Decorative Curved Square out of White Card and used this as the whole card.

Using one of the coloured panels I die cut the middle piece of the decorative square to fit in the center of the card.

I die cut some Ivy again using White card, painted it with Aquatints, Stamped it with Crushed Olive, trimmed to fit and lay across the top. The bit I trimmed off I placed on the inside.

A very simple and quick card, I have left a sentiment off until I use it.

Items Used:

Sheena Douglass White Stamping Card
Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners Festive Ivy
Spellbinders Decorative Curved Square
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Crushed Olive
Spray bottles.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
