Down in her Garden

More than half way through January and another new challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow. The theme is 'Fibres and Textures'. [not just ribbon and lace].
This time I decided to look in my material scraps box to see if any could be used as a layer for my card.

Well its not very square, but it was just what I had in mind for a background layer.
Next came the muslin , closely followed with some waste scraps.  To make the bow, I sprayed the honeycomb waste with gold, this made it quite stiff and easy to gather up in the middle.
The rose is made/molded  with wax and coloured with mica powder.  I have made a promise to myself to get more use out of my melt pot this year, it has been gathering dust for months on a shelf.
The little girl  is from Graphic 45 Secret Garden stack.
All the layers were stuck down using a  material spray adhesive, its great stuff it even worked with the card stock.

Thank you for your comments, I do so appreciate you taking the time to stop by.

  16. Hi Yvonne! Your card is stunning. Another one to print and hang on my bulletin board; if I can't replicate it, I can at least drool over it!! You're amazing.
