I created this 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" mat as my entry for the June challenge at the 'Frilly and Funky Challenge Blog'. All the information on this challenge can be found HERE on their blog.
I started by cutting a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card from medium weight chipboard. I then used molding paste on a sunburst shaped stencil.
While paste dried I made the roses with 'Tattered Floral' dies by Tim Holtz. Smaller flowers and roses are made with a five petaled punch by EK. All the edges were burnished with three different Distress Ink colors.
I used many layers of Distress Inks in pinks and greens on the mat. I lightly spritzed with water and Glimmer Mist before adding all the embellishments. Which is what the challenge is all about!
The 2 1/2" rose is nestled on a layer of greenery made from various dies . The 'floating pearls' are really an old necklace from my stash. The glass beads and other pearl beads are also from my stash.
And there you have it...Thanks for stopping by...
