Hi everyone!  Debbie Burns here with you today sharing a nature themed project.  I have a lot of frames that I purchased from the local dollar store.  Love the rustic look of the frame and along with lots of Creative Embellishments chipboard, I created this project.

 

 

There’s quite an assortment of foliage in the flourish section of the store.  I used 7 different designs, Poppy Set,  Fern Foliage 2,  Frond Set 3,  Mini Leaves Set 2,  Mini Leaves Set 5,  Delicate Ivy and Mini Leaves Set 1.  All pieces were treated with various colors of embossing powders.  Lots of layering with the chipboard, bits and pieces from Tim Holtz’s Ephemera Pack along with A Tim Holtz Paper Doll and some Spanish moss.

 

I used a piece from Vintage Lantern and cut off the bottom to create a butterfly cage. I embossed it with Emerald Creek Charred Gold Embossing Powder and backed the lantern with some brown netting.

 

 Poppy Set was embossed with Stampendous Aged Spice Embossing Enamel.  Mini Leaves Set 2 was embossed with a mixture of Ranger Verdigris and Emerald Creek Weathered Wood Embossing Powders.  Delicate Ivy was embossed with Blue Fern Studios Mushroom Embossing Powder, Mini Leaves Set 1 was embossed with Emerald Creek Weathered Wood and Mini Leaves Set 5 with Blue Fern Studios Forest and Avocado Embossing Powders.

 

Here are a more closeups:

 

 

Beneath all of the layering are papers from Stamperia’s Time Is An Allusion, which I stamped with the Distressed Text Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
