Beautiful Lilacs, My Besties UK Same But Different Card

Same but different week this week ..The lovely image is coloured using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah Card. ..I used a Tattered lace pinpoint basic die to cut her out and mounted her onto craft card..I then used two different pieces of paper from my Santorio ,I think its the one that came out with the image called Mirrabelle..These are beautiful and I covered the seam between the two with a pretty strip of cotton crochet type lace,which works brilliant with both papers.Then I mounted them onto craft card before adding to the 8x8 blank base.For the decoration I have used a die from Joy crafts of a Lilac,just love these flowers ,so pretty and smell so fresh and sweet too .I cut them in White 300 gsm Sheena's card from CC and coloured with SN pens and water colour pens to get the mix of colours that Lilacs have..I gently curved the blossoms and leaves and added to the card once the topper was added ..Both with 3D glue gel. This adds height and dimension..Then the game started fifty odd little flowers to add..also with 3d small and I have dexterity problems ,could not find my tweezers grr..You know how it goes took longer to hunt for them than actually stick flowers on..But boy they look fab when finished and those little touches just finish the whole flower off..If I will use them again anytime soon,well maybe lol.. I have left the sentiment off so I can add when it is sent to who it if for ..Thank you for visiting :) xx
