Heartfelt Creations Flower Garden

Standard

Hi Everyone

Well it has been a while since my last blog, and in between my little projects of family birthday and anniversary cards, I have been making this flower garden and birdcage display.

I have used all Heartfelt Creations flowers as these are my all time favourites, and I have tried to make them look as real as I possibly could, some I have stamped and others not. I have also used Heartfelt open leaf and Memory box fern.

For my cage

I started off with just white card, and cut out my birdcage in two parts, and used some wooden BBQ sticks to add strength, the base is made from MDF and I added some beads for the feet.

For the top I used an old curtain ring and a wooden door knob which I cut down.

I then aged it all using some of Andy Skinners techniques as I wanted to achieve a Medieval type look for it.

Flowers and leaves

I used plain white card for all of the flowers and leaves, and coloured them with distress inks, pro markers and Dylusions sprays.

I then shaped them and added some wire to create stems, on some of the flower centres I added flower soft and also created some small buds using the flowers from the leafy branch set.

The Majestic Bloom is also inside the cage but is a little hidden.

I have thoroughly enjoyed making all of these flowers, it has been challenging and time-consuming, but worth it in the end

I hope you will agree

Thanks for visiting today
