Berry71Bleu's April Challenge-Handmade Flowers

Over at Berry71bleu the April challenge is HANDMADE flowers.  I love making flowers so my project has 'a couple' on it...I took this frame I picked up on clearance and turned it into a clipboard frame.

The clip is Tim Holtz, the background paper is Echo Park Getaway, the flowers are made from MME paper and Tim Holtz dies and the flower centers are pearl beads.

Now the frame was a shiny silver so of course I had to distress that...alcohol ink, paste, sandpaper, acrylic paint and distress crackle paint in clear rock candy.


I inked the edges of all the flower with distress ink in walnut stain.
