Hello. I'm a wee bit late with my entry this week at Crafts 4 Eternity where we have an embellishment recipe: string, flower and button. So super easy and plenty of time still to join in.
I've used papers from the Basic Grey ~ Wisteria collection and embossed the edges with gold embossing powders.
I had a bit of a problem trying to work out how to bring some string into my piece and then I had an idea. I cut a length of string, rubbed it with versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I used it as my stem for the silvery/grey flowers. Perfect!
My images are Magnolia ~ Sitting Wedding Tilda and Sitting Wedding Edwin. Coloured with copics and added some stickles.
I wanted something for them to sit on but didn't have a correctly sized bench stamp, just the Magnolia ~ Wedding Rose Arch. So I decided to just use the base of that and embossed it in gold. The Happily ever after sentiment is also by Magnolia.
The flowers and the pearl centres are all by Prima.
I am going to pop this in at the following challenges:

'love': Theme Thursday.
