Sepia & Don't Be Square ;0)

Hi Crafty Bloggers

How are we all ? I have had a lovely lazy day today ....had fun crafting ....
always love colouring a new stamp  !! I have chosen Summer Wedding Tilda and tried the Sepia effect using walnut stain distress ink and brushed corduory ...and a touch of pink as I just love the vintage look with one colour . I have only tried it a couple of times so still practicing..

I have cut the shapes from the cricut using Maja Summer Basics Paper. I have tucked lots of cheesecloth behind her for texture.  The papers have been embossed randomly with Stampendous white embossing powder. I made a frame around her using strips of card that I embossed and used vintage brads which I embossed too ! Had fun with the heat gun lol

I saw ribbons hanging like this in blogland somewhere by a talented crafter and thought what a cool idea !  The little Kaisercraft letter stickers spell out beautiful  .

I cut the hearts in three sizes on the cricut then embossed them and layered them. I have surrounded them with these tiny roses.

I hope you like my creation ..I would like to enter into the following super challenges ;-

Thank you for visiting and I hope your having a lovely start to the week ;0)

The Theme is Your Interpretation of Summer . I thought of making a fan to cool me down ...and used Waterlily Tilda as she is splashing around in the sea to cool her down !!. Just love going to the seaside on a hot Summer's day just relaxing on the beach and watching the world go by !! 

I have used papermill card which I have folded concertina style and then folded in half. I have used beautiful beaded trim on the bottom and the holder is made up of lots of floral peaky tab dies stuck together to make it a strong handle !!. I have added pretty little roses,pins,fan charm and ribbon bow. The metal flower I have popped a beautiful blue brad from doodlebug which was from a lovely bloggy friend ;0).
