Photo Inspiration at MAWTT

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a good week so far are are enjoying the fabulous warm sunshine we are having in the UK at the moment.
Fingers crossed it is here to stay for a while - I know I always feel so much better when it's warm and the sun is shining.

Today we have a new challenge over at 

and this week the lovely Red has given us a gorgeous picture to take inspiration from 

Here's what I did:

So here's what I did:

I started by covering the Dutch Doobadoo MDF Cheeseboard - from Noor Designs UK with some DP from Heartfelt Creations 'Peacock Paisley Collection'
Then I added some Texture Paste using 'Art Flowers' Mask and sprinkled with Glamour Dust before it dried.
Heartfelt Creations 'Birds and Blooms Collage' Stamp - stamped onto parchment with White Stazon and Heat Embossed with True White embossing powder - then I added colour on the reverse side using Spectrum Noir pencils and blended with Blending Solution and my finger.

Mat and layered onto white linen card with edges punched with Martha Stewart Butterfly Border Punch.

Flowers: Heartfelt Creations 'Delightful Daisy' stamped onto Design Paper and heat embossed with True White embossing powder then die cut with matching die. Foliage stamped onto parchment using Forest Moss Distress Ink. The Hobby House 'Pearl Medalions' added to  the centre of the flowers.  

Martha Stewart Butterly Punch 
Star Dust Stickles
Viva Decor Pearl Pen 'Ice White'

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

I am truly impressed with your heat embossing on that detailed stamp. I'm new to the technique (you can see my attempt for this challenge!) but your details are just perfect. Love the project x Jessie
