Creating Clusters with Heather

HELLO and welcome everyone. 
I have three NEW projects for you today, 
showcasing how I combine chipboard leaves and foliage with blooms,
creating delish clusters to compliment any layout.


 I combined 3 different chipboard designs with various blooms. 

The fencing wire is inked with slate ink /Kaisercraft, 
The "Angies-vine" is trimmed into smaller sections and scattered amongst the roses .
I used the top section of the "ferns" because I only required smaller leaves .
The ferns are inked with slate and then white ink is dabbed randomly 
on the edges .
The sections of the "Angie Vine" are firstly inked with White /Versa color ink.
 I added small dabs of slate to some of the pieces to create variation.

BLOOMS : Prima and Green Tara blooms
PAPERS : 7Dots Studio , Prima,  Dark Grey cardstock.

 Tara of Simply Photographic .

I just adore these "Heidis-vines". To me they look like cherries on a branch.
I applied white gesso first and then dabbed some slate ink/Kaisercraft on the edges.
Finally I stamped over the leaves with a text stamp
and dabbed some Rose /Versa Color ink on the cherries.

One of my very faves are these "Summer-leaf-stems".
I used the same process as above.
Paint with white gesso, dab slate on the edges
 and for the final touch, stamp with a text stamp to add dimension .

For my final share I created this tag
I often include a TAG with a Birthday / celebration gift


I used the
"chipboard/frame-lucys-flourish" ,
 inked with Ash Beige /Versa color ink.
I added a cluster of blooms, altered filigree, and a pearl vintage brad &
finished off with a strip of washi tape /Tim Holtz , and a background stamp.
Papers : Maja designs 
Blooms : kaisercraft and Prima
