wendy vecchi style in purples and blues...

hey there bloggers,
well here I am with my second post of the day and something that I started with trepidation but finished chuffed with what I had achieved...I am not sure if I have done Wendy Vecchi style proud but am more than happy with the outcome anyway!
here is my offering:
I am afraid as usual I have taken far too may pictures and yes I am going to blog FAR TOO MANY!!SORRY!!!
I started with a notebook which I covered with DI.The background pieces were made using various combinations of colours - tumbled glass, chipped sapphire, broken china and dusty concord, to create 3 different pieces. The background layer was lightly spritzed and dabbed off, the middle section was colored onto a piece of text from an old book and the front piece was coloured and then overstamped with script from studio 490, Wendy Vecchi, live and make art.
These stamps are brand new and I have now decided I definitely NEED more!
The flower was made from another new toy, Clearly for art modelling film, WOW this stuff is so cool!!!
I cut the flower using tattered floral die and tattered leaves die and then coloured using alcohol inks.They were then stamped using dots stamp in stazon.
This film is so cool I heated and then shaped, when cooled it maintains the sculpted shape...let me tell you it can be reheated and shaped many times, trust me I know!!!
The centres of the flower are ideaology washers and brads.
The other flower was made using the stamps, layered and again centre added.
The sentiment was added in ideaology memo pin.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
