make your own embellishments, for anything goes challenge dt...my last

well here i am and sadly i have decided
 that this will be my last post as part of this fab anything goes design team.
i have loved being part of this team ,
 but sadly there are only so many hours in the day.
I want to say a huge thank you to all the ladies for all their kindness
and for making me so welcome.
so the challenge this time  is ..make your own embellishments..
so here is mine:
those of you who stop by here will know i love riveted
 patchwork at the moment..
so this is how i made the heart..
i added wings which have been triple embossed
underneath the layers of paint..
i have added die cuts and stuff..
very technical!!!
the flowers were made using a fab explanation
from the lovely Anne
and can be found here ....
finally i added some frantage around the edges.
make sure you  pop across to see the fab DT makes
and maybe pop in an entry yourselves..
have a fun and inky day!


  1. Gorgeous little canvas Trace. Love the soft colour against the harsh metal. The flowers are right up my street so off to have a look at those!

  2. Brilliant piece as always and I am pleased to see the return of the riveted patchwork. I think it is great that you have so many ideas about how to use it.

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. Hi Trace, you have done a great job with the flowers (thanks for the shout out too!), love the colour you have used and that embossing on the wings is fabulous. I think the DT will miss having you aboard! Crafty hugs, Anne x
