Revamp and Update with Tanda

For the current "Tanda Teaser" the
brief is to revisit a piece of work that you have already completed and then
update it. The first picture shows the sample I made using using the Tanda mack 2 set. This has been living in my drawer at home for a couple of years and I decided that I wanted to update it and make it a bit more special before I sent it to my Sister in Law for her birthday.

The following pictures show the finished card.....

The first thing I did was to run a line of zig-zag stitches around the edges of the water colour paper, then a line of straight stitches around the edge of the grey matted card. I stamped the edges of the card with an ink splatter stamp from PaperArtsy using Victorian Velvet distress ink. The flowers, leaves and tag were die cut from hand-made paper using a mixture of spellbinders and Tim Holtz dies.

I've probably upset all the clean and simple fans out there, but I have to say that I am pleased with the resulting card.

I would like to enter this into the following
"Make it Monday - Anything goes"
"Marks finest papers - shades of pink"

"Stamps & fun - Make your own flowers"
"the Crazy Challenge - Add a Sentiment"
"Sweet Stampin' - Anything goes"
"Simon Says Stamp - anything goes"
