A Bouquet of Love

Hello!  Today I have another Cheery Lynn Designs creation showcasing an 8x8 layout featuring the Mega Tea Party Doily.

Isn’t this doily just gorgeous?! The details are just phenomenal! What a fun texture the Cuties #1 flower adds. I inked and embossed leaves from Stacker Flowers #1 Leaf and Small Dimensional Leaves #2 to tuck under the flower. A swirl from the Fanciful Flourish gives the finishing touch.
The title is highlighted by the beautiful and delicate lacy die, Anastasia Border. Toward the bottom you can see the lovely details of the scalloped Border Carnivale.

The bouquet is centered around the flower I created using Sweet Williams. I layered about 15-20 layers of tissue paper for each size die. Yes, you can easily cut that many layers tissue paper at one time. Once cut, I attached the layers with a brad. After having the brad in place, I fluffed the layers by pulling them apart and scrunching them slightly with my fingers. To add a bit of color, I lightly rubbed the edges of the flower directly to a distress ink pad. Finishing it off, I spritzed the flower with Pearl Glimmer Mist allowing the distress ink to blend, and adding a bit of shimmer to the flower.

To the left of the flower is the Large Rose and Miniature Rose. I’ve used leaves from Stacker Flower #1 Leaf, Dimensional Small Leaves #2, Dimensional Large Leaves #2. Fanciful Flourish, Pair of Ferns, and Olive Branches make great fillers, adding nice texture and dimension. The bouquete rests atop of the Victorian Romance Flourish. Of course I had to add one of my all-time favorite Exotic Mini Butterflies!
