Dreams by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my turn again and I'm here to share a card :)

1. I started off by making the flowers and stamped a piece of pale yellow copy quality paper (80gsm) with the Mini Calligraphic mat 20 in Archival chrome yellow then overstamped this with two of the flowers from Flower Power in Archival black and cut them all out ;)

2. Next I layered the large flowers with some small ones and one flower using just small flowers then pushed a brad through all the layers to hold them together.

Now the fun part for the scruchie look.....just spritz the layers with plain water and scrunch each layer into the centre. When all the layers are scrunched well, gently unfurl the layers to get the effect you want. Heat dry a little or just leave to dry naturally.

3. The background is a piece of paper from the Crowded Attic pad that I stamped with the Dance Dictionary background in Archival black and then spritzed with Perfect Pearl Mist in heirloom gold.

Grab those mists whilst they are on special offer here ;)

4. "Follow your Dreams" from journaling words 1 was stamped onto white card and cut out before attaching with dimensional pads on top of some die cut Elegant Flourishes that had been coloured with Distress Ink shabby shutters.
5. The background was first attached to some of the yellow copy paper and then to a piece of black card. A little bit of rustic twine was wrapped around and the flowers glued on top with silicone glue.
Hope your dreams come true this year :) See you soon!
xoxo Sioux
