Wedding Hanging for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

I've got another make from the archives to show you today, made with Leonie Pujol's Off She Flew set and the Flights of Fancy Background

This is the top of the box

and here's the little hanging inside

To do the purple heart panels I tried a bit of kiss stamping - where you ink up one stamp with another.
I inked the solid heart from Off She Flew with Versamark and inked the Flights of Fancy Background with Black Memento, then pressed the background stamp onto the heart.

After stamping the heart onto some ivory patterned paper I then dabbed on some purple chalk.

and die-cut it into a circle.

Next I stamped the background again onto some ivory card and rubbed over with the chalk. 

This was die-cut into a slightly larger circle to sit underneath the first one.

A die-cut circle of the same size from plain ivory card was used as a backing - I glued some pale purple organza ribbon in between the two larger circles.  

After I had done four of these I made eight flowers with a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral punch, more ivory card and some stamens. I inked the edges of the petals with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

For the butterflies I stamped one of the images from the Flight to Freedom set onto white shrink plastic with black Stazon ink, then cut them out and heated to shrink.

For the panels on the hanging I stamped some of the word chains from Clarity Stamp, and the 'With Love' for the box lid was from Leonie's Off She Flew set

I'll be back in a few days with another oldie, but in the meantime don't forget to enter my giveaway if you'd like to win these goodies :o)

This is a wonderful project Katrina. It would make a lovely gift, especially as it comes with the matching box. As always with your makes there is more to it than first meets the eye!
