Creating CLUSTERS with Chippies and Blooms

Today it is my turn over at 

Combining chipboard leaves and foliage with blooms 
are perfect for creating Delish clusters
to compliment a layout


 I combined 3 different chipboard designs with various blooms. 
the fencing wire is inked with slate ink /kaisercraft, 
the Angies-vine is trimmed into smaller sections and scattered amongst the roses .
I used the top section of the ferns because I only required smaller leaves .
The ferns are inked with slate and then white ink is dabbed randomly 
on the edges .
The sections of the Angie Vine are firstly inked with White /Versa color ink.
 I added small dabs of slate to some of the pieces to create variation. 

BLOOMS : Prima and Green Tara blooms
PAPERS : 7Dots Studio , Prima,  Dark Grey cardstock. 

the stunning photo of Miss T taken by
 Tara of Simply Photographic .

I just adore these heidis-vines. To me they look like cherries on a branch
I applied white gesso first and then dabbed some slate ink/kaisercraft on the edges,
finally I stamped over the leaves with a text stamp
and dabbed some Rose /Versa Color ink on the cherries.

one of my very faves are these summer-leaf-stems
I used the same process as above.
paint with white gesso, dab slate on the edges
 and for the final touch, stamp with a text stamp to add dimension .

for my final share I created this tag
I often include a TAG with a Birthday / celebration gift

I used the chipboard/frame-lucys-flourish , inked with Ash Beige /Versa color ink
I added a cluster of blooms, altered filigree, and a pearl vintage brad .
finished off with a strip of washi tape /Tim Holtz , and a background stamp .

papers : Maja designs 
blooms : kaisercraft and Prima
