now for something completly different !!

Hi all
 I thought it was time i had a go at making something with grungeboard here is what i have made...a brooch and cuff bracelet to match... i cut a cuff from the grungeboard to fit around my wrist ...about 2 inches wide,i cut out some flowers using the tattered floral die by TH.
.I coloured the grungeboard cuff and flowers with victorian velvet and stormy sky distress inks on both sides of all the pieces and left them to dry...I then stamped over the all the pieces with a script stamp .I punched a small hole in the middle of each flower and then  layered up the flowers securing them with a  metal brad from the vintage range at Stampin Up
Then i glued them on the cuff and brooch back..The cuff fastens with 2 hitch fasteners from TH could also use ribbon to tie the bracelet on.
It made a nice change making these items ...they are so easy and i have had loads of  lovely comments when i wear them
