Octopode Factory Challenge - Flowers


On the TOFF challenge this week it all about flowers, and Lily has two great digi downloads for free on the Frilly Underwear Blog.

I have this for the challenge, it's a wooden frame which has removable glass. I stamped and coloured the glass and then coated it in clear viva d├ęcor crackle paint.


The wooden frame was painted and then I coloured the clear viva with alcohol inks. I used this through a mask to get the diamond pattern on the frame.


Adding a quote and layered flowers. I made the flowers by stamping the flower twice for each shape, and carefully cutting along the lines on one of them and slightly bending the petals so they were raised. I stuck one cut shape to a flat flower shape and added a gem to the centre of each flower.

I added a length of chain to the top for hanging in my window recess so the light can shine through it.

I used

Glinda the Good Witch
Mini Flowers
Large Poppy
Oz Words

All the stamps can be purchased direct from Lily via her blog.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you have a nice day. Carol x
