This week's Soartful Challenge was to use the Enchanted Castle image in the middle of the picture. The colours are so beautiful and romantic on this that I decided to make this one a larger image and printed it off onto lilac cardstock. I embossed the sides with my cuttlebug and highlighted the embossing with some lilac ink. I mounted the picture onto another piece of lilac cardstock and glued lace all around the edge. The 2 large paper flowers (4 layers)are made using an oval punch with scalloped edges and the smaller flowers (3 layers)with a circle punch. Using lilac cardstock again I cut the pieces out, edged them with deeper lilac ink on the front and back then sprayed them with a little water and scrunched them up. I opened them up and posted a brad through each layer scrunching them up again one at a time around the brad. The layers were opened up slightly and left to dry. It gives the petals a lovely wrinkled look. These were stuck onto the picture along with strips of white netting for stalks.
