AALL&Create Designer Project - Create It Grunge

Hi folks, I'm back to share another AALL&Create Designer Project using the gorgeous Create It Grunge #150 stamp set designed by Tracy Evans and Stencil Rota Vitae #49 designed by Olga Heldwein. You can check out all the stamps and stencils from AALL&Create and a list of worldwide stockistS HERE
I was inspired to create a card, or I may use it for a notebook cover, by the spring bulbs in my garden, already poking their heads through the ground despite being covered by a blanket of snow and went with a spring colour combination.

I brayered Dina Wakley Lime and Blackberry Acrylic Paints lightly on to a  4.1/4" x 7.1/4 panel of Ranger Mixed Media Heavystock card but forgot to take a photo at that stage. I then added Ranger Opaque White Texture Paste using the the beautiful motif and circles on Stencil #49.
I applied Blackberry Paint through the circles section of the stencil again using a mini round blending and applied diluted Black Soot Distress Paint over the texture paste motif and wiped back with a slightly damp cloth. I inked Create It Grunge with Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped small sections randomly on the background.. I added Black Soot Distress Paint with a dabber top to the edges of the panel.
I stamped the flower image from Create It Grunge inked with Versafine Onyx Black on to a scrap of Distress Watercoor card and painted the flowerhead and stem with the same paints diluted with water.
I fussy cut around the flower head and then tore the card down each side. I used Tim Holtz Design Ruler and Craft Pick to create holes ready for stitching. I hand stitched across the top of the panel and on small areas on either side with Black Eclectic Elements thread. I could have used my sewing machine but couldn't be bothered changing the spool and spending the rest of the afternoon attempting to rethread the needle.
I added splatters of Black and White Gesso and tied white crinkle ribbon around the panel, threading it under the stamped panel and tying in a double bow at the side. I matted the panel on to a white card blank measuring 4.1/2" x 7.1/2".

I'll be back later today to share my project for the Creativation 2019 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give-Away, 7.00am PST, 3.00pm UK and 4.00pm Europe, hope you'll join me and my very talented friends.

Stunning! I love the gorgeous colours in the background (now I need that Blackberry!) and your hand stitching and black edging makes the whole design pop. I am with you on threading the needles..... Hugs, Anne xx
