Ada and Tom

My great-aunt Ada and her husband Tom

For this layout, I used an old piece of Authentique paper from their Blissful collection.

Authentique - Blissful - Euphoria
(I used the backside)

I stamped two floral circles with Inkadinkado Stamping Gear using stamps from the Deluxe Set 1 and Butterfly Garden set.

Stamping Gear Deluxe Set1
Stamping Gear - Butterfly Garden

I also stitched a circle in between the 2 stamped circles using the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Circles tool to punch the holes for stitching and glued some ribbon along this edge.

These are the punch and dies I used:

Martha Stewart punch
-French Scroll
Cheery Lynn Designs
-Daphne Doily
 -Romantic Rectangles

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Dusty Attic - Corner Flourish #2
Dusty Attic - Botanic Accent #2

I painted the chipboard pieces dark brown then applied Distress Crackle paint in Picket White.  I rubbed brown ink overtop, wiping off the excess then went back with a craft nib and applied more ink around the edges.

All the flowers and leaves are by 49 and Market from their Vintage Shades collection in the Cerise colour.

I also tucked some reindeer moss among the flower clusters and glued some Prills around the layout. I mixed the Fuzzy Navel and Stop Wining coloured Prills.

Thank you so much for taking a look!
