Funk Ancestors

My great-grandparents with three of their children

For this layout, I used a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper for the background.

These are the Wycinanka chipboard pieces I used:

I embossed all the chipboard pieces with Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing enamel.

These are the dies I used:

Flourish #13

I layered most of the diecuts over a black version, offsetting them slightly to accentuate the edges. For the Flourish #13 leaves, I traced around the edges and along the veins with a black marker (Zig Writer).

I added some pieces of natural coloured reindeer moss to the flower clusters.

Here are a couple more close-ups:

Thank you so much for taking a look!
