Blooming blossoms at Allsorts

 Here is my card for this week's Allsorts. I've made my first twisted easel card. Not sure if it shopuld twist the other way though! The main image is Penny black, the rest are Hero arts and the punch around the page set are Martha Stewart.
I also had a go at the crackle finish using paint and PVA, then coloured the image with distress inks.
I'm also entering this in the Just For Fun Challenge where there is an open theme.(Thanks Zoe!)
Thanks for looking!


  1. Beautiful Sally, love all the angles and the vibrant colour. XOXO Zoe

  2. Should have said earlier we have an anything goes theme this week at Just 4 Fun be wonderful if you joined us there. XOXO Zoe

  3. Gorgoeus card Sally.

    The peeled paint background came our beautifully, it's always a bit hit and miss I find. And PB Candid is so vrsatile, I used it as daffodils the other day.

    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation and joining in my Bloomin’ Blossoms theme at Allsorts this week.

    See you Saturday - glad I changed my mind about doing peeled paint - I didn't think it was messy enough !! That said you could have done the class for me because I'm not sure how much use I am going to be to you all. Time will tell.
