Charms Creations Mid monthly challenge April - May

Well, I have all my DT work for this month out of the way and have really been itching to scrap some challenges.
I decided to start with the Mid Monthly challenge at Charms Creations which was a mood board inspiration challenge.

I'm on a bit of an economy drive so decided to delve into my scrap stash for this one except for the Charms Creations Heavenly Heart with butterfly, which was a very recent purchase and only arrived yesterday!

So here goes:

I got a macro lens for my birthday last month and managed to persuade my daughter Eleanor to pose for me so got a few nice shots of her. She was wearing a teal dress but it came out aqua in the photos so I decided to make it sepia to go with this old Prima Madelaine collection. I also pulled out lots of flowers from Flourish with a Bling, Prima and Kaisercraft.

And some close ups:

My Charms Heavenly Heart with wooden butterfly. Love the colours of this one.

 I created my background by stencilling using some Viva Decor crackle medium and then mixed two gelatoes with water and painted on the background.

An old Kaisercraft silk flower made a good background and there is a wooden heart from Typo.

More flowers and some chipboard from Prima then went with the collection.

And here is the inpiration board

I really enjoyed making this one. 

Thanks for looking
